Instant Access adds to Bravi AWP fleet in Middle East


Instant Access has placed its third order for a container load of Bravi Leonardo HD low level access platforms, taking its current fleet to 67 Bravi units, expanding its presence in the UAE, Qatar and Kuwait.

Instant Access equipment recently featured in the Cleveland Clinic project on Sowwah Island, Abu Dhabi, where it had approximately 28 Leonardo HD on hire to ETA from Dubai for a period of nine months. The units are being used on the prestigious Doha International Airport project where approximately 20 aerial work platforms are working with contractors on the final stages of the project. According to Instant Access, these units cut operation costs by around 50 percent.

AWPs were also on display at the recent Big 5 show in Dubai (5-8 November 2012), where many international contractors made enquiries.

The Leonardo HD (heavy duty), drivable at its full 4.9m working height, with its total weight of only 508kg, comes with all-steel chassis and canopies and integrated forklift pockets. Designed to be used in the harshest environments, it features active pothole protection for an increased ground clearance, preferred in the contracting environment.

Chris Brocklehurst, operational manager for Instant Access, who is also the agent for Bravi in the GCC, said: “We are delighted with this product and the services we receive from Bravi; we see this as the future of the low level access market in the region and we are very proud of our relationship with the market leader in this field.”

Marina Torres, sales manager at Bravi, added: “This collaboration was a very important test for our products that have proven extremely reliable and robust, effortlessly enduring use on particularly difficult sites and withstanding uniquely harsh environmental and weather conditions.”
