Volvo CE customers have access to off-grid electric vehicle charging systems from Beam Global
Global beam has partnered with Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) to enable Volvo CE’s 245 North American dealerships to bundle Beam EV ARC off-grid charging systems with the purchase of Volvo electrical equipment. This joint offering enables construction sites to rapidly deploy electric vehicle (EV) charging, without the need for electrical works, grid connections or fossil fuel generators, to power zero-emissions construction equipment that works in the sun and do not generate an electricity bill. .
“The construction industry has an opportunity to future-proof its business against noise, carbon emissions regulations and volatile fossil fuel costs by embracing electric machinery,” said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Beam Global. “By supplying our sustainable electric vehicle charging systems alongside Volvo’s best electric machines, we are enabling this transition in the fastest, cleanest and most scalable way available. We are proud to partner with Volvo CE to electrify the construction industry. »
Volvo CE currently offers five models of electric machines in North America, the L20 and L25 electric wheel loaders and the EC18, ECR18 and ECR25 electric excavators. Now Volvo dealers can bundle transportable off-grid solar EV charging systems with electric machine controls. Together, ARC and Volvo electric EV machines produce zero emissions, dramatically reduce noise levels and energy costs, making them ideal for construction sites where emissions regulations, noise ordinances or hazards Indoor air pollution limits the use of diesel generators and construction equipment. .
“The Volvo CE range of zero-emission construction equipment can now be charged with a zero-emission power source provided by the EV ARC. Beam Global shares our vision to electrify mobility worldwide, a critical step towards mitigating climate change and reducing noise and air pollution,” said Ray Gallant, vice president of management products and productivity at Volvo CE. “The construction industry is ready for an energy transition that reduces emissions and improves the performance, longevity and user-friendliness of machines. We are committed to an electric future and see Beam Global as a strategic partner in this journey. »
Compact and easily transportable, the EV ARC system can be installed and ready to use in minutes as a charging solution for electric machines from Volvo CE. The EV ARC is completely self-contained. Whether the project is in a remote nature reserve or a densely populated city with strict zoning rules, the solar-powered ARC EV can be deployed without any electrical work or permits.
The offer is available through the Volvo dealer network. As the EV ARC is part of the extended offerings catalog, Volvo Financial Services can be used to lease or finance the EV ARC and bundled compact electric machines with flexible financing options.
