At TOC Europe in Amsterdam from 27-29 June, Hyster Europe discussed projects to electrify container handlers, the launch of a new 11-tonne empty container handling truck, and more.
Zero Emissions with Electric Laden Container Handlers
In the near future, terminals are expected to be able to electrify their Big Truck fleets and produce zero emissions, while achieving full shift performance comparable to a diesel-powered truck. At the TOC Europe event, Jan-Willem van den Brand from Hyster revealed that a 52-tonne capacity Hyster® laden container handling truck with an electric motor will shortly be entering the test phase.
Launch of 11T Hyster Empty Container Handler
At the event, Hyster launched the H11XM-ECD9 Empty Container Handler which enables double handling capabilities for any empty container, even 40ft reefers. Alongside the tough new H11XM-ECD9, there are four other new models in the H8-11XM-ECD9 series, which replaces the popular H18-23XM-12EC series, and will suit both current and future empty container handling requirements.
Forklift simulator experience
On the Hyster® stand at TOC, visitors enjoyed a virtual reality simulator which accurately re-creates the experience of using a 3 tonne Hyster® Fortens® counterbalance lift truck. Anyone can get behind the wheel for an immersive 3D experience of even the toughest operating conditions.
With a full range of handling equipment suitable for ports and terminals, from ship to port-side store, Hyster offers support globally via its network of strong partners.
