Riwald Dakar Team “Hybrid Power”


November 10 th 2021 - 17:35

Since 2019, the Riwald Dakar Team has had a unique collaboration with their Czech partner MKR Technology with the development of the hybrid off-road truck. Riwald Recycling is one of the forerunners in the field of hybrid and fully electrically powered cranes. Hence the choice for the hybrid off-road truck, with which the Riwald Dakar Team has been competing in the famous Dakar Rally since 2020.

Both Riwald Recycling and the Riwald Dakar Team invest in sustainability. The team was therefore one of the first participants at the start with an alternative energy and power source in trucks category. A bold and ambitious project. Starting this complex project has caused the team a lot of headaches. Gert Huzink: “It is not easy to introduce something new, but we are convinced that we must invest in sustainability, even if it is by trial and error. We are therefore confident that we can optimize the hybrid truck in collaboration with MKR Technology. Partly due to the knowledge we gain in this project, we are investigating the possibilities for building a fully electric powered truck.”  

The Riwald Dakar Team is extremely proud that it is part of the Dakar Future project as the first participant of the famous rally with a hybrid truck.
