The industrial landscape is changing rapidly because the requirements for safety and efficiency are constantly increasing. In recent years, the issues of the environmental protection and nature conservation – and thus also the question of regenerative energy sources – have become particularly important. STREICHER also holds the objective to reduce CO2- emissions in the future in order to counteract climate change. Time and time again it has been discerned that the solutions customary on the market can no longer meet these stated goals and, accordingly, neither the requirements of the new era. STREICHER has made it a primary objective to close the gap with the construction of products that are driven electrically, with hydrogen by e.g. a fuel cell, among others. The many years of practical experience and the multilayered competences within the company group are providing support in integrating the new technologies into related modifications and new developments.
These efforts are summarised under a separate, appropriate label called ecotec. In line with the goal of decarbonisation, the ecotec label combines innovative technologies with future-focused trends and essentially combines the issues of resource conservation, environment protection, energy efficiency and optimisation of the entire energy cycle – which helps to significantly reduce the ecological footprint.
STREICHER has already brought the first products with the ecotec label to marketability. Since the beginning of 2021, new electric welding tractors and HDD rigs have been successfully used in various projects. Moreover, we want to meet this goal by offering retrofit services.
