PowerPacks and Hybrid Solutions
A Green Choice
Increasingly strict environmental regulations in major European cities impose demanding requirements for both emissions and noise levels of vehicles working in inner city areas. Equipping the aerial access platform vehicle with an electric motor is a straightforward response to those requirements. We offer various solutions for hybrid power packs including Lithium Ion and VRLA GEL battery packs available for vans, pickup truck and trucks in both 12 and 48 volt configurations.
The power pack is an environmentally friendly alternative to an aerial access platform driven solely by the diesel engine of the vehicle. The electric motor greatly reduces the noise output and eliminates all emissions produced by a diesel engine, as the diesel engine is shut down during aerial work. With the hybrid power pack, the vehicle is equipped with an electric motor and a battery package.
100 % electric and hybrid solutions
When driving in fossil fuel vehicles is excluded from inner cities, pedestrian streets and other areas sensetive to noise and polluting engines, Versalift offers a soulution. We offer plenty models which are 100 % electric and carbon neutral, and hybrid solutions with zero nuisances to nearby surroundings.
The hybridsystem is a environmentally friendly alternative to a lift vehicle, which is operated exclusively by the vehicle’s diesel engine. The electric motor significantly reduces noise and eliminates all CO2 emissions done by a diesel engine, as it is switched off during operation and the work can be carried out completely silent and non polluting. We offer different hybridsystems to both vans, pickups and trucks, in both 12 and 48 volt configurations and with either Lithium-ion or VRLA GEL batteries.
Hybrid solution - also for retrofitting
A hybrid lift is a good solution, if you are not ready to go all in on electric.
Almost all our lifts can be produced as hybrid, all it requires is sufficient payload, as the extra weight of the battery pack must be taken into account – only a few models does not have the excess payload.
There is also the option of retrofitting the Hybrid system, so if your current Versalift product is a fossil fuel vehicle, and you want this upgraded to hybrid, we can easily upgrade your lift to this.
Feel free to contact us and learn more about Hybrid and find out whether your particular product has the option of retrofitting. We are ready to help you.
Lithium Ion battery package
A Lithium Ion battery package provides capacity for one days use, recharges overnight and will be operational for 2000 recharge cycles before the capacity drops to 80%. This configuration weighs between 90 and 180 kg depending on the specific capacity.
The electric motor and all battery cells are stored in a closet between the pedestal and the cabin taking up a limited portion of the valuable space in the van.
Lithium Ion batteries are significantly lighter than the GEL batteries we use for truck mounted Hybrid systems, as a similar capacity weighs only a third using Lithium Ion batteries.
