Electric Vehicle Packages

Leading industry in electrification with world-first innovation

Advanced Battery Technology

With a growing and immediate industry demand for low emissions technology, we sought to design a solution to reduce diesel emissions in underground applications, supporting fewer ventilation requirements and reducing noise.  

DRIFTEX, is the world’s first IECEx Group I certified electric vehicle, using an Intrinsically Safe traction battery.

While not needing proprietary charge equipment, we have collaborated with Tritium and Danfoss to deliver customers both surface and underground charging solutions.

We are all about helping you achieve your decarbonisation and electrification goals; with our battery-electric vehicle package, you're site can move forward in alignment with net zero milestones, improving social licence and improving site health conditions with the removal of diesel particulates.
