Haulotte boom lift plays role in Yunnan to Laos railway project

A Haulotte HA16 RTJ articulating boom has been involved in the construction of a section of the Yunnan to Laos railway project. The main line is 508 km long, with 18 new stations and two reconditioned stations.

As the line passes through high tunnels (8- to 11-m), the project team opted for the HA16 RTJ to perform a safe and efficient work on electric lighting, mechanical ventilation, and fire protection.

Designed to tackle the most demanding jobs, the HA16 RTJ features fully proportional and simultaneous movements to reach the work area quickly and precisely. The unit provides an excellent work envelope with an outreach of 8.3 m.

“The ultra-fast elevation speed enables us to gain productivity. Our team felt confident while working at height and worked in complete safety,” said Mr Wang, the project manager. A service engineer from Haulotte Shanghai also went on site to train the operators and promote the safe and effective use of the machine.
