BAM Infra Reveals The World's First Fully Electric Road Roller

Let’s roll some roads in an electric road roller.

Dutch company BAM Infra Nederland unveiled and actually put into service the world’s first electric road roller. How cool is that?

A road roller sounds like a perfect application for electrification, although BAM Infra quickly found out that there is no commercial product like that (the construction equipment category is just starting to take off).

They decided to convert an old diesel model and now it’s enjoying a second life.

“BAM Infra Nederland has built and commissioned the world’s first fully electric 10 to 12-tonne road roller. This unique and sustainable piece of equipment was created by BAM’s plant and equipment department, on the basis of an older model which was due for an overhaul. The conversion took place over a period of one and a half year. This week the emission-free road roller was put to work on its first project, in the city of Almere. Other projects will follow soon.”
