Sany launches electric equipment

The all electric battery tractor is a 6x4 design based on the road trucks that are commonly used instead of dedicated terminal tractors at many ports in China and elsewhere in Asia. The new Sany machine is called the SEV2503 and features a 331.7 kWh lithium ion battery powering two electric motors driving a two-speed gearbox.


The SEV2503 can pull a full load of 67t at a maximum speed of 25 km/h (30 km/h empty). A dual port charging system delivers a slow charge time of two hours and fast charging cycle of just 60 minutes. Sany claims the battery can support up to 22 hours of operation with a total travel distance of up to 150km. The company is prepared to warranty the battery for 5 years or 200,000 km. Several units are in service today at different ports in China.


Sany confirmed to WorldCargo News that it has built a fully electric 4x2 tractor prototype and plans to enter this market soon.


Also unveiled at TOC Asia was Sany’s new all electric empty container handler, the SDC E 90. This is a based on a 9t FLT and also has a 331.7 kWh battery, delivering up to 12 hours of autonomous operation in an empty handling application.


Based on 4,000 hours of operation per year, Sany claims its electric ECH can reduce total fuel costs by 70%, and the price premium over a diesel machine can be recouped in year.


The first unit is now in service at Xiamen port.
