GE Energy launches new AC excavator


GE Energy is introducing a new alternating current (AC) excavator solution which consists of drives, controls and motors designed specifically for challenging surface mine applications and environments.

The AC Excavator Solution is a complete electrical drive solution comprised of a family of AC motors, drives, controls, engineering and field services. Heavy equipment OEMs and earth-moving equipment owners can apply this solution in their draglines, shovels and blast-hole drills. Mining operators look to uptime and cycle time as two measurements that provide the most meaningful indication of lower cost per material tonne moved. The company stated that GE AC excavator solutions, based on an advanced AC drive, control and motor system technology, will help deliver the reliability and productivity necessary to help mining operators meet their goals.

Nimesh Sharan, GE’s senior product manager for motors, said: “Mining owners and operators are migrating to AC systems in general. AC excavator systems are more energy efficient, and because they utilise less mechanical parts, AC systems tend to require less personal care and maintenance.”
