Atlas Copco outlines its future
By Joe Malone14 March 2018
Atlas Copco is aiming for reduced carbon and noise emissions with its newest product offerings, the company said at its latest press conference in London, UK.
After recently launching new air compressor, electrical generator, dewatering pump and lighting tower models, the company said its latest technologies would provide end users with more efficient operation and lower cost of ownership.
Mega-trends, such as digitalisation and the construction of smart cities, is a focus for the manufacturer, which serves the construction, equipment rental and other industries.
New products launched included its new QAS 35 VSG Variable Speed generator, HiLight B5+ lighting tower, along with additions to its PAS and WEDA+ dewatering pump ranges.
Speaking at the event, Peter Lauwers, president for Portable Air, said the company was aiming to “triple its revenues from non-polluting drive technology by 2022” and said its main market for this would be Europe.
Meanwhile, the company’s president of its Speciality Rental division, Ray Löfgren, said its equipment rental fleet was made up of around 20% electrically-powered units, but the aim was to reach 25% by 2020.
Atlas Copco made significant changes to its company last year, rebranding its formerly-known Construction Technique area to Power Technique, which focuses solely on power, air and flow.
