WAE Technologies is attending The Electric Mine 2023, showcasing state-of-the-art electrification solutions, which are supporting the acceleration of the off-highway sector in its journey to decarbonisation.  

Held in Arizona from 23-25 May, The Electric Mine is the world’s only global mine electrification event and WAE will be using the expo to show its leading electrification technology, which has been specifically developed for the use cases of mining and other off-highway applications.

Following its acquisition by Fortescue Metals Group at the start of 2022, WAE - a leader in high performance battery technology developed originally for global motorsport and road car programmes - is becoming a leading supplier to the off-highway sector, using its expertise to support Fortescue in its transition to a global green renewables and resources company through the decarbonisation of its worldwide vehicle fleet.

In June 2022, Fortescue announced a partnership with Liebherr, who will be using their T264 mining haul truck to integrate zero emission power system technologies – developed by WAE Technologies.

WAE’s line-up at The Electric Mine 2023 will include a DC-DC Converter, featuring a ruggedised design developed for off-highway vehicle applications. WAE’s DC-DC Converter is a 600kW 1.5kV - 1kV stepdown converter for high power loads. Its Silicon Carbide (SiC) technology delivers exceptional efficiency of 98.5%, while full power operation takes place at ambient temperature of 50oC.
In addition to the electrification innovation on display, WAE’s Head of Technology, Dave Rawlings, will be giving a presentation entitled “From Racetrack to Remote – Racing to Save the Planet”.

During this presentation Dave will provide an overview of how electrification of off highway projects is being approached by WAE; a company born from motorsport and recently acquired by Fortescue, a global leader in green energy and technology. It will describe the major barriers and potential benefits to off-highway EV adoption, while Dave will also provide insights into the unique vehicle characteristics and infrastructure needs for off-grid and remote environments.

Dave Rawlins, Head of Technology, WAE said “Technologies has been at the apex of the development of high-performance battery and electrification systems for more than two decades. As part of the Fortescue family, our state-of-the-art technology is increasingly being applied to the off-highway sector, supporting the business as it transitions to a clean, green global fleet. Our technology has the potential to accelerate the decarbonisation of any off-highway vehicle - and we are delighted to be showcasing these at The Electric Mine 2022.”
