First IPAF training in Turkey.

The Turkish truck mounted rental company BigLift Office, which specialises in high platforms from 45m to 70m has provided IPAF training for seven of its operators - believed to be the first IPAF training in Turkey.

BigLift is an unusual company in that it is a completely equal joint venture between two competing Turkish rental companies: İstanbul Vinc and Ayhanlar Platform. The two companies say they are cooperating successfully to serve the mostly international and wind power companies.

Although there is not yet an IPAF office in Turkey, BigLift brought IPAF trainers Matthias Müller and Yüksel Dülger to the company to carry out PAL (Powered Access License) Card training in the 1b category.

The entire fleet at BigLift are Wumag machines from Palfinger Platforms.
