Mammoet Now Offers Zero-Emission SPMT Option


June 7, 2023 - Mammoet now offers a zero-emission option for SPMT transport, compatible with any trailer in its fleet.

It’s available on new trailers and can also be retrofitted to existing units.

The option comes by replacing the diesel powertrain inside existing trailers with a Mammoet-developed electric alternative that has comparable power to existing industry standard units.

The new, optional PPU vastly reduces noise levels at project sites, resulting in a safer and more productive work environment for customers and colleagues.

Communication between staff is clearer, while at locations where sound restrictions are in place longer operational windows are now possible.

The system represents another step towards zero emissions on site, eliminating the carbon footprint of SPMT transport. This allows Mammoet customers to meet increasingly strict environmental legislation more easily, reducing the impact of transport phases on surrounding communities and infrastructure.

Mammoet says it also demonstrates the company’s strong commitment to the energy transition, and to its own sustainability.

Retrofitting existing SPMT fleets cuts down both on waste and additional fabrication, compared to sourcing new zero-emission equipment.

This solution was partly financed by the DKTI, a Dutch government program to develop climate technologies and innovations in logistics.

Mammoet worked with a leading provider of zero-emission powertrains for heavy industry to bring the electric power pack to market.

Developed by Mammoet in 1984 and with over 40,000 axle lines in use globally, the SPMT, or Self-propelled Modular Transporter, revolutionized heavy industry by maneuvering practically any load safely, efficiently and with precision.

This next step in its story will be just as significant, reducing their CO2 and NOx emissions to nil and pointing the way towards a sustainable future for heavy transport.
