The construction industry, a vital force in modern society, has long been associated with noise, emissions, and environmental impact. However, in response to the urgent need for more sustainable and eco-conscious practices, the industry is undergoing a remarkable transformation. Dynapac has risen to the challenge by unveiling the world’s very first electric city paver, an innovation set to redefine construction practices and pave the way for a greener future.
The journey from concept to reality has been an arduous one, with dedicated experts in Dynapac´s product management and engineering. Their vision and dedication have brought the electric city paver to life, revolutionizing the construction industry, and showcasing the power of innovation.
The electric city paver represents a fusion of cutting-edge technology and environmental consciousness. With zero emissions, reduced noise levels, and low running costs, this innovative machine is primed to create a more harmonious coexistence between construction and the surrounding environment. One of the most remarkable aspects of the electric city paver is its impressive runtime – it can operate for up to four hours on a single charge. This incredible endurance is made possible by a state-of-the-art Lithium-ion battery and a powerful 55 kW 3-phase Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor.
Charging infrastructure has been a critical focus of Dynapac’s innovation. The electric city paver can handle both AC and DC charging, with the capacity to charge at speeds of up to 80 to 100 kilowatts. This fast-charging capability is a game-changer for construction sites with tight timelines, ensuring the machine can quickly recharge during breaks or lulls in activity. The electric city paver’s adaptability to various charging scenarios demonstrates its practicality and efficiency on construction sites.
Bringing the electric city paver from concept to reality has been a journey of determination and precision. A two-and-a-half-year effort culminated in a successful customer visit day, where the machine’s functionality and performance were put to the test. The electric city paver proved its worth, demonstrating its ability to cope with real-life construction challenges and confirming its status as a reliable and functional construction tool.

The electric city paver’s first real-world trial took place on an actual construction site of customer Van Gelder, where its charging and performance capabilities were meticulously assessed. It demonstrated its ability to handle charging speeds of up to 80 kilowatts, highlighting its potential for rapid and efficient recharging. Despite minor setbacks, the electric city paver triumphed, completing the day’s tasks and underscoring its potential to transform construction practices worldwide.
Reflecting on the successful trial, Product Manager Joao Prado and his team expressed their pride and satisfaction.
“The electric city paver exceeded our expectations, proving its performance capabilities and environmental benefits. It is the culmination of years of hard work and dedication. Not only for us but also for the construction industry, the electric city paver represents a significant milestone in the journey toward sustainability.”
With its remarkable performance, zero emissions, and ability to tackle real-world challenges, this innovative machine is set to reshape construction practices and lead the charge toward a more sustainable future.
