Andy Northwood of Dingli UK said: “We are delighted to partner with such a forward thinking company as Advanced who, like ourselves, are committed to delivering low emission aerial work platform solutions that still deliver on customers’ expectations on both performance and productivity.”

Jamie Corcoran of Advanced added: “We have spent more than three years pursuing our environmentally friendly strategy and have the largest fleet of Niftylift Hybrids and electric Dingli’s in London. We also now have 21 spider lifts and the first two Hinowa 26 bi-fuels. The policy is really starting to prove worthwhile for our major clients.”

The new machines will be based at Advanced’s central London depot, located within the ultra low emission zone. The company recently took delivery of 40 new Niftylift booms and has also placed an order for 70 Skyjack platforms, having taken delivery of six new 53ft Skyjack SJ9253 yesterday.
