First sight of Zoomlion ZTC250N-EV

By Christian Shelton15 March 2021

Chinese crane manufacturer Zoomlion has released a preview video of its 25 tonne capacity ZTC250N-EV fully battery-electric truck crane that’s packed with cutting edge technology.

The manufacturer claims it can be 80 percent charged from flat in just one hour and that the crane functions can be used while charging, assuming availability of sufficient site power. The crane’s superstructure batteries double as counterweight.

Automation features heavily – offering control of the outriggers, crane setup, plus lifting and rotation in accordance with preset lifting plans. Automation even extends to driverless movement of the carrier along a predefined route. Lifting plans can be imported from a cloud and a 3D generation of lift plans can be viewed.

A laser-scanning system is promoted for obstacle avoidance, while an object recognition function allows it to lock and track target objects being hoisted. Real time monitoring is provided by onboard cameras and the crane has anti-sway control.

Zoomlion says that, fully charged, the carrier has a range of 230 km and on-the-road electricity consumption is 150 kWh per 100 km. The crane has up to 1,500 Nm of torque which Zoomlion says means it can tackle slopes of 50 percent gradient.

Data reports and associated apps complete the crane’s features on first sight of this tech-laden truck crane.
