Case Study


We were engaged due to our relevant prior experience and successful track record to convert and prepare an off highway electric construction vehicle for a major international client. We managed the project alongside compiling the mechanical designs and assisting with the physical prototype manufacture, assembly and commissioning . The project turnaround was just 7 weeks and we are extremely proud that the working prototype was delivered on time, and exceeded all customer expectation.

Orion Product Development Case Study – Electric Off Highway Construction Vehicle

We worked with the world’s leading supplier of electric powertrain to deliver a significant new project for a major new client, themselves a global leader in their field of off highway construction machinery.

The project was to convert an existing diesel construction machine to a demonstrator unit with a bespoke electric powertrain in an extremely demanding timescale of just 7 weeks.

We were engaged due to our experience and successful track record with this type of project, and more specifically this type of product.  We managed the project, compiled the mechanical designs, and assisted with prototype manufacture, assembly and commissioning.

We are proud to say that the working prototype was delivered on time, and that the end result exceeded customer expectation.

Note: this project is still live and confidential, please check back again later when we will hopefully be able to share more details and images

I engaged Kevin to help us on this very high profile project due to his level of experience and successful track record in the field.  Kevin was fully committed to our project goal in every way, integrating into and often managing our project team, and frequently going above and beyond to help us meet our extremely demanding delivery target.  With his support and guidance we were able to deliver an extremely high quality prototype machine in a very short time scale, and we simply couldn’t have done it without him.
