Advancing sustainability in forestry machinery: Electro-Hybrid drives for greenhouse gas reduction and enhanced energy efficiency


This article deals with the possibility of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and fuel consumption in machines using cut-to-length (CTL) technology with the help of electro-hybrid systems. The text discusses the individual components of these systems. Furthermore, the article contains technical solutions for current electro-hybrid drive systems of harvesters, forwarders and forwarding trailers, including their description and available parameters. The current technical and technological development of electro-hybrid drive systems and their components leads to a significant improvement in the performance of drives of the new generation of CTL machines and to higher energy efficiency. Thanks to this, the use of electro-hybrid drive systems in these machines could significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as operating costs.
