The order -100 electric and hybrid-powered boom lifts - is Niftylift’s biggest delivery of environmentally friendly machines to a single customer in northern Europe.

It comprises two machine types with the latest battery technology; fully electric HeightRider 21 All-Electric (HR21E) and the hybrid lift HeightRider 28 (HR28).

Kranpunkten said in a statement that it was continuing to convert its rental fleet through new investments to “meet the need for an increasing proportion of environmentally and energy-saving lifting equipment in construction and industrial projects.”

The firm’s strategy is to gradually increase the proportion of machines with low environmental impact. This latest investment means that 85% of the rental fleets 4,500 units now are electric and hybrid operated.

“The field of application for boom lifts is wide, which makes them a popular and in-demand rental product,” Kranpunkten’s statement said.

“With the emission- and noise-free electric operation, the utility increases further, as the machines also can be in operation when projects enter the indoor phase and when working in the early mornings and late evenings.”

Rikard Jönsson, Purchasing Manager at Kranpunkten, said; “The delivery from Niftylift means a lot to us.

“With many uncertainties in the world around us, we believe that today and in the future we are best equipped to meet the market demand if we can offer a high proportion of environmental and energy-saving machines.”

“We collaborate with our stakeholders and help each other make sustainable choices.

“Kranpunkten is a customer with a conscious strategy and clear requirements for environmental adaptation, which contributes to driving our development forward at a faster pace.”

Delivery of the order is underway and will continue throughout 2022.
