Danfoss Power Solutions has secured a £407,112 government grant to accelerate the electrification of construction machinery through the Red Diesel Replacement competition.

Danfoss said it will significantly improve machine efficiency by combining electrification with its Digital Displacement technology. Reducing energy consumption by as much as 50 per cent, the technology can decrease the size of batteries needed to power machines and the amount of energy needed to charge them.

A £25m manufacturing, research, and development facility in Edinburgh is being constructed for Danfoss to commercialise Digital Displacement technology and Editron electric drivetrains, which it believes will transform the construction machinery sector. Dubbed the Decarbonisation Hub, the facility will become operational next year.
