Haulotte joins Beijing Daxing International Airport project

Haulotte has recently delivered 16 machines to help with the construction of Beijing Daxing International Airport in China. Among them included two units of Haulotte HA20 LE electric articulating boom lift, which were reportedly chosen due to their eco-friendly features.

Scheduled to open in late 2019, Beijing Daxing International Airport is set to become the world’s largest airport. It is said that environmental aspects are placed at the centre of this project. Thus, the Haulotte HA20 LE is considered an ideal solution as it fully satisfies the environmental protection requirements. This electric powered machine offers silent operation, indoors or outdoors on any surface, with no harmful emissions.

The oscillating axle and four-wheel drive of Haulotte HA20 LE provide optimal adherence and stability. Ultra-fast elevation speed, 360-degree continuous turret rotation and simultaneous movements improve productivity. Thanks to an optimal energy management, the HA20LE enables a full day’s work in electric mode. An on-board range extender can rapidly recharge the high-capacity batteries while the machine remains operational.

In addition to the two electric articulating booms, Haulotte delivered four other articulating booms (HA12 IP, HA15 IP and HA41 RTJ Pro), two 55XA lightweight self-propelled booms, two Star 10 vertical masts, and six Compact 14 scissor lifts.
