How about electric excavators?

How about electric excavators?

Lukas Häusler works as a project manager in trail construction at Allegra.

Currently, we are already building the trails as ecologically as possible and are adhering to standards that surpass the mandatory ecological requirements of environmental construction permits. The trails are designed and built with an emphasis on attractiveness, thus channeling users on these and preventing the creation of desire lines, which cause uncontrollable erosion and the loss of vegetation. We handle the removed vegetation layer carefully and place it on the new slopes in a direct relocation process. There they can grow back and prevent erosion.

This means that with our current level and knowledge, we almost cannot make our construction method more ecological. But of course, the construction machines always cause exhaust gases during trail construction.

With electric machines, at least these direct emissions could be prevented. However, the current electric machines are not (yet) practical for us. Only small excavators up to two tons with electric drive are available at the moment. To make matters worse, the sites where they are used are usually too far away from the nearest charging station.

Currently, we are trying to build as ecologically, carefully and durably as possible. However, the construction of a trail always remains an intervention in nature. Our goal is to do this as gently as possible. Do you have any ideas on how we can do this even better?
