Turner Construction Company to Pilot Volvo EC230 Electric Excavator Part of Program to Reduce Emissions

One of the largest construction services companies in the world is testing one of the largest battery-electric machines in the world.

Turner Construction Company is conducting a pilot of the 23-ton EC230 Electric excavator from Volvo Construction Equipment on a project in the heart of Silicon Valley. The EC230 Electric is the first medium-size in-house-designed electric excavator in the industry.

“Turner is a great organization for us to partner with to test the capabilities and benefits of a zero-emission machine that is a major advancement in bringing sustainability solutions to our industry,” said Scott Young, acting president of Region North America, Volvo CE. “Both of our companies are industry leaders pushing innovation to build a cleaner world.”

Said Evan Walker, Turner Construction Company project executive: “We’re really excited to provide operator feedback to equipment manufacturers and help support the low-emission equipment market. This is definitely in alignment with our company values to create a healthy, prosperous and sustainable future for people and the planet.”

The Volvo EC230 Electric excavator is being used by Turner Construction Company on a light manufacturing reconfiguration project for Applied Materials in the Silicon Valley region of Northern California. The excavator will play a key role in the placement of deep utilities, backfilling, building pad excavation, compaction and material movement on site. The project will be completed by October 2024.
