ACCIONA bringing Australia’s first fully electric piling rig to NELP

RA member ACCIONA will have the first fully electric piling rig to operate in Australia when it brings the Liebherr LB 30 ‘Unplugged’ to the North East Link Program (NELP) – Northern Package in October this year.

ACCIONA’s ground engineering business, Geotech, signed an order to purchase a Liebherr LB 30 ‘Unplugged’ piling rig in December 2022. The new rig will produce zero emissions through its ability to operate under full battery power (i.e. unplugged) or connected to a conventional electric supply while operating.

ACCIONA Geotech’s General Manager Nick Karapetsas said:

“We’re very conscious of the impact large construction equipment has on the environment. We want to be at the forefront of improving the industry by using the latest technology to drive a zero-emissions culture.”

“As an early adopter of fully electric technology, we want to explore further opportunities in this space, and the best way to do this is by acting, which we have done by purchasing the LB 30 Unplugged.”
