HV12 HYBRID, the “green” platform made in TECHOIL
Green choice for TECHOIL, the aerial platforms manufacturer based in Bertinoro (Italy) which, after the great success of the HV12 (the van mounted aerial platform), has launched the Hybrid series.
The customers themselves requested a “green” version and highlighted the need to work in areas where the “normal” engine could not be used for safety and/or environmental reasons. “In recent years – comments Paolo Scogli, managing director of TECHOIL -, we decided to give a green turn to the company by optimizing the production cycle and trying to maximize separate collection and recycling of materials. And with the new HV12 we are now doing it directly on the road by introducing a “green” version of our platform. Specifically, thanks to a dedicated battery that allows several complete work cycles, the HV12 can work with the engine off, limiting emissions only to the moving phase of the van. The HV12 Hybrid is an environmentally friendly solution that ensures high efficiency and low operating costs”.
“Thanks to the absence of stabilizers, the 12-metre maximum working height and the 7-metre outreach, the HV series is ideal for those who need to carry out work quickly, carrying spare parts and equipment with them. With almost 8 cubic meters of space and 400 kg of payload in the Hybrid version – explains Giovanni Adami Carbonara, TECHOIL sales director -, the HV12 is the solution for working in confined spaces, in historic city centers and now also where the diesel engine is prohibited”.
Among the standard equipment also the advanced management of the functions with automatic centering and the wireless connection that allows you to connect remotely with the service for quick and on site interventions.
HV12 is mounted on Renault master, is 6.632 meters long, 3.20 meters high, has a basket capacity of 120 kg.
The first model of the Hybrid series will be delivered in the next few days to a French customer while the Italian manufacturer has already received many orders for other models destined to France, but also to Italy and to other European markets.
