Beam Global, a provider of sustainable mobility solutions, has announced a partnership with Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE), a Volvo subsidiary, to enable a bundle deal on Volvo’s electric equipment and Beam’s solar-powered construction technology.

The dual offering is designed to help construction sites quickly install sustainable charging infrastructure by eliminating the need for electrical work, utility grid connections or fossil fuel generators. Instead, the pair claims, sites can adopt their solar-powered equipment and bypass utility bills.

“The construction industry has the opportunity to future-proof its business against noise, carbon emissions regulations and volatile fossil fuel costs by adopting electric machines,” said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Beam Global.

“By providing our sustainable EV charging systems alongside Volvo’s best-in-class electric machines, we are enabling that transition in the fastest, cleanest and most scalable manner available.

“We’re proud to partner with Volvo CE in electrifying the construction business.”

Volvo CE currently offers five models of electric machines in North America, the L20 and L25 Electric wheel loaders, and the EC18, ECR18 and ECR25 Electric excavators.

According to Beam, the combined technologies produce zero emissions, reduce noise pollution and cut energy costs.

Beam also claims its EV Arc technology is the fastest deployed and cheapest EV charging system on the market, and is easily transportable and simple to install. Its autonomous technology is designed to store electricity without connecting to the grid.

The offer is available through the Volvo dealer network in North America and reportedly comes with a range of pricing options.
