The collaboration with Flash Battery was central in the development of Multitel Pagliero’s first lithium-ion battery hybrid truck-mounted platform
The lifting industry is not new to electric power supplies. As early as in the not too distant past, many OEMs of machines intended for lifting goods and people at heights had sensed and implemented an initial revolution in terms of power supplies, electrifying self-propelled aerial platforms, tracked self-propelled machines (spiders), scissor lifts, forklifts, etc.
For truck-mounted platforms on B or C licence vehicles, the conversion process to electric power is certainly more complicated. Hence the fact that the first truck-mounted platforms developed are not full electric but hybrid, i.e., in short, mounted on an endothermic-powered vehicle, whose engine also provides the energy required to move the platform, which, in turn, is equipped with systems such that it can exclude the engine and be moved, if necessary, completely electrically.
One such model is Multitel Pagliero’s MTE 230 Hybrid, equipped with the 51.2V lithium Flash Battery, with its 5.4kWh of energy.
