The world’s largest materials handler, a Sennebogen 895 E-Series Hybrid, has been delivered to Danubia Speicherei Ges.m.H. in Ennshafen in Austria.
The Sennebogen 895 E Hybrid has a total weight of up to 420t and a reach of up to 40m. It was first presented in the spring of 2019 at the Bauma trade fair in Munich. The machine will go into service at Danubia Speicherei’s storage facility in Enns, which handles 950,000 tpa.
According to Sennebogen, its proven ‘Green Hybrid’ energy recovery system makes saves up to 55% of energy. “The energy storage system works similar to a compressed spring,” the crane maker explained.
“The difference is that here gas is compressed in separate compressed gas cylinders and thus energy is stored which is available for the next stroke. The subsequent stroke movement is again comparable to releasing the spring. During this process, the previously generated energy is released again.”
The machine in XXL format with its portal undercarriage was individually adapted to the track width at Danubia. The transport of the individual parts was claimed to be a “logistical masterpiece”.
It took a total of 18 truckloads, including seven heavy load trucks, to deliver all the parts. Teams from ASCENDUM, Sennebogen and Danubia Speicherei worked closely together during the 14-day on-site assembly.
Claimed to be the biggest hydraulic material handler in the world, Sennebogen said the 895 E Hybrid offers impressive handling power when moving scrap and coal, while the double Green Hybrid system enhances efficiency when in operation.
