Mammoet launches emissions monitoring system

Utrecht-based Mammoet announced the launching of DAISY, a system that transmits emissions data over mobile networks from local devices attached to the embedded systems of cranes and heavy haulers.

The goal is to allow users to report emissions data from heavy lifting equipment in real-time.

According to the company, so far, project planners looking to meet strict regulations have needed to rely on estimates of total emissions, drawn from the model of equipment involved and how long they have been used. The new technology, on the other hand, increases the accuracy of this reporting by using data taken directly from the embedded electronics of on-site equipment. 

This allows organizations working at locations where emissions are regulated tightly, such as inner cities or tunnels, to minimize emissions at the project site.

Mammoet says that analysis of the data is expected to uncover new ways to cut down emissions-driving activities, for example, by reducing idling time during projects. 

The system is currently in use in the Netherlands, monitoring the carbon emissions of a fleet of mobile cranes. However, it is planned for rollout across different projects in 2023.  

“DAISY will be the most advanced system to accurately report CO2, NOx and NH3 emissions at equipment level at the operating location, improving on the generic approach the industry is currently using,” Jacques Stoof, head of innovation at Mammoet, said. “Based on the actual reported emissions, clients will be given the option to choose for a more sustainable, less emitting fuel type in order to minimize their emissions footprint during construction.”
