The Key Challenges Preventing NRMMIndustry from Switching to Alternative Fuels
Chris completed his degree in Materials Science and Engineering before joining BAE Systems. Moving on as Technical Manager and subsequently, General Manager, in a precision forgings manufacturer for the medical. aerospace, defense, and commercial markets, a shift into manufacturing consultancy followed.
Joining PA Consulting Group in 2006 afforded Chris the rare opportunity to experience a range of manufacturing settings and drive real improvements within them. Although Chris’s interest in innovation was already sparked, moving to PERA in 2012 cemented his commitment to improvement and positive change through manufacturing processes and strategy.
In 2014, Chris joined Timberwolf UK as Managing Director and, through his leadership, has committed to improving sustainability and the impact of the business and its products in the community and market.
Acquired by the Alamo Group in 2020, Timberwolf UK will see the launch of a hybrid wood chipper – Chris’s journey to remove emissions from the industry has truly begun.

Sustainability in the off-highway industry – non-road mobile machine electrification case study
Technology related to NRMM electrification has been research topic in science for a long time. Companies have been developing proof of concepts and prototypes. Today many OEMs are moving towards electrification in serial produced machines. Technology has to bring clear benefits in operator experience, CO2 reduction, productivity, safety and total cost of ownership for customers. This case study includes simulation based technology development of 200 kW power class hybrid-electric Non-Road Mobile Machine NRMM considering sustainability on supply chain, manufacturing and lifetime operations.

Battery approaches to electrification
As the NRMM market contains many different types of machines in different environments with a wide range of energy and power requirements, there is no one size fits all approach to making the industry greener.
Different market segments require different solutions today and tomorrow and as such four existing battery approaches to eliminating or reducing emissions will be presented.
Mobile machineries and heavy duty vehicles often utilize multiple electric motors. This architecture results in power and efficiency tests to be particularly challenging. This also has an impact on measurement technology. It becomes particularly clear when analyzing the electrical power in performant heavy duty power trains. The electrical power measurement is the starting point for all further analyses, for example the recording of efficiency or the energy consumption measurements during test cycles.
These complex power measurement tasks must be carried out with a high-voltage-safe E-Mobility Measurement System and a high sampling rate. At the heart of the E-Mobility Measurement System, the electrical power values must be calculated in real time. By attending this presentation, the audience will learn what challenges can be mastered with the help of innovative measurement technology.
