prestigious Good Design® Award for its methane-powered wheel loader concept
from the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European
Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies
CASE Construction Equipment received the prestigious Good
Design® Award for ProjectTETRA, the methane-powered wheel loader concept that
provides an insight into a sustainable, connected and technologically advanced
future of construction.
The Good Design® program is the oldest design awards
programme, organised by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and
Design in cooperation with The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and
Urban Studies, and recognises the best designed products across the globe for
sustainability, superior design and unparalleled function.
The jury of the 69th Good Design program, composed of
renowned international specialists with broad design experience, selected this
year’s winners following the original program’s criteria, which include the
innovation, functional and ecological impact of each winning product. As a
winner of the award, ProjectTETRA will be featured in the Good Design Yearbook
for 2019-2020 and can be viewed at the Museum’s website at https://www.good-designawards.com/.
The CASE wheel loader concept, jointly developed by
the CASE engineering and CNH Industrial international design teams, reimagines
wheel loader design. It demonstrates the viability of alternative fuels in
construction equipment and the feasibility of using fuel generated from waste
products and renewable sources. It is powered by a proven methane engine,
produced by CASE’s sister brand FPT Industrial, that delivers the same
performance as its diesel equivalent. The innovative design includes cutting-edge
styling and an advanced operator environment that makes extensive use of
touchscreen and voice control technologies. The concept also offers innovative
safety features that use biometric technologies and an obstacle detection
system derived from CNH Industrial’s autonomous vehicle research and
ProjectTETRA has been tested in real-world
construction environments, demonstrating its feasibility and proving its
business case in terms of sustainability, reduced overall Total Cost of Ownership
and operational viability.
