A Terex Optima 55-foot aerial device, powered by the HyPowerTM SmartPTO by Viatec, is now available on an International eMV Series battery electric 33,000 GVW chassis.
“By combining SmartPTO technology with the International electric chassis, Terex Utilities was able to bring this bucket truck solution to the electric utilities two years ahead of industry projections,” said Joe Caywood, director of marketing, in a prepared statement. “We are giving electric utilities a solution now to help meet their electrification and sustainability goals. Many utilities have sustainability goals with 50% electric achievement by 2025 and 100 percent electric by 2030. This solution can accelerate plans for electrification of their fleets.”
The bucket truck has a 60-foot working height and has a 135-mile driving range. Users can operate the bucket for a full workday on a single charge.
“We have been working on green solutions for more than a decade,” said Caywood. “During that time, we have learned what works and what doesn’t. It’s exciting to see these investments come to fruition with an all-electric bucket truck that is robust and designed to meet the specific needs of utility applications.”
Deliveries of the Terex Optima 55 eMV Series begin in June.
