Volvo Trucks and Cemex collaborate on electric concrete mixer truck

By Catrin Jones13 February 2023

Cemex has announced that Volvo Trucks has supplied the company with the world’s first fully electric and zero-emission heavy concrete mixer truck at a joint event hosted in Berlin, Germany.

The truck is part of an agreement signed between the companies in 2021 to improve productivity and carbon emissions reductions through the implementation of electromobility solutions on mobile construction equipment and trucks, productivity solutions, and uptime services.

Volvo and CEMEX are working to discover, pilot, and scale the technologies needed to make emissions-free transport also a reality in the construction industry.

The company says that the Volvo FMX electric truck can be used for a full day’s work with a single top-up charge. It will be operating at the Berlin Spandau ready-mix plant in Berlin, starting this month. 

“We are very happy to take this important step in the partnership with Cemex. Both our companies have committed to ambitious sustainability targets and collaboration is the way to get there.

“Together we will work to implement CO2-neutral transport in the construction industry. Our electric trucks are zero emissions and their silent operation also provides a better environment for people working at construction sites, as well as for residents living in the city,” said Roger Alm, President of Volvo Trucks.
