Haulotte machines selected for a large nuclear project

Bylor JV ordered more than 80 Haulotte machines to take part in the construction of the buildings

Situated on the Somerset Coast, HPC is the first nuclear power station to be built in the United Kingdom for a generation.


Bylor JV, the largest Tier 1 supplier on the site, purchased 83 Haulotte mobile elevating platforms (scissor liftsvertical masts and articulating booms) to carry out the main civil engineering and construction works. The Compact 8 and Optimum 8 electric scissor lifts meet all demands in terms of productivity and low maintenance. Their compact dimensions enable the operator to manoeuvre in the most restricted places. Bylor Joint Venture also ordered 38 vertical masts. The versatile Star 6 and Star 10 operate both indoor and outdoor. The AC motors provide a high precision driving and smooth movements.

Articulating booms complete the delivery. With zero tail swing and a tight turning radius, the HA12 CJoffers optimal agility. Its proportional and simultaneous movements provide unmatched precision and comfort to get to hard-to-reach areas. The HA16 RTJ PRO is designed to increase the productivity on construction sites thanks to its excellent working envelope and the 360° continuous rotation. It embeds Haulotte innovations for optimal safety – including Haulotte Activ'Shield BarHaulotte Activ'Lighting SystemHaulotte Activ'Screen on-board diagnostic tool and Haulotte Stop Emission System


All equipment ordered will be supplied from Haulotte plants in Reims (France) and Arges (Romania). The equipment was prepared prior to despatch at the UK facility in Wolverhampton, in a collaboration similar to that of the Bylor JV partnership.
