Zoomlion Access sales and marketing director Jason Liu added: “The purchase and application of the first ZT58J in Europe is definitely a milestone of how Zoomlion Access products are trustworthy, and its innovation has been developed aligning with the market demand. As a global manufacturer, we’ve seen a product gap of ultra boom lifts in Europe, and that’s the trigger for innovating ZT58J.”

The Świnoujście LNG terminal is currently being expanded to cope with increased imports and storage of Liquified Natural Gas, to cope with losses from the Russian pipeline closures. When complete, it will have a capacity of 7.5 billion cubic metres a year and be able to satisfy about half of Poland's annual natural gas demand.
