Three 100% Mecalac Electric Machines for a Zero-Emission Worksite


Mecalac revolutionizes urban worksites, paving the way for more optimized, cleaner and quieter construction

Mecalac, world leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of compact machines for urban worksites, is deploying three 100% electric machines from Annecy-France for a jobsite that is installing electric points that will supply power for boats and for infrastructures to host cultural and sporting events. This initiative is in line with Mecalac’s commitment to promoting environmentally-friendly practices, while guaranteeing optimal performance in the field, compactness and a real autonomy of 8h (i.e. a full working day).

Presented on April 26 in the presence of the Mayor of Annecy and the General Secretary of the Haute-Savoie Prefecture, this project, which has been underway since March 11 and will run until the end of May, stands out as an example of the energy transition taking place. Mecalac’s three electric machines – the e12 wheel loader, the eS1000 swing loader and the eMDX dumper – provide emission-free operation, meeting the growing demand for more environmentally-friendly solutions.

Thanks to these electric machines, this worksite benefits not only from a significant reduction in on-site emissions, but also from the reduced noise level of the machine which is 10 times lower than that of their traditional thermal equivalents.

„We are proud to be taking part in this low-carbon project, in a place that is particularly close to our hearts. Our machines are designed and assembled locally in our Annecy plant”, explains Alexandre MARCHETTA, President of the Mecalac Group.

Combined with other measures, such as the reuse of excavated soil, the site’s projected carbon footprint is 25% lower than for an equivalent project carried out using standard means and methods.

This initiative marks a new milestone in Mecalac’s commitment to ecological innovation in the construction sector. The company will continue to develop sustainable and innovative solutions to environmental challenges, while supporting economic growth and social progress.
