Haulotte has played a role in China's latest space project which saw last month's launch of the main section of the CSS space station.
Haulotte machines have been working at Wenchang spacecraft launch site for the assembly and testing stage of this central piece of the future station.
Haulotte MEWPs were deployed in the construction of the space station, especially during the assembly process of the 16.6 m Tianhe module.
Thanks to a horizontal outreach of 8,65 m and fully proportional controls, the HA15 IP elevating work platform was used for tasks undertaken up to 15 meters above the ground.
"We are pleased to be part of this historic project, which highlights the performance and reliability of our equipment," says Tim Mo, marketing manager at Haulotte China.
This is not the first time that the European lifting equipment manufacturer has participated in a Chinese space program. In 2003, Haulotte's articulating booms were used to prepare for the first Chinese manned flight, Shenzhou 5.
