What’s New in Issue 60
Featuring Volvo Construction Equipment’s research into electrification and autonomous machines, this issue visits the company’s test ground in Eskilstuna, Sweden, where its driverless wheel loader and cab-less hauler are put through their paces. This was also the location for the Exploration Forum, bringing together Volvo CE key account customers face-to-face with new solutions to the problems they may be facing. Elsewhere in the magazine, there is a stunning photo shoot from Canada featuring Volvo articulated haulers carrying equipment and supplies over an ancient glacier. In the Netherlands, the focus is on the first Volvo EC480EHR ultra-high-reach demolition machine to be operating in the country, while in the UK there is nothing but praise for Volvo machines from a demolition team based in the north-east of England. Among the articles from around the world, is one about a family-run construction company that successfully bid for a major contract in Charleston, South Carolina with the help of Volvo CE’s site-simulation software. Interviews with customers show them to be consistent in their praise for the fuel efficient, technologically advanced and increasingly safe machines that Volvo CE provides, as well as appreciative of Volvo CE’s continuous environmental consciousness.
