Five high voltage insulated Versalifts for CEZ

The Czech power company CEZ has received five high voltage insulated Versalifts for live line maintenance of the Czech power grid. The order marks a major rejuvenation of the company’s fleet of high voltage insulated access platforms.

Identical to a similar order from this time last year, CEZ again opted for the overcenter Versalift VO-355-MHI on a 4x4 MAN TGM 18.340 chassis. The full hydraulic machine features a 101° articulated lower boom with a fiberglass insert and a side mounted upper boom with 210° of articulation. Rated for 138 kV, the VO-355-MHI has a working height of 19.4 metres with an overcenter outreach of 14.8 metres and a non-overcenter outreach of 11.0 metres. The dual cage setup has a capacity of 2 x 136 kg, dual 90° cage rotators and a manual material handler with a capacity of 905 kg. The machine has continuous rotation and is fitted with extendable H-frame outriggers.
