The Snorkel A 46 JE gets to work at the Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Centre.

Russian sales and rental company LTech has been commissioned to help prepare the new Russian space rocket Angara for transportation to the Plesetsk Cosmodrome spaceport.

LTech has provided a Snorkel A 46 JE (UpRight AB46E) electric boom lift to carry out works in the space vehicle assembly workshop at the Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Centre.

The A 46 JE has a working height of 16.1 m and an horizontal outreach of 7.4 m. It has 360° rotation and a battery capacity of 360 Ah, which provides 12 hours of operation.

Assembly of the Angara rocket is being carried out in near sterile conditions: all staff of the Khrunichev centre are dressed in white coats and even the Snorkel lift has special non-marking tyres.
