SUNCAR HK jointly developed with Liebherr the world's first battery-powered drilling rig "LB 16 unplugged". The LB 16 unplugged is the electric version of the LB 16. The LB 16 is a drilling rig, operated by combustion engine and well-established in the Liebherr product portfolio. The new LB 16 unplugged is powered by batteries and as its name tells you: wire-less. There are no restrictions in performance and application of the LB 16 unplugged when compared to the conventional version LB 16. The 55 t electro-hydraulic LB 16 unplugged can be easily operated during a whole working day thanks to its battery run time of 10 hours. The battery can then be fully recharged within seven hours at night. The advantages of the LB 16 unplugged are clear: It does not cause any local emissions and significantly less noise. The electric drilling rig can therefore be used in environments with strict emission regulations as well as in areas sensitive to noise.
