CASE Construction Equipment unveiled its methane-powered wheel loader concept – ProjectTETRA. Jointly developed by the CNH Industrial international design and CASE engineering teams, this concept is a clear departure from anything seen to date in the construction industry. The concept reflects both the increasing importance of alternative fuels, and demonstrates their viability in the construction environment: the concept wheel loader is powered by a proven methane engine, produced by sister brand FPT Industrial, and delivers exactly the same performance as its diesel equivalent. This is combined with cutting edge styling and an advanced operator environment, which makes extensive use of touchscreen and voice control technologies. Furthermore, innovative safety features include biometric technologies together with an obstacle detection system, which is derived from CNH Industrial’s autonomous vehicle research and development program.

According to Torsten Gerlach, CEO of Business Unit Mining Technologies, thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions AG, Germany, “We are very satisfied with bauma 2019. For us as a global player in the minerals and mining industry, bauma creates a unique, one-week opportunity to meet customers from all parts of the world, present new products and services to them and discuss the latest trends.
