Czech Republic power company CEZ has received five high voltage insulated Versalifts for live line maintenance of the country's power grid. The order marks a major rejuvenation of the company’s fleet of high voltage insulated access platforms.
Identical to a similar order from this time last year, CEZ again opted for the overcentre Versalift VO-355-MHI on a 4x4 MAN TGM 18.340 chassis. The fully hydraulic machine features a 101° articulated lower boom with a fiberglass insert and a side mounted upper boom with 210° of articulation. Rated for 138 kV, the VO-355-MHI has a working height of 19.4 metres with an overcentre outreach of 14.8mand a non-overcentre outreach of 11m.
The dual cage setup has a capacity of 2 x 136 kg, dual 90° cage rotators and a manual material handler with a capacity of 905 kg. The machine has continuous rotation and is fitted with extendable H-frame outriggers.
