Riwal and Skoon – The solution for clean electric machines on the emission-free construction site

Dordrecht, November 30, 2022 – Riwal Aerial Work Platforms, a rental and sales specialist for aerial work platforms and scissor lifts, and Skoon, the online marketplace for clean and mobile energy, have entered into a collaboration for the supply of clean mobile energy on site.

On a construction site, there is often insufficient power to charge all electric machines and use them optimally. The enormous growth in sustainable electric equipment makes this challenge even greater. For Riwal and Skoon, this provides the perfect basis for a collaboration.

Electric machines bring a number of challenges with them. The construction sites on which the aerial work platforms are used are often far from the necessary network connections, making it impossible to charge the built-in batteries. In addition, it is also often the case that aerial work platforms are the first machines on a construction project, so there is no other infrastructure available. For projects where infrastructure is available, charging many machines at the same time causes an overload of the electricity grid.

Skoon offers a solution by delivering a tailor-made mobile energy solution on site. Think of battery trailers (up to 150 kWh / 90 kVA), optionally with built-in solar panels and backup generators. All batteries supplied are charged with green electricity where possible and therefore have almost no CO2 and nitrogen emissions.

In addition to these sustainable benefits, these renewable-powered energy systems mean that diesel machines are needed less and less. This also offers a solution so that diesel machines are no longer needed. Due to current geopolitical changes, diesel is becoming more expensive at a rapid pace, making electric machines not only more sustainable and healthier but often even cheaper.

Quote Peter Paul van Voorst

(Founder / CEO Skoon Energy B.V.)

“With this collaboration, we are improving the availability of clean mobile energy on a large scale. By making it easier for end users to choose clean energy systems based on data, this becomes more accessible to more people. Thanks to Riwal’s size, Skoon’s software tools and the integration of our software platforms, we are reaching the moment where clean energy is always available faster. This way we work together on data-driven connections between Riwal’s thousands of machines and the hundreds of clean energy systems on Skoon’s online platform. “

Quote Glenn Verburg

(Managing Director Riwal Aerial Work Platforms B.V.)

“With this, we are making another important step in our sustainability strategy in which the focus is on investments in hybrid and electric machines. In combination with Skoon, we can now offer our customers a complete package of clean and efficient machines, including the necessary energy supply. We are proud to be able to contribute to a cleaner construction site and a healthier working environment. “
