Our Team


ALTDRIVE is an engineered system used to replace diesel engines in Heavy Equipment. The alternative drive powertrains consist of a hybrid, or completely electric means of propelling the machine with industrial batteries. The system can be adapted to Heavy Equipment such as Commercial Trucks, Tractors, Excavators, Buses, Haul Trucks, Light Rail, and Mining.

The ALTDRIVE technology is implemented by MEDATECH Engineering Services Ltd.
