Meet Energya K42E, the Electric Concrete Pump

Energya K42E is a powerful truck pump which can operate in full electric mode without compromising performance. It includes many technological innovations that revolutionise the idea of a concrete pump, reducing consumption and emissions but with the same consistent performance as a traditional model. The boom extends for up to 42 metres, and consists of five sections with the last two made from carbon fibre. A unique feature of the Carbotech range, this clever solution optimises the weight of the machine without compromising its sturdiness and reliability.  The K42E is equipped with a state-of-the-art system that uses a 30 Amp Hour Cell battery pack to power two electric motors: the first drives the hydraulic pump to move the boom and open the outriggers; while the second drives the pumping unit (with a closed circuit and maximum capacity of 160 m3/hour at 80 bar) and other services. If the job requires higher performance than the batteries can provide, the new Energya pump can be connected directly to an electrical outlet on site. The system will then cut out the batteries and power the electric motors directly (a 40-metre power cable is included). This means the system will continue to operate with the Diesel engine of the truck switched off and therefore without emitting exhaust gas and noise. In the case of a complete lack of electrical sources, an emergency system allows you to connect the K42E to the truck's power take-offs and therefore use the engine to complete the work and close the boom and outriggers. 

The Energya brand has been a revolution for the sector ever since its launch in 2013 with the first electric concrete mixer in the world, presaging such current concerns as the importance of electrification for sustainability, automation and connectivity.
