ENERGYA SERIES is based on an innovative system for moving the drum that combines the advantages of traditional technology with those of electric technology. In traditional truck mixers, drum movement is generated by a hydraulic system; but in truck mixers in the ENERGYA series, it’s produced by an electric induction motor that receives energy from a lithium-ion battery. Plug-in hybrid means that the batteries can be charged from both the power grid and through a generator powered by a diesel engine on the truck that allows the truck mixer to be fully operational even when the batteries are dead. ENERGYA is also equipped with KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) the system that permits energy recovery during vehicle deceleration.
