Manitou brings its first electric all-terrain aerial platform to Asia

Manitou has introduced the Oxygen 200 ATJ E - the Group’s first electric all-terrain aerial platform - to the Asian market. The model provides a working height of 20 m, working outreach of 11.57 m and 7.90 m up and over. It is a versatile machine ideal for indoor, outdoor and urban use thanks to its zero emission and noise cancellation capability.

The Oxygen 200 ATJ E offers improved total cost of ownership with its zero fuel consumption, enhanced onboard diagnostic and reduced preventive maintenance. Designed as a 100% electric mobile all-terrain elevating work platform, the ‘Oxygen’ machine aims to address the growing demand in Asia for flexible low-carbon solutions and accelerate users towards their goals of sustainability and efficiency.

The Oxygen range can be used for various applications such as cladding, framework, painting, cleaning, pruning, events, airport maintenance, port maintenance, industrial maintenance and urban worksites. The Oxygen 200 ATJ E has a 230 kg basket capacity and up to 45% gradeability. The machine is equipped with a 48 V / 460 Ah battery (lead acid) and 48 V / 60 Ah integrated charger.

The introduction of the Oxygen 200 ATJ E in Asia took place today (12 December) during the inaugural showcase event at the Manitou Centre Singapore – organised by Manitou Asia. The company also displayed a wide range of aerial work platforms (AWPs) for the Asian market.

“Our AWP showcase in Asia symbolises Manitou’s commitment to bringing the most state-of-the-art solutions to users in this region. Tapping upon our well-established strengths in telehandlers, our AWP innovations will offer a competitive advantage to meet evolving needs and enhance working conditions, safety and efficiency for customers in Asia,” said Bernd Freudenmann, vice president of Manitou APAC.

In addition, Manitou’s fleet of smart AWPs have been developed as Connected Machines to allow users to fully harness the benefits offered by Internet of Things (IoT). They can provide real-time access to machine data, remote monitoring for better service levels and maintenance data on mobile apps. This means that users can track and trace their machines, enjoy anticipative maintenance to minimise downtime and achieve higher return on investment.

The inaugural showcase event in Singapore marks another milestone in Manitou’s expansion into the AWP market to better serve the construction and industrial sectors in Asia. In September 2019, Manitou Group started the construction of a new factory dedicated to AWPs in Candé (Maine-et-Loire), France, as part of its global investment plan. To be completed by the first quarter of 2021, this new industrial facility will enable the Group to respond to AWP market growth in various regions including Asia.
