Johnson Arabia enhances fleet with wide range of new battery-powered equipment

New additions include the EC600, EC450 and EC520 electric booms which are new to the region

Johnson Arabia has grown its range of battery-powered equipment, enhancing customer service and experience, the company says.

The investments included a Liebherr – LTM 1450-8.1, two MAN tractors, electric scissors (R1932, R2632, R3246, R4045), booms (450AJ, 660SJ, 860SJ, 1200SJP) and also equipment, which is new to region such as the EC600, EC450 and EC520 electric booms. The new electric booms, which are said to have long battery life and the capability of a diesel equivalent, are in line with the rental company’s aim of having environmentally conscious machinery for projects that are trying to get LEED accreditation.

“As market leaders we constantly evaluate what our clients are hiring on a larger scale from us and what will have long term benefit to our fleet and that is why we have decided to invest in so many new machines,” says Johnson Arabia Managing Director Martin Kirby.

Construction Machinery Middle East’s 2022 Access & Handling Summit will take place on 16 November at the Radisson Red Hotel in Dubai Silicon Oasis. Registration is complementary but mandatory for industry professionals.

Joe Keely, AWP Executive Manager continued, “As Dubai moved towards a more sustainable approach, a lot of our clients were becoming conscious of emissions generated and we found out electrical AWPS were being sent out a lot more, so we had to ensure we improved our existing fleet to meet the market needs.”

The Manlift fleet expansion which includes new machinery like the E600, EC450 AND EC 520 was facilitated due to Johnson Arabia’s long-standing relationship with JLG.  According to Johnson Arabia, the purchase of the Liebherr – LTM 1450-8.1 was made for a similar reason of efficiency in addition to its 85m main boom enabling better lifts.

Mohammad Fareed, Crane Executive Manager, adds “We are pleased with our 450 tonne Liebherr which has ECOmode so that the mobile crane’s fuel consumption is reduced by up to 10% in addition to its massive lifting capabilities. The crane was acquired with a longstanding partnership through Adrighem who are pioneers in large crane supply and hold a vast equipment inventory that they manage from their headquarters in Netherlands.”

In August 2022, Johnson Arabia completed the installation and erection work for a date processing complex in Oman and, later in the month, it finished works on a calcined petroleum coke plant in Oman.
