Last July, VINCI Construction carried out its first roadworks project using 100% electric equipment, as part of the works to resurface Rue du Lieutenant-Petit-Le-Roy in Chevilly-Larue (Val-de-Marne). The project was carried out by Emulithe (a VINCI Construction subsidiary), and involved making the street one-way and creating a cycle path. It is further evidence of VINCI Construction’s commitment to reducing the carbon footprint of its operations and limiting noise pollution in urban areas.

Following two days of familiarisation and training, Emulithe’s teams successfully used – as part of a trial – a 100% electric, rechargeable and silent sprayer, paver and roller, drastically reducing greenhouse gas emissions and noise pollution compared with those produced by conventional worksite equipment. This was the first time that all-electric models of these three essential roadworks machines had been used on a single worksite. This full-scale trial owes its success to the collaboration with the FAYAT Group, manufacturer of the electric sprayer, paver and roller used on this worksite.


All-electric equipment used on the site

  • THE BOX, from Secmair, a sprayer designed squarely with decarbonisation in mind. It boasts excellent range and insulation, great usability and simple operation – all designed, engineered and manufactured in France.
  • The SD1800W e is the first mass-produced electric urban paver, manufactured exclusively by Dynapac. Its 98-kWh battery provides long range and fast recharging. Its low noise level, zero fine-particle emissions and zero smoke emissions make it ideal for urban use and mean it has a much lower carbon footprint.
  • The BOMAG BW 100 ADe-5 electric roller is rechargeable and equipped with the best battery, motor and inverter technology available today. The manufacturer has carefully integrated all these components to give the user an unparalleled driving experience. Its silent operation and simple information display on the dashboard give drivers excellent visibility and an instant feeling of being in control, making their working day effective and stress-free.

Worksite carbon footprint

The worksite provided an opportunity to test the performance of these new electric machines – identical to their combustion-engined equivalents – and how long their batteries would last during a day’s work. It also confirmed the significant reduction in CO2 emissions, with this low-carbon worksite saving 0.25 tonnes of CO2-eq per day compared with a worksite using conventional machines.

Decarbonisation of roadworks

VINCI Construction has been working for a number of years on implementing measures and developing management tools1 aimed at reducing CO2 emissions by 40% by 2030. The use of electric-powered vehicles, light equipment, excavators and even lorries on worksites is growing. VINCI Construction’s trial on a roadworks site of 100% electric versions of three key roadworks vehicles is a further step in its ongoing search for innovative solutions to improve the energy and environmental performance of its operations, with the aim of gradually integrating low- carbon vehicles into its fleet.
