Kranpunkten’s journey towards a climate-neutral operation continues. The customers’ clear demands for sustainable machines means that the company, despite troubled times, can place an order for 130 electric scissor lifts with working heights of up to 19 meters and a proportion of completely oil-free units. The number of environmentally and energy-saving machines now makes up 84% of Kranpunkten’s rental fleet.
For Kranpunkten’s customers, with projects in construction and industry, it is a prerequisite to be able to conduct sustainable operations with environmentally friendly machines. Kranpunkten meets the need with a gradual conversion to more electric and hybrid-powered units, measures to reduce emissions from transport and by phasing out substances hazardous to the environment and health. A strategy that makes it easier for all parties to make sustainable choices and that drives development forward.
The new order includes 130 all-electric scissor lifts from Dingli. The delivery consists, among other things, of off-road lifts with a working height of up to 19 meters as well as completely oil-free units without hydraulic systems and with lower energy consumption. The lifts will be put into use gradually during the first quarter of 2023.
– We continue to make high demands on our suppliers. Therefore, it is gratifying to see that technology development is moving forward and giving us opportunities to supplement our fleet with standardized, electric-powered machines that can handle work at high altitude. After various tests and product reviews, it also feels very good to be able to execute the order for oil-free machines. Hopefully it will help our customers and our own service organization in a positive way going forward, says Rikard Jönsson, purchasing manager at Kranpunkten.
