Conexpo: Volvo CE ‘to drive construction into the future’

Displaying solutions for today and tomorrow, Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) will present its wide range of products and services across 5,574 sq m of show space. More than 30 machines and related uptime and productivity services will be featured, including a number of global and regional launches.

Melker Jernberg, president of Volvo CE said, “Our presence at Conexpo is set to be our best yet – with a fully immersive technology experience to highlight the changing face of construction. Innovation has long been a part of our DNA, and we are especially proud to be bringing it to the mainstream with the unveiling some game-changing launches at this year’s show.”

At the compact end of the spectrum, visitors can get hands on experience operating Volvo CE’s electric compact machines, the L25H loader and ECR25 excavator. The biggest iron in the booth will be on prominent display with the heavy-duty EC950F crawler excavator, Volvo CE’s largest excavator which is now available globally, and the powerful R100E rigid hauler – both offering strength and stability for quarrying, mining and mass excavation. 

Volvo’s full force of excavators will be front centre in the booth, including the new EC300E Hybrid excavator, featuring the hydraulic hybrid Volvo technology. In road machinery, Volvo will debut the P5110B tracked and P5170B wheeled pavers, which benefit from simple controls and proven technology. 

Volvo CE will also reveal two new concept models at Conexpo 2020, which herald where the company is taking connected, electric, and autonomous machines. 

Moreover, visitors can also get familiar with Volvo Assist technologies, now standard on many products, with hands-on demonstrations to show how the machine control software gives operators greater accuracy and time savings. An extensive display of over 30 attachments, from buckets to couplers to forks and breakers, will be fitted on equipment across the Volvo booth, showcasing versatility and performance.  

At Conexpo, Volvo CE will be joined by its sister companies: Volvo PentaVolvo Trucks and Volvo Financial Services. Likewise, Volvo CE’s other equipment brands Terex Trucks and SDLG will be present at the show. 

Giving back

Construction fans can also give something back in advance of the show by helping Volvo CE pick a worthy cause to benefit from the auction of the limited edition EC200E Volvo excavator. By taking part in an online poll, participants can choose which non-profit will receive proceeds from the machine’s sale at the Ritchie Bros. auction in Orlando, Florida, in February 2020.

The EC200E excavator, which will make its final public appearance at the Volvo CE Conexpo booth, has been touring North America over the past six months to celebrate the 10th season of Gold Rush, a TV series focusing on the challenges facing teams of miners digging for gold in the US and Canada.
