Norwegian access and lifting equipment specialist Hybeko has developed a specialist Tunnel 3390 RT scissor lift based on a Genie rough-terrain unit. The Hybeko Tunnel 3390 RT scissor lift combines minimal exhaust emissions with two modes of operation (tunnel and standard) in a single unit. The new Hybeko Tunnel lift is already a popular choice among rental customers in Norway. Espen Johannessen, Hybeko chief executive, says: "With more tunnels opening each year, in addition to an extensive existing tunnel network that requires regular maintenance, Norway counts several huge projects that are scheduled for completion within the next 10 years. However, while market demand for access equipment is high, work in tunnels means adapting equipment to specific requirements. These include low exhaust emissions, lower working heights to avoid contact with overhead obstacles such as fans, and efficiencies that help save time to work rapidly. "Designed with and for our customers in Norway, our Hybeko Tunnel 3390 RT scissor lift is built to meet all the different aspects of tunnel and general construction access applications following the latest European EN 280 guidelines." The Hybeko Tunnel 3390 RT scissor lift is equipped with a high performance catalyst and particle filter for minimal exhaust emissions and a 7.38 m "super deck" platform offering up to 1,134 kg lift capacity and room for up to seven people and their tools and equipment. Headquartered in Skien with branch offices in Bergen, Trondheim and Lillestrøm, Hybeko specialises in the production, import and sales of access and lifting equipment throughout Norway and is an authorised Genie distributor.
