One thing is clear: the use of construction machinery must become more sustainable! For people, the environment, and the climate. With its pioneering e-Performance innovations, Bomag is placing battery-powered machines at the focus of its 2022 bauma presentation. Following the successful launch of the BT 60 e tamper, visitors can now look forward to the first battery-powered vibratory plates from Boppard, the BP 18/45 e and BP 10/36 e. The company will also be demonstrating just how much power the newly electrified BW 100 AD 5 e and BW 120 AD 5 e light tandem rollers can apply to asphalt. Emission-free and low-noise: with even more e-Performance, Bomag offers construction companies a future-proof and highly efficient alternative – not only for inner-city construction sites and noise-sensitive locations but wherever strict emission limits apply. The machines will be available from spring/summer 2023.
The BP 18/45 e and BP 10/36 e electric vibratory plates are every bit as powerful as the combustion engine versions when it comes to coping with fill heights of up to 25 cm on gravel or sand or 20 cm on mixed soil. Thanks to their compact dimensions and low weight, the machines are particularly easy to manoeuvre and achieve a working speed of 25 m/min. The straight-edged base plate enables extremely precise compaction along kerbs or walls. It is made of high-quality wear-resistant material. This makes the most stressed component of the vibratory plates extremely hard-wearing and durable.
The future of compaction is emission-free
From light earthworks to asphalt construction or paving work, the BP 18/45 e and BP 10/36 e were developed as high-performance machines with one clear objective: to be as efficient and environmentally friendly as possible! In terms of compaction performance, the electric vibratory plates are no different from conventional plates. By definition, they produce no direct CO2 emissions and no harmful exhaust fumes, so they can be used safely wherever strict pollution limits have to be met, such as for work in tunnels, inside buildings or in trenches. Bomag’s powerful CO2 vibratory plates are also a good choice for inner-city repair and correction work.
The plates can be operated with the proven eP 20 (20 Ah) and eP 28 (28 Ah) power packs – already used in the BT 60 e electric tamper. Swapping power packs is both quick and easy with the release lever. One battery charge is sufficient for an average working day; an LED display shows the current charge level.
Low operating and energy costs
Electric drives are renowned for being virtually maintenance-free; neither engine oil nor fuel filter need to be changed. Those wishing to do even more for the environment can charge their Bomag batteries with green electricity.
Safe and more productive thanks to minimised hand-arm vibrations
Work ergonomics are always a top priority at Bomag: the folding guide bar is mounted on large rubber silent blocks. This reduces harmful hand-arm vibrations to a minimum enabling safe and fatigue-free guidance of Bomag’s innovative vibratory plates with uncompromising e-Performance.
