GEDA and Uperio deepen their partnership

Rate this post

GEDA and Uperio are intensifying their partnership in the field of access solutions. GEDA GmbH, a German company specialized in industrial elevators and material hoists, and Uperio, one of the leading European and global rental companies, have extended their collaboration to include the rental of GEDA brand transport platforms. In addition to the sale and rental of GEDA 2 PK material hoists, Uperio will now include GEDA transport platforms in its range of rental equipment.

The collaboration started in 2018, enabling the companies to comply with local French regulations and meet the increasing demand in the French market. In 2021, the green light was given for the rental of GEDA transport platforms for a large offshore wind farm project near Fécamp in Normandy, France. The wind farm, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2023, will produce enough electricity to meet the needs of 770,000 people annually.

For the construction of the wind farm, 56 GEDA 500 Z/ZP transport platforms were used every day to work efficiently and safely at heights ranging from 48 to 54 meters. The platforms, specially designed for tough daily activities on the construction site, have an enormous level of flexibility. They can be used as either a material hoist with a payload of up to 850 kg or a transport platform for five people and up to 500 kg of payload. Equipped with two separate controls, the platform can serve as a reliable partner in the field of access solutions for any construction site.

Apart from the new transport platforms, GEDA 2 PK material hoists have been part of Uperio’s rental fleet for over five years. Sixteen GEDA 2 PK material hoists from Uperio’s rental fleet have been installed on the tower cranes for the Fécamp project. Uperio France is a long-standing partner of GEDA in the field of material hoists, and the company’s involvement in the Fécamp project highlights the potential for further collaborations.
