The Chinese aerial lift market is growing dynamically as safe work habits gain more value by government and construction firms for on-site construction. Haulotte Shanghai is very active all over the country to meet the increasing MEWPs demand.

Recently, the HA16 RTJ articulating boom has distinguished itself in the construction of a section of the Yunnan to Laos railway. The main line is 508 km long, with 18 new stations and 2 reconditioned stations. Because the line passes through high tunnels (8 to 11 meters), it was crucial to find a safe and efficient way to work on electric lighting, mechanical ventilation, and fire protection. Designed to tackle the most demanding projects, the HA16 RTJ features fully proportional and simultaneous movements to reach the work area quickly and with precision. It provides the industry leading work envelope with an outreach of 8.3 m. The operators appreciated its comfort and ease of use. Mr. Wang, project manager, said «The ultra-fast elevation speed enables us to gain productivity. Our teams felt confident while working at height and worked in complete safety». Andy Jia, service engineer from Haulotte Shanghai, went on site to train the operators and promote the safe and effective use of the machine by sharing good practices.
