As part of Kranpunkten’s green strategy, the company prioritizes investments in vehicles and machines that contribute to creating a sustainable rental fleet with the least possible climate impact. In this year’s deliveries of new replacement vehicles about 20 new truck-mounted platforms are noted with emission class Euro 6 and ready to be fuelled with the fossil free renewable diesel HVO100.
Since before, a conversion of existing rental fleet is underway to more hybrid and electric rental machines and renewable fuels. Within transporting, measures are also being taken to reduce volumes through transport optimization, co-loading and increased digitalisation.
– We are constantly working to replace older machines and vehicles to models that meet the market’s environmental and business requirements. With the new truck-mounted platforms we increase the proportion of vehicles with emission class Euro 6 and receive the latest technology in internal combustion engines. The truck-mounted platforms will also be powered by fossil free fuel, in accordance with our previous decision that all diesel-powered machines and vehicles should be refueled with HVO100, says Kranpunkten’s purchasing manager Rikard Jönsson.
Most of the new truck-mounted platforms come from Ruthmann. Among the models are the new TB 300 with a working height of 30 meters and a range of 17.10 meters. A smaller number of Versalift ET 32, are also included in the delivery. These are four-wheel drive vehicles and suitable for line work.
Of the approximately 20 truck-mounted platforms, 6 have already reached Kranpunkten depots in Gothenburg and Stockholm. Remaining units will be delivered to the depots until September.
