A com­plete suc­cess: bau­ma 2022

By 8. November 2022 No Comments

As the world’s lead­ing trade show for con­struc­tion machin­ery, build­ing mate­r­i­al machines, min­ing machines, con­struc­tion vehi­cles and con­struc­tion equip­ment, bau­ma 2022 once again reached many peo­ple. With more than 495,000 vis­i­tors from over 200 coun­tries and 3,200 exhibitors from around 60 coun­tries, the trade show exceed­ed all expec­ta­tions and was a com­plete suc­cess again this year.

This year, bau­ma was all about sus­tain­abil­i­ty. With over 90 years of expe­ri­ence, inge­nu­ity and inspi­ra­tion, Perkins and BU Pow­er Sys­tems are com­mit­ted to solu­tions that enable a cli­mate-friend­ly CO₂-reduced future. Stage V com­pli­ant engines, biodiesel and alter­na­tive pow­er­trains are already help­ing to shape a sus­tain­able future. With high-qual­i­ty and durable spare parts and com­po­nents, a long engine life can be achieved and resources can be con­served. Opti­mal ser­vice from a part­ner at eye lev­el pro­vides a good basis for this.

Lose car­bon. Not power.

“With our inno­va­tions and solu­tions, we want to offer orig­i­nal equip­ment man­u­fac­tur­ers (OEMs) the oppor­tu­ni­ty to reduce green­house gas­es while still main­tain­ing or even increas­ing per­for­mance and effi­cien­cy,” says Peter Wag­n­er, Gen­er­al Sales Man­ag­er at BU Pow­er Sys­tems. “In doing so, Perkins and BU Pow­er Sys­tems address an increas­ing­ly wide range of sus­tain­able propul­sion solu­tions. In addi­tion, the use of alter­na­tive fuels such as biodiesel and low­er car­bon fuels can make a con­tri­bu­tion. There is no uni­ver­sal solu­tion here. In prac­tice, it is nec­es­sary to look at how sus­tain­able solu­tions can be inte­grat­ed for each indi­vid­ual cus­tomer. For machines in the field, increased effi­cien­cy can be achieved by over­haul­ing or replac­ing spare parts in addi­tion to replac­ing an engine. Perkins is strate­gi­cal­ly well posi­tioned to fur­ther sup­port OEMs in the ener­gy tran­si­tion. As an expert, we are look­ing for­ward to the dia­logue with our cus­tomers in order to devel­op prac­ti­ca­ble solu­tions together.“

In addi­tion to the exist­ing hybrid-elec­tric, hybrid-mechan­i­cal and hybrid-hydraulic pro­grammes, Perkins engi­neers are cur­rent­ly devel­op­ing and test­ing 48-volt, 300-volt and 600-volt bat­tery con­fig­u­ra­tions for use in con­struc­tion, indus­tri­al, mate­ri­als han­dling and agri­cul­tur­al appli­ca­tions. The lithi­um-ion bat­ter­ies fea­ture a robust, mod­u­lar design and fac­to­ry-installed telem­at­ics to opti­mise per­for­mance and appli­ca­tion in off-high­way appli­ca­tions. They are also being designed for recy­cling and reuse at the end of life to incor­po­rate sus­tain­abil­i­ty across their entire life cycle.

In addi­tion, Perkins offers a pow­er­ful and grow­ing port­fo­lio of con­nec­tiv­i­ty solu­tions that can help OEMs pro­mote opti­mal, sus­tain­able diesel engine per­for­mance. Avail­able as a sep­a­rate Perkins ser­vice or eas­i­ly inte­grat­ed into OEM fleet man­age­ment offer­ings, the con­nect­ed engines pro­vide real-time insights into per­for­mance, fuel and oil con­sump­tion, and oth­er key engine data via a cus­tomis­able dash­board that can max­imise the uptime of Perkins-pow­ered machines and fleets.

These con­nec­tiv­i­ty offer­ings are seam­less­ly inte­grat­ed with the expert main­te­nance and ser­vices offered by the glob­al Perkins deal­er net­work to proac­tive­ly diag­nose and resolve engine issues, help­ing tech­ni­cians get the job done right the first time to min­imise down­time and repair costs.
