It’s time to think hybrid

A‌s a response to the fast growing demand for more sustainable crushing and screening equipment, Metso Outotec is introducing the Lokotrack e-Power range, which brings the diesel-electric Lokotrack mobile crushing and screening units into one offering. The range includes 15 crushers and 6 screens, making it the market’s broadest portfolio of hybrid mobile crushing and screening equipment. “We introduced the first Lokotrack E-models  already 35 years ago,” says Kimmo Anttila, VP, Lokotrack solutions at Metso Outotec. “During the past couple of years the demand for hybrid solutions has really taken off as environmental regulations have become increasingly stringent in more countries.”

The Lokotrack e-Power range is an important factor in realizing the goals of Metso Outotec’s Planet Positive initiative. With Planet Positive, Metso Outotec is committed to limiting global warming to 1.5 °C. Aggregate crushing is very energy-intensive; thanks to the development actions to lower fuel consumption, the annual CO2 emissions of the Lokotrack equipment are 20 000 tons lower today compared to the situation before 2010. Kimmo Anttila adds: “A diesel and hybrid offering complete each other; in remote locations where power grid is not available, a diesel driveline is still the only ­viable solution. Lokotrack is robust, energy efficient, and highly mobile – and it meets the versatile needs of customers today and tomorrow.”
