Electrification Drivers in MEWP

Increased Global Demand Driven by Construction

Construction and infrastructure developments worldwide are driving the rapid growth and demand for MEWP machines, which will increase over the next five years.

Sustainability and Reducing GHG’s

Electrification of large mobile elevated work platforms is being driven by the need to meet standards for zero emission and low-noise operating qualities.

Better Efficiency and Reduced Operating Costs

Improvements in battery technology and lower operating and maintenance costs for electric drive equipment provides a strong business case for electrification versus traditional hydraulic systems.

The Need for Reliable Charging

Dirty, wet construction sites and poor charging practices present the biggest challenges for charging the batteries of scissor, boom and hybrid lifts. Batteries represent the largest cost of an electric MEWP, so choosing the right battery charger solution is an essential consideration to maximize battery life, enable reliable machine performance and avoid early battery pack replacement.

Delta-Q is an established, trusted supplier for the many machine types found within the global MEWP industry, as well as many other mature electrifying industrial segments. In addition to our chargers meeting global regulatory requirements, they’re engineered to an IP66 – IP67 ruggedness rating to withstand damage from vibration, water, dust and cleaning solutions. Charge quality and compatibility with lead-acid and lithium-ion chemistries (offered by leading battery suppliers) are tested and validated in our battery lab. Whether you’re looking for a charging solution that is on-board or off-board, Delta-Q is the proven expert in battery charging.
