Social Innovation

Digging for a cleaner world

What if construction machinery could be virtually silent and pollution free? Hitachi believes even heavy construction equipment should help benefit society and build towards a low-carbon future. This is why we have developed zero-emission electric excavators.

The diggers run entirely on electric power without sacrificing performance. Rapid charging allows them to be used seamlessly across an 8 hour working day at full power. The excavators also run virtually silently meaning they can be used after hours in residential areas or nearer noise sensitive places like schools or hospitals.

This is just one of many social innovations from Hitachi that are powering good.
