Volvo Penta partner with Fantuzzi...

Volvo Penta and cargo handling and equipment manufacturer Fantuzzi Team Material Handling (FTMH) have expanded their partnership to include electric forklifts. Global experts in Material Handling Solutions, Volvo Penta and Fantuzzi have partnered so that you may work profitably, safely, reliably and with precision. Working closely with the Italian cargo handling and equipment manufacturer this partnership is a modular electric systems triumph for both Volvo Penta and FTMH and a further example of the Volvo Group's full system supplier approach in unlocking future application opportunities.

With focus on material handling segment applications, this partnership will see a full range of e-forklifts, up to 52-tonnes, developed. The 26-tonne capacity FTF 26-12, which currently relies on a Volvo Penta D8 engine, will be the first to be electrified as the FTF 26-12 EL. The 600V electric drive train will be powered by a Volvo Penta battery system with an installed capacity of 360 kWh. To ensure the machine secures maximum uptime, it will be compatible with high-power charging, at rates of up to 250 kW DC. This allows for a full charge to be delivered in just over an hour, while maximizing the potential for opportunity charging during any pauses in operation.

Volvo Group Proven Technology

Volvo Penta has a growing foothold as an electromobility full systems supplier and is making strong progress on its journey to net zero. The company’s solution comprises heavy-duty components developed and proven by other businesses within the Volvo Group, optimally packaged and installed to suit the needs of individual off-highway OEMs as a result of the vast knowledge and experience of Volvo Penta. To learn more about how Volvo Penta and Fantuzzi Team Material Handling have expanded their partnership to include electric forklifts please navigate to and search Volvo Penta Fantuzzi Team Material Handling (FTMH) partnership or follow the website link below.
