Features include automatic outrigger setup and levelling, around eight metres of below ground reach, power to the platform and the ability to work in wind speeds up to 15.5 metres a second.
The P900 will predominately be used for maintenance of wind turbines

Established in 1989, Grúas y Transportes Bony offers a wide range of lifting and transportation services throughout the Canary islands from its locations in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria and Tenerife. Its fleet includes more than 100 All Terrain, crawler, loader and spider cranes along with specialist transport vehicles.
