JLG delivers four ultra booms into Algeria

JLG Industries, Inc announced the delivery of an additional four JLG 1250AJPs to ENGPTP in Algeria earlier this month. The delivery is part of an agreement after a consultation and tender request in accordance with the procurement procedure in the Sonatrach Group, launched by the ENGTP (National Enterprise of Large Oil Works) at the end of December 2019.

In July 2019, ENGTP already received six articulating booms, as part of a national and international call for tenders. In total the company took delivery of ten booms delivered over a period of twelve months.

“The relationship between JLG and ENGTP stems from 2009, the year in which the first orders were formalised between the two companies,” says FE Mouaci, Technical Assistant Director at ENGT. He continues, “ENGTP operates a fleet of 28 JLG machines with a variety in working height. The equipment operates on all our sites in the north and south of Algeria during the construction of major works oil and gas companies. The working environment is rough but the JLG machines continue to operate under severe conditions. The equipment has proven to be very reliable allowing us to meet project deadlines and considerably improve our services.”

“As the world leader in designing and manufacturing access equipment, we are very happy that another leader in its category has chosen our machines and renewed its confidence in us once again,” explains David Courtin, Regional Sales Director for Southern Europe and North Africa. He continues, “As part of all contracts signed with ENGTP, our official JLG distributor in Algeria FAYALIFT Eurl has provided in-depth training to the teams employed by ENGTP and takes care of the technical needs and the supply of spare parts necessary to support the customer in maintaining its products.”

ENGTP is a 100 per cent subsidiary of the Sonatrach Group, a leading company in Algeria, specialised in the construction of large industrial complexes intended mainly for the production, transformation, transport and distribution of hydrocarbon.
