Exhibiting companies incentives are needed to facilitate the transition to hybrid or electric operating machinery

 

Verona, 8 May 2023 – The green revolution in the construction machinery sector has begun. Many manufacturers on the market already offer a range of electric or hybrid vehicles: from mini-excavators to trucks with cranes through to concrete mixers.

 

The turning point for sustainability is around the corner and is the goal we must aim for. Many of the 536 companies exhibiting at Samoter are convinced of this. The international construction machinery exhibition was scheduled at Veronafiere until yesterday Sunday 7 May.

 

Low-impact technologies are a reality by now: yet while they are environmentally sustainable, is this also the case in economic terms? Once again, it is a question of making ends meet. Currently, zero-emission construction sites still cost about 30% more than "conventional" ones, although savings are amortized over the longer term thanks to lower fuel and maintenance costs.

 

So, at the moment, the way ahead to make new environmentally friendly technologies even more competitive seems to be linked with incentive policies to stimulate demand and activate scale economies on the move towards the complete transition of the machinery fleet.

 

This emerged at Samoter during the “Working with zero emissions? Here's how, in our virtual urban construction site” conference organised in collaboration with Vaielettrico.



SAMOTER: DEMOLITION IS A SERIOUS MATTER: THE EXAMPLE OF THE MILAN EXPO AREA AT THE NADECO CONFERENCE

 

Verona, 8 May 2023 – There is a new paradigm in the construction world: to limit soil consumption as far as possible, each new project must involve the demolition of the pre-existing one. A stage that until recently was thought could be improvised; however, today, thanks to a virtuous path of innovation, it has to uphold precise and very high safety, environmental and regulatory standards.

 

This was premise that opened the "Not only demolition: machinery, case histories and results" conference organized by NADECO, the National Association for Demolition and the Circular Economy in Construction held at Samoter, the international construction machinery exhibition scheduled at Veronafiere until yesterday.

Speakers reported full-scale examples of demolition projects to highlight the need to follow a precise process involving organization, technology, safety and vision.




SAMOTER: SAFETY AND TECHNOLOGY - A WINNING COMBINATION FOR SITE MACHINERY 

 

Verona, 8 May 2023- Technology and digitization help improve safety in the workplace because they enable the implementation of preventive measures to reduce accidents, theft and damage. However, on their own, these items are not enough: it is essential to raise awareness among operators at all levels.

 

This emerged during "The advantages of new technologies supporting safety" conference held at Samoter, the international construction machinery exhibition at Veronafiere until yesterday organized in collaboration with IPAF (International Powered Access Federation).
