Thanks to N.G. AIR S.r.l., the well‐established Partner and official dealer of Palazzani, the first Spider XTJ 32/C ECO (AC+DC) lithium battery powered was delivered to Lazio region, in Italy.
The Company purchasing the machine is D.E.C.A. S.r.l., specialized in rental business green services and environmental activities with public and private Companies for green areas maintenance and care.
This power option is quite unusual for Italian market where the operator generally works with diesel engine.
Mr. Roberto Gentilezza, the Sales Manager of N.G. AIR, interviewed Mr. Emilio Campoli, the Technical Manager of D.E.C.A., who states that: “I chose RAGNO XTJ 32 for two main reasons: first of all because the Palazzani Spider is unique and innovative on the market and because it keeps its excellent performance also by lithium batteries instead of the diesel engine. The second reason, which is also very important for us, is the after‐sale service: thanks to LIFT SERVICE, the authorized workshop, with whom I have been collaborating for at least 20 years, I am sure I get a sharp and effective support service”.
But the question is: why a Company working purely in the open air has chosen an ECO (AC+DC) platform and why lithium battery? The answer is simple: “The philosophy of our Company leads to use friendly‐environment machines and only Palazzani is able to guarantee a product with this technology.” says proudly Mr. Campoli. “The ECO power means completely electric, without diesel engine, with zero emissions in the air. Regarding the lithium batteries choice, it is again a matter of environmental sustainability, since these batteries have no pollution and easy to be disposed of, but also because lithium batteries requires less maintenance and grant greater durability”
RAGNO TZX 250/C ECO for Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo
At the edge of the first desert plateau between the pyramids and Cairo, the Grand Egyptian Museum arises, it is the new spectacular and colossal building which will house 100,000 antiquities, some of which have never before been shown in public.
The design of the museum utilizes the 50m level difference, created as the Nile carves its way through the desert to the Mediterranean, to construct a new ‘edge’ to the plateau, a surface defined by a veil of translucent stone, of the same colour of the desert send, that transforms from day to night.
This will be not only a museum, but a cultural complex of activities devoted to Egyptology and will contain 24,000m² of permanent exhibition space, almost 4 football fields in size, a children’s museum, conference and education facilities, a large conservation centre and extensive gardens. The collections of the museum include the Tutankhamen collection, that is currently housed in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, and the Solar Boat that is now housed beside the pyramids.
One RAGNO TZX 250 will take care of the indoor maintenance. Delivered in October 2017, the machine is crawler version and ECO (DC+AC) powered, to move and operate wherever inside the museums plugged to the electricity or by battery. The stowed dimensions and extremely light weight (only 2.6 tons) allows the Spider to move everywhere, including entering elevators and operating on different floors, with 25.2 m of max w/h and 11,65 m outreach.
