FAYMONVILLE (DUPLICATE WITH INNOVATION - TRAILER - MEDIUM WEIGHT)

The unique hybrid Power Pack Unit technology of the self-propelled modular trailer Eco1000 by Cometto.

Entry Overview:
Cometto has developed a new product where the Power Pack Unit is integrated under the loading platform. The so called Cometto Eco1000 is the new self-propelled electronically steered modular vehicle with integrated Power Pack Unit for in-plant transport jobs up to a payload of 1000 t. The whole concept builds on a future-oriented modular principle and offers an easy connect and drive configuration.

Cometto provides the widest range with the Eco1000 on the market: the compact vehicle is available with 2, 4 and 6 axle lines! They can be combined up to 4 units with interchangeable components, a wide selection of accessories and different Power Pack technologies: traditional propulsion technology for continuous performance, hybrid or the electric solution. And this hybrid option is UNIQUE and absolutely NEW TO THE MARKET

Describe the main objectives:
The customer has the freedom of choice between three different technologies of Power Pack Units. The widest range of Power Pack Units assures maximum flexibility. All Power Pack Units, traditional propulsion for continuous performance, hybrid and electric technology to meet the most advanced emissions standards requirements of the market have been designed and tested under the hardest conditions. They represent the cutting edge of technology and offer the highest performance and efficiency either in cold arctic conditions or in the dry desert heat.

With the hybrid Power Pack Unit of the self-propelled trailer, customers stay more flexible. Thanks to hybrid technology, they can combine the range of a traditional propulsion technology with the cleanliness of an electric motor and drive zero-emission distances. The lithium battery will be charged while driving and by recuperation, but also at its dedicated charging station. This Power Pack Unit is specifically designed for an outdoor – indoor use where full electric working is requested only for a specific work cycle. The hybrid unit is available for the 2-axles type with 2 driven suspensions and the 4-axles type, with 2 driven suspensions.

What were the outcomes?:
The name of the product speaks for itself: Eco1000 includes the word “eco” and this reflects the philosophy behind the development. “Eco” for “Economical” means that we want to save energy, time and resources. The idea was to be “eco”-friendly and to generate an “eco-logic system.

In our daily life, the hybrid car solution becomes more and more common. And Cometto brings this technology into the special transport world. The hybrid principle means that the trailer uses two engines i.e. an electric motor and a conventional diesel engine. The electric engine powers the vehicle at lower speeds and diesel engine powers it at higher speeds.

A hybrid transport system not only conserves fuel but also produce less CO2 emissions and contributes to a green footprint with the sector.

In short (40 words), please summaries your entry:
While the technology has existed since the early 1900’s, it has only been in the past decade that hybrid solutions came up. Cometto brings this environment-friendly technology now with its new Eco1000 into the special transport world.
