  • Genie® XC™ boom lifts and FE hybrid technology were crucial in expanding the Tambrig landfill in Oberfelden, Switzerland.

  • Bau-Trans Ag provided Genie SX™-105 XC™, S®-85 XC, and Z®-60 FE boom lifts for the project from June to November 2023.

  • The hybrid Z-60 FE boom lift was used for assembly work, offering a maximum working height of 20.16 m and full-time active oscillating axles for rough terrain.

  • The SX-105 XC and S-85 XC boom lifts provided high lifting capacities, with unrestricted capacities of 300 kg and restricted capacities of 454 kg.

  • The project was completed on time, with the reliability of the Genie booms preventing downtime and ensuring continuous work.

Quality and reliability, along with the heavy-lifting capabilities of Genie® XC™ boom lifts and FE hybrid technology, prevented unnecessary downtime and helped keep the project on track.

At the end of last year, the Tambrig landfill in Oberfelden, Switzerland, underwent an expansion to include a new processing hall that offers protection from precipitation, as well as space for separating delivered material. Three Genie® boom lifts were on site for several months during the construction, which occurred on the site of the former Tambrig gravel pit, to facilitate the work.

Bau-Trans Ag in Liechtenstein, a part of the Felbermayr Group, provided a Genie SX™-105 XC™ telescopic boom lift, an S®-85 XC telescopic boom lift, and a hybrid Z®-60 FE articulating boom lift between June and November 2023 to perform a variety of work at height, including assembly work.

“The Genie booms were extremely reliable, which helped make sure that work could continue, without interruption, for the tight construction period. The project had to be finalized before the winter set-in, therefore we needed the most reliable machines,” said Roger Beck, Rental Manager for mobile cranes, special and heavy transport, forklifts and aerial work platforms of Bau-Trans AG. “Downtime can have a very significant negative impact on any project, but particularly one with a tight timeline, which is why it was so important to us to provide high-quality and reliable equipment. Our customer was very satisfied with the Genie booms, which we were able to deliver on short time notice for the entire period of the project, which was finished on time thanks, at least in part, to the booms. Bau-Trans AG and I would like to thank everyone involved for the great order.”

Beck continued: “Our tagline is: ‘We bring Power in Motion. There’s no such thing as impossible!’”

The hybrid Z-60 FE boom was used primarily to help with assembly of external walls up to its maximum working height of 20.16 m. A 1.52 m articulating jib with 135° of vertical rotation helped operators accurately position themselves for work, while full-time active oscillating axles and 4WD helped maintain traction on rough terrain. Like all Genie FE hybrid boom lifts, the Z-60 FE can work an entire, standard work day on a single charge or a full, standard work week on a single tank of fuel. Genie’s FE technology also eliminates downtime by allowing operators to operate the machine even if the battery is flat, and by charging the battery while the lift is operating in hybrid mode.

The two higher-reaching, heavy-lifting Xtra Capacity™ boom lifts provided the capacity needed to take multiple operators and their materials to height. Both the SX-105 XC and the S-85 XC boast an unrestricted capacity of 300 kg and a restricted capacity of 454 kg.

With a max working height of 34 m and a 1.52 m articulating jib, the SX-105 XC is frequently used for work like bridge inspections and maintenance, in stadiums and sports arenas, and in oil and gas, industrial and utility applications. The S-85 XC, which has a max working height of 27.91 m and a 1.52 m articulating jib, is popular with general construction and industrial jobs thanks to its reach and lifting capacity.
