New Mammoet tech offers carbon monitoring
By Hannah Sundermeyer03 January 2023
Mammoet has developed a new technology platform that reports emissions data from heavy lifting equipment in real time.
The system allows customers to accurately predict and monitor carbon output arising from large heavy lifting and transport projects. Mammoet’s new technology increases the accuracy of this reporting by using data taken directly from the embedded electronics of on-site equipment, the company said.
The system, codenamed DAISY, transmits this data over mobile networks from local devices attached to the embedded systems of cranes and SPMT combinations. This can then be accessed from any worldwide location, providing a clear audit trail for governments and other authorities. The system is currently in use in the Netherlands, monitoring the carbon emissions of a fleet of mobile cranes. It is planned for rollout across Mammoet projects according to customer demand during 2023.
“DAISY will be the most advanced system to accurately report CO2, NOx and NH3 emissions at equipment level at the operating location, improving on the generic approach the industry is currently using,” said Jacques Stoof, head of innovation, Mammoet.
