Cemex trials Volvo FMX electric cement mixer in Germany

Cemex has received its first fully electric, zero exhaust emission heavy duty concrete mixer from Volvo Trucks.

The FMX Electric will be operating at a ready-mix concrete plant in Spandau, Berlin, starting this month and with interest in fully electric heavy-duty transport increasing, Volvo Trucks and Cemex are now working to develop the technologies needed to make emissions-free transport in construction a reality.

Volvo Trucks president Roger Alm said: “Both our companies have committed to ambitious sustainability targets and collaboration is the way to get there.

“Together we will work to implement emission-free transport in the construction industry. Our electric trucks are zero emissions and their silent operation also provides a better environment for people working at construction sites, as well as for residents living nearby.”

Volvo Trucks said the new mixer can be used for a full day’s work, with just a single top-up charge needed during its shift.
