An in-depth examination, at the dawn of the new year, of the prospects for electrification in the lifting segment, with Flash Battery’s predictions of future technological developments and investments in lithium batteries.
The lithium battery market is a market that has seen the exponential rise of more or less credible and reliable players, but the electrification of mobile machines and plants is a serious business, a matter of progress that cannot be left to improvisation and mere market speculation. This is why Europe is responding to the challenge with a sector that is taking giant steps in the direction of sustainability applied to construction sites and their dynamics. Among these we find Flash Battery, forging ahead in this 2022 that is now coming to an end and projected in a strategic plan that counts a portfolio of projects and realisations in great growth in the lifting sector, with new challenging objectives and collaborations of an increasingly international nature.
Matteo Marmai, Senior Key Account Manager of the Italian company, spoke about this multi-year strategy and the results achieved by Flash Battery technology. He discussed the state of the art of the electric transition in the lifting equipment sector and, more generally, in construction machinery.
“Today, in the lifting equipment sector, due to the specifics of current technology in terms of space, volumes, costs, and recharging infrastructure, the trend is towards the electrification of small applications, with batteries ranging from 5 to 100kWh. We are talking about a wide range of manufacturers that from 2020 – with a forecast projection up to 2026 – will allow us to grow steadily, with an annual turnover increase in the order of 25% for this segment.”
