Lithium booms for Contract Plant Rental

The Contract Plant Rental division of UK based Ballyvesey Holdings has taken six new 65ft lithium battery powered LGMG T20JE telescopic boom lifts, part of a move towards fleet electrification.

The LGMG T20E - T65JE in North America - is one of four LGMG lithium electric telescopic booms, unveiled last year. The 65JE has a 2.44 metre wide platform, a maximum working height of 21.8 metres, with an outreach of 16.6 metres with the unrestricted platform capacity of 300kg while the maximum platform capacity of 450kg can be extended to an outreach of almost 14 metres. The new boom lifts were purchased though UK/Ireland distributor Access Platform Sales (APS).

Stuart Lambert runs the access business and said: "Contract hire is the ideal way to bridge the gap between conventional technologies like diesel, and new ones like lithium electric. By offering these lithium platforms we give our new fleet customers a zero-risk option to take Rough Terrain lithium platforms into their fleets so they, and their customers, can see and experience their clear advantages first hand. This process will help them to flexibly implement fleet development plans that are cost-effective and 100 percent focused on customer needs and expectations, as well as regulatory requirements."

"The UK infrastructure construction and maintenance sector is going green to reduce carbon footprint at an aggressive speed. Make no mistake, lithium is no passing love affair. It's here for the next generation. Our new lithium LGMG booms are a key part of that process. For many rental customers, all-electric platforms and lithium machines in particular, are a key concern for fleet development, but many are cautious about how to implement their investment strategies."
