Optimas paving laying machine
The built-in electric motor has an output of 14/23 kW and allows the paving machine a top speed of 14 km/h, which is more than sufficient for the performance profile of this machine.
In order to successfully use the paving machine in practice, eCap has implemented a concept of replaceable batteries. A 15 kWh battery charge enables the machine to operate continuously for approx. 2.5 hours.
The challenge for our team was to electrify the vehicle on a 48 V system with easy-to-replace lithium-ion batteries for continuous operation of the vehicle in daily work. As a result, the electric paving machine created a world first for this vehicle class and a prime example of e-prototype development by eCap.
