Safety, electrification, and connectivity for a sustainable future.
Vilvoorde January 2024 — Komatsu, a global leader in the manufacturing of construction, mining, and forestry equipment, is delighted to announce its participation to Intermat 2024, the trade fair for construction machinery and construction technology scheduled to take place in Paris from April 24 to 27.
“After six long years, and the cancellation of the 2021 edition due to the pandemic, we are happy for this great opportunity to reconnect with customers from all over the world at Intermat” says Naser Memic Rendon, Deputy General Manager Marketing & Communication at Komatsu. “This fair in Paris promises to be an extraordinary event, providing Komatsu with a platform to showcase our latest equipment and customer solutions designed for a future-oriented, decarbonised workplace. It also reaffirms Komatsu Europe's unwavering commitment to the French, European, and African markets.”
Occupying a prominent space in Hall 5b, Komatsu's indoor stand will showcase nearly 30 machines, and will highlight cutting-edge technologies and top services with a focus on digitalization and electrification. A special place will be made for the recently launched PW168-11 and PW198-11 wheeled excavators and a Virtual Stand will offer a glimpse into the near future, providing a sneak peek at upcoming innovations.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to explore Komatsu excavators equipped with the Smart Construction 3D Machine Guidance kit, a simple technological enhancement allowing for productivity gain across an extensive variety of crawlers and wheeled excavators.
A dedicated team of Komatsu product managers will be on hand to provide comprehensive information and personalised assistance about the company's high-tech product support and services.
In response to the global imperative to mitigate climate change, Komatsu is actively collaborating with customers to establish safe, highly productive, smart, and clean workplaces for the future. The development and the launch of Komatsu electric equipment is a main part of our drive to achieve carbon neutrality. Komatsu’s journey toward electrification in construction machinery began in 2008 with the introduction of the world's first hybrid construction machine—a hybrid hydraulic excavator. Since then, Komatsu continues to expand its lineup of hybrid and electric equipment, ranging from small to larger hydraulic excavators.
At Intermat 2024, Komatsu will unveil brand- new electric excavators, including the 210LCE-11 in the 20- tonne range, the PC138E-11 with its reduced rear end radius, and the groundbreaking PC33E-6 in a world premiere cabin version—all equipped with lithium-ion batteries.
