Normet SmartDrive® is a modular battery electric vehicle (BEV) architecture designed to optimize energy consumption and performance in underground mining and tunneling applications. Normet SmartDrive® equipment enable higher productivity, lower operating costs and most importantly – zero local emissions.
The SmartDrive architecture includes the latest Li-ion battery technology with a fast charging capability. High-torque electric motors provide instant torque and efficient operation without any local emissions. The fully reversible 4WD ensures safe and sure movement in difficult underground conditions. There is two different SmartDrive architectures; Mining machines’ redundant BEV architecture is optimized for underground mining use and longer tramming, and tunneling machines’ BEV architecture is optimized for tunnelling and shorter tramming distances.
