Problem addressed

The world is facing an urgent need for both urbanisation and decarbonisation. Heavy industries such as construction, largely powered by diesel, account for a large proportion of carbon emissions. The construction industry is lagging behind in technology, productivity, and sustainability with the race to electrification and renewable energy.

Solution overview

Available in various configurations, the Ampd Enertainer is designed for the tough, dynamic, and space constrained needs of construction sites. The Ampd Enertainer battery system has high power outputs, capable of meeting the most demanding of loads. This enables the use of zero or low carbon energy sources resulting in no direct “tailpipe” emissions and none of the harmful CO, CO2, NOx, PM or SO2 emissions of a diesel generator. The Enertainer can be used in areas with poor ventilation and is nearly 32 times quieter than a diesel generator reducing noise pollution in the local community. The Enertainer can replace most large diesel generators and be installed and ready for operation in under 2 hours.

The Ampd can either be supplied by on-site renewables, or trickle charged from the grid during times when the electricity is cleanest and cheapest. This also prevents large amounts of power being drawn in one go from electricity grids.

Internet connectivity enables remote monitoring, device management, remote troubleshooting, and data analytics for the users to understand site operations from anywhere, anytime. Furthermore, automatic recharging, few maintenance requirements, and a modular design means almost no downtime for site operations.

The Enertainer comes in three model sizes, and all have an expected lifetime of 10+ years.

Case study

Multi-welfare Services Complex

Four Enertainers Model “L” was used to power four 64-tonne tower cranes at a Modular Integrated Construction site in Kwu Tung, Hong Kong. Kwu Tung is a rural area with limited power supply, so the Enertainer solved this problem. By using the Enertainers, the project was able to save HKD854,000/year on diesel fuel cost and 495,865 kg annual carbon reduction with a 61% CO2 reduction. Furthermore, there was zero on-site air pollution resulting in better conditions for workers.
