London, UK-based Advanced Access Platforms has opened a new depot located just across the Thames from the Millennium Dome in Central London. The depot is ideally situated for Advanced Access to build its customer base in the busy capital.
The company is also expanding its fleet with Niftylift hybrid and electric booms. Advanced Access chose the Nifty booms their environmentally conscious power systems and low overall weight.
John Corcoran, director of Advanced Access Platforms commented, “They all conform to the Low Emission Zone requirements and the lower machine weights mean that we can transport them around the city on smaller wagons, keeping costs down to a minimum.”
New environmental initiatives such as the Low Emission Zone (LEZ) in central London and the new Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) for 2019, mean that environmental performance has never been more important.
Niftylift’s entire Hybrid range conforms to the current LEZ standards and the 2019 ULEZ standards.
Advanced Access is the first company to take Niftylift’s brand new HR12L (Low-Weight), an all-electric, low-weight 12m boom. The HR12L is 1.79m wide and weighs just 2,540kgs, allowing it to be transported on a trailer, for low-cost transportation. It is powered by AGM (maintenance-free) batteries that offer more than double the capacity of its predecessor, allowing it to work for extended duty cycles measured in days rather than hours. It also includes a new ‘Hybrid’ ToughCage and Niftylift’s SiOPS as standard.
