威猛（Vermeer） says the acquisition is a key part of its strategy to meet growing demand for electric-powered solutions.
诺玛格’的技术使用集成的电力系统“在运营期间优化发电机组，钻机和流体管理系统的效率，” says 威猛（Vermeer）. In addition, the systems match standard international shipping container dimensions, reducing the machine footprint, jobsite set-up time, complexity and cost, according to the company.
“With this 科技nology already proven in operations across Europe, our 威猛（Vermeer） team can now fast-track an 电动硬盘 offering that helps operators better control their cost of operations and worksite impacts through reduced fuel use, near-zero emissions, limited noise and an overall smaller rig footprint,” says Jason Andringa, 威猛（Vermeer） president and CEO.
Under development for more than eight years, these systems were purpose-built by Netherlands-based 诺玛格 to help companies comply with European transportation and worksite regulations and meet environmental goals. Drill rig and fluid packages have been field tested with customers across Europe for the past several years.
Because they are European-market ready and tested, 威猛（Vermeer） says it will first introduce the electric drills and systems to the European large-diameter underground infrastructure market. The company anticipates a North American and Australian introduction within the next 24 to 36 months.
威猛（Vermeer）’s EMEA headquarters in Goes, Netherlands, will head up all future product development, engineering, marketing and production, expected by late 2021 for the European market. First off the assembly like will likely be a 120-metric-ton 硬碟 rig, a 2,500-liter reclaimer and high-pressure pump. 威猛（Vermeer） also plans to establish a range of 750-to-3,000-liters-per-minute reclaimers.
These products will be sold under the 威猛（Vermeer） brand in partnership with 威猛（Vermeer） dealers.
