We an Australian based original equipment manufacturer (OEM), specialising in mid-sized battery electric mobile equipment, such as our 20-tonne fully electric mine spec wheel loader.
Born out of the mining industry-wide pressure to decarbonise, BME are helping our customers with a practical electrification solution for mobile equipment.
The executive leadership team of Cougar Mining Group formed Batt Mobile Equipment Pty Ltd in 2016, due to increasing demand for mobile electrical equipment within the mining industry.

For example, we have recently used a REXROTH electric motor, DANFOSS hydrostatic system and KREISEL battery (JOHN DEERE owned company), to develop an affordable yet highly technologically advanced 20-tonne wheel loader, by combining existing, reputable, and proven products.
