Chinese construction machinery manufacturer Zoomlion has developed one of the world’s first fully electric-powered truck crane.
The first ZTC250N-EV rolled off the production line at Zoomlion’s Quantang Industrial Park in Changsha in early May.
Zoomlion Technical Director of Engineering Cranes Wang Qitao said the company partnered with the world’s leading suppliers for green energy parts and tailored to the usage scenarios and working conditions of truck cranes.
“We equipped the truck crane with high energy storage density LFP battery, which is the safest in the world,” he said.
“The bodywork and chassis applied a ZIC intelligent collaborative control strategy, which perfectly combines the TCEMS high-efficiency energy management system and a BMS battery management system.”

The 23t truck crane can reach to a maximum speed of 90 kilometres per hour and the maximum gradeability reaches 50 per cent.
Its comprehensive energy cost can be reduced to 35 per cent of other fuel-powered products in the same class with zero emissions.
The sound of the vehicle during driving and operating is no higher than 65 decibels. The intelligent control system equipped also allows high-precise control for the vehicle.
“We had set up a specialised team in 2018, consisting of staff from research, engineering, manufacturing and quality control departments, and completed the production of the truck crane within two years,” Wang said.
