Naffco unveils new maintenance unit line-up
Dubai, May 8, 2013
National Fire Fighting and Manufacturing (Naffco) has introduced its revolutionary live line maintenance unit, which will facilitate high voltage lines maintenance without interrupting electricity supply.
It is an advanced version of Naffco’s aerial insulated access platform unit but with a much higher capability. A prodigy of its kind, it has the capacity to reach up to 65m in height whilst allowing maintenance works to carry out at 500,000 volts, a statement from the company said.
Meeting international standards, a new generation of fibre optic controls has been introduced in the working bucket which provides electromagnetic immunity in high intensive fields assuring high working safety conditions.
High on engineered genius, this unit is equipped with centralised auto lube system reducing the need of human intervention and eliminating manual greasing of chassis. The state-of-the-art CTIS (central tire inflation system) allows it to work in deserts and off-roads empowering the operator to inflate or deflate tyres with a touch of the button from the cabin.
Its robust telescopic and articulated boom is foam-filled which prevents any humidity, thus making it insulated for additional safety. Added features boasts of ultimate lifting platforms enabling “bare hands” operations in all atmospheric and geological conditions.
This unit not only passes but exceeds the IEC 1057 approval which is a global standard for such category of maintenance vehicles.
“We have undergone the most stringent testing for our live line maintenance unit which can carry 500 lbs to scale 65m which has been tested at a world record 1,250,000 volts,” said Mohammad Nadeem Siddiqui, regional export director of Naffco.
“All such Naffco’s mobile platform units are fully certified by IEC 1057. We concentrate on innovations which will meet our customer needs. Our focus ever remains on developing high end value added products and services that matter most to our clients,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
