Practical applications of current and future alternative drive technologies for earthmoving machines and material handling technology will be presented. Practical concepts as well as construction equipment and material handlers powered by different primary energy sources such as diesel, HVO, electricity and hydrogen are set to be showcased.
Machines set to highlight the work of alternative concepts include Liebherr’s first battery-electric wheel loader and first battery-electric telehandler.

This means crane movements can also be executed using electricity. The new version of the compact 50-tonne machine helps reduce emissions.
With the slogan ‘Game changer for tomorrow’s energy’, Liebherr will also present the new LR 12500-1.0 crawler crane, boasting 2,500-tonne load-bearing capacity.
