Burtec Electrified Core Drilling Rigs

Meeting the demand for sustainable machinery

With a rapidly growing demand for sustainable machinery in the infra industry, Burtec focusses on significant innovation in close cooperation with Intercel. Rob Doorman, Managing Director of Burtec emphasizes the importance of true partnership: “Our electric core drilling rigs and bitumen sprayers play an essential part in our range of machinery. Our aim is to help clients move away from diesel as quickly as possible and that’s exactly what we achieved with Intercel. For us, innovation comes with the prerequisite that it always has to be a major step forward. That means significant benefits on all fronts: zero emissions, safe, low noise, and easy to use.”

The challenge

“Sustainability and net-zero emissions are important to our clients in order to bid successfully in certain tenders. But environmentally-friendly material choices matter to: from drive systems to the varnishes and the materials we use for the bodywork. Now projects within the EU increasingly have to be fully net-zero, our electrified range of machinery becomes even more important. The prerequisites are net-zero emissions, safe, sustainable, CE standards, and TÜV tested.”

It’s a wonderful feeling when you can learn together without barriers!

Close collaboration

Rob is quite clear on the cooperation with Intercel: “For clients it is important that we work with a Dutch player who is accessible and who provides services. That is why we were determined in our choice of Intercel. They are the right partner, with the right products and the right advice. Their customising concept is tremendous. They consider the issues, deliver the right performance and take account of special requirements. In the case of the core drilling rig, this are the heavy vibrations that are released. Intercel’s customised batteries are designed to withstand that. Intercel and Burtec are a great team based in the Netherlands.”

Rob Doorman: “The electrification is achieved with a customised lithium battery. The lithium battery has a massive capacity and the client can charge it anywhere. The battery is fully charged within 2.5 hours. The noise level is reduced drastically and that’s great for the user as well as the immediate surroundings. It complies with strict European standards, a point that is really important to those clients who often acquire projects through tenders. It really is a total solution: from battery to transformer and from charger to cabling. Intercel is our dream partner, because we can really discuss anything. We look forward to the future together and consider how we can improve and innovate further. It’s a wonderful feeling when you can learn together without barriers.”
