First SENNEBOGEN Battery Powered 50t Crawler Crane Unveiled

SENNEBOGEN is presenting its first battery-powered telescopic crawler crane at bauma 2022: the 653 E Electro Battery. The new 50t battery-powered crane combines the benefits of battery technology with the proven advantages of the telescopic crawler crane design. This means you work completely emission-free and retain maximum flexibility thanks to the Dual Power Management system.

Developed in collaboration with Dutch dealer Van den Heuvel, the machine is the first battery-powered telescopic crawler crane in the range.

Especially in inner-city areas, environmental requirements are becoming increasingly stringent in Europe, and these are increasingly including construction machinery. SENNEBOGEN already has two battery-powered material handlers in its material handling product portfolio. Thanks to sales partner Van den Heuvel working closely with Dutch crane rental companies and construction companies, the valuable market requirements from the progressive Dutch market have now been factored into in a development partnership and a 50t telescopic battery-powered crane has been developed in collaboration with the dealer. With coordinated battery technology and analogue charging management, this crane is perfectly adapted to applications in the construction industry thanks to the collaboration.



The battery-powered version of the 50t SENNEBOGEN 653 telescopic crawler crane, the 653 Electro Battery, has a powerful 130 kW electric motor instead of the diesel engine, powered by a lithium-ion battery in the upper carriage. The high-quality, liquid cooled battery system, which is particularly durable and has already proven itself on- and off-road under the toughest conditions, has a capacity of 210 kWh and is connected to an intelligent battery management system (BMS). Depending on the type of use, the crane operates in battery mode for up to 14 hours.

For charging, the machine simply needs to be connected to a standardized 32 A CEE industrial socket, which is usually available on any construction site. Thanks to the 22kW on-board charger, there is no need to invest in additional charging stations. The integrated power electronics also ensure a particularly smooth motor start-up that is gentle on the mains power grid.
