Order comprising various powered access machines to be used for aircraft maintenance in new Istanbul Airport
Turkish Technic has commissioned 26 new Haulotte powered access machines for its new service centre in the recently inaugurated new Istanbul Airport.
A statement from Haulotte said that Turkish Technic, a leading service provider in the aircraft maintenance, repair and modification sector, recently received the last Haulotte Star 6 PICKING unit in ordered to complete its main fleet, which now consists of more than 70 Haulotte machines.
Acarlar Makine, Haulotte distributor in Turkey, has been supplying Turkish Technic with lifting equipment from the French powered access major for more than 10 years. Serkan Acar, general manager, Acarlar Makine, said: “The maintenance of aircrafts is highly regulated in order to ensure safe and correct functioning during flight. For this reason, high performance machines are required to finish the work on time by providing the highest safety levels for engineers and operators.”
A wide range of machines were chosen by Turkish Technic, Acar added. The order included products such as scissor lifts, articulating booms and electric vertical masts.
The Haulotte HA26 RTJ PRO and HA41 RTJ PRO articulating booms will be used to maintain the high ceilings in the hangars. These versatile machines have been designed to meet the expectations of operators in terms of performance and ensure cost-effective investment for the end user, says Haulotte.
Both booms are equipped with the Activ’Lighting system with lighting points ideally placed around the machine to ensure the safety of the driver during loading and unloading operations. The machines also come with Haulotte’s Activ’Shield bar, which prevents crushing risks and protects the operator.
Compact 12 electric scissor lifts and Star 6 PICKING vertical masts were also delivered for various aircraft maintenance tasks, Acar added.
The new Istanbul Airport has been one of the most successful projects for Haulotte in recent years, with more than 300 of its machines having already served on the project during the construction phase.
