Danish rental specialist Steiness Liftcenter ApS has taken delivery of two lithium-electric Snorkel SL26RTE Speed Levels - the first in Denmark.
Steiness Liftcenter placed the order for the two Speed Levels with the official Snorkel distributor in Denmark, KH Lift ApS, on the day that Snorkel announced full UK production of the electric Speed Level models.
Based in Taastrup, near Copenhagen, Steiness Liftcenter ApS is a leading provider of aerial work platforms in Denmark. Having been in business for almost 20 years, the company is well established and takes pride in stocking the latest models for their customers.
Steiness moved into a brand new, custom-built facility in 2019 and currently operates a fleet of more than 450 units.
Owner Poul Steiness says: "Zero-emission models are in high demand in the Danish market, and it was important for us to be the first in Denmark to stock the lithium-powered Speed Level. We have a long-standing relationship with Karsten Haahr at KH Lift, and appreciate their help in making us the first to the Danish market with these innovative lifts, and one of the first in Scandinavia."
The lithium battery-powered Snorkel SL26RTE delivers a maximum platform height of 8.0 m, a lift capacity of 680 kg and has a spacious 1.72m x 4.6m platform with the 0.91 m roll-out deck extension deployed. Weighing 3,500 kg, the SL26RTE is available with non-marking tyres, making it ideal for all types of indoor and outdoor applications.
Henrik Skibsted, Territory Manager for Scandinavia and the Baltics for Snorkel, says the Speed Level is an innovative design that has stood the test of time, "so to now be able to offer its unique capabilities and impressive performance with the added benefit of zero emissions is a fantastic offering for our customer base in this territory."
"We are delighted that Steiness Liftcenter were the first to bring these fantastic lifts into the Danish market, and we look forward to seeing this technology at work on jobsites all around Denmark in the near future."
