New Mammoet technology, Innovation gives customers clear, accurate audit trail for emissions regulations
Mammoet has developed a new technology platform that reports emissions data from heavy lifting equipment in real time. The system allows customers to accurately predict and monitor carbon output arising from large heavy lifting and transport projects, the company revealed in a press communique.
Project planners looking to meet increasingly strict emissions regulations have needed to rely on estimates of total emissions, drawn from the make and model of equipment involved and how long they have been used. Mammoet’s new technology increases the accuracy of this reporting by using data taken directly from the embedded electronics of on-site equipment.
The system, codenamed DAISY, transmits this data over mobile networks from local devices attached to the embedded systems of cranes and SPMT (Self-Propelled Modular Transporter) combinations. This can then be accessed from any worldwide location, providing a clear audit trail for governments and other authorities.
The system is currently in use in the Netherlands, monitoring the carbon emissions of a fleet of mobile cranes. It is planned for rollout across Mammoet projects according to customer demand during 2023.
“Based on the actual reported emissions, clients will be given the option to choose for a more sustainable, less emitting fuel type in order to minimize their emissions footprint during construction,” affirmed Jacques Stoof, Head of Innovation, Mammoet.
“With this significant step we can assist clients and empower our own reduction ambitions. DAISY’s factual emissions data allows us to take smarter decisions, reducing our footprint in a more efficient manner. This helps our clients and ensures we achieve our sustainability goals towards 2030,” asserted Mathias Hoogstra, Head of Sustainability, Mammoet.
