CTE at Apex 2023

A great international showcase ideal for the introduction of safe and sustainable products


CTE SpA is participating at Apex show in Maastricht (NL) on June, 4-6. In the outdoor area, both 1480 (180 m2), we have on display 3 models launched recently.

The main protagonist at our booth is MP 20 Ev full electric truck-mounted platform. Then we have on display, to reiterate our goal of offering the market ever greener solutions, our spiderlift TRACCESS 160E full electric. There are also MP 24 C, the multipurpose truck-mounted platform of 24 m of working height, and the stairclimber PIANOPLAN VERTICAL, to meet the needs of small transport.


CTE MP 20 Ev has been designed to ensure access and use on construction sites and areas with limited gas and noise emissions, offering maximum work and safety performance. CTE MP 20 Ev is the first truck-mounted platform full-electric with 20 m of working height mounted on 3.5 tons. A large investment by CTE SpA as a leader in the lifting market to make completely electric vehicles that respect the environment, to work in historic centers, green areas, sustainable construction sites, even at night thanks to the complete silence of the vehicles and of the platform.

This model reaches 20 m of working height, 13 m of outreach and 250 kg of capacity.

With double arm configuration, 1 of which is telescopic + jib, totally designed, engineered, and manufactured in Italy with CTE and SSAB Technology.

Ground console with wireless remote and integrated display for wires free operations, basket console with the same Look-n-Feel of the ground console, integrated display, for easy learning and familiarization for the operator. It is equipped with the state-of-the-art control system CTE S3 EVO, the smart and safe management system of CTE aerial platforms, awarded at the IAPA 2022 with the Technological Innovation award, which allows end users a work experience in complete safety with maximum performance, and for fleet managers, easy, direct and optimized vehicle control. This model is mounted on e-carry Green-G full electric truck. The vehicle’s range is up 70 km (WLTP) and 25 work cycles (sample usage data; transfer performance and work cycles vary depending on the mode of use). The power supply system offers the advantage of being able to work entirely on battery or in ‚plugged-in‘ mode connected to the mains with the supplied charging device (220V / 380V).


CTE TRACCESS 160 E, the full-electric version of the CTE TRACCESS 160. The distinctive feature of this model is the 48V / 9.5 kWh lithium battery for reach the charge capacity necessary to meet the needs of a working day, with the 48V / 50 Hz battery charger that allows fast recharging.

To complete the configuration and make it an extraordinary equipment for its category are the completely electronic system with double CAN BUS line, the radio controls with graphic display that acts as a control station on the ground and in the basket, and the „rise & drive“ function. This function of the jib allows translation with the jib raised to increase the angle of attack and thus access construction sites with difficult access while maintaining its stability.

As for the CTE TRACCESS 160, some automatic functions, generally available on top of the range models, are available as standard on this model: automatic stabilization, open jib while transition, self-centering and Home Function.  Moreover, also basket levelling, ramps, proportional maneuvers, double travel speed, lowering and widening of the tracks.

The main technical features: 16m of working height, 7,9 m of outreach and 250 kg of capacity in the whole working area. In summary, CTE TRACCESS 160 E is the self-propelled tracked platform completely ecological and with zero emissions, ideal for applications in closed environments or where the use of internal combustion engines is not allowed.



MP means Multipurpose, 24 representing 24 m of working height, C is for compact to highlight its limited size right down to the name: working height 24 m, outreach 14 m, capacity max 250 kg.

Mounted on the Iveco Daily truck, in transport position it measures less than 6.4 m in length and 2.8 m in height. The boom is made up of a double telescopic and jib, and is the first notable detail that is seen as an innovation, that identifies it.  Its particular configuration guarantees the possibility of an up-and over of 10.5m and to work in a negative position, with jib excursion up to 105°. The basket has a front attachment and is clear underneath. The capacity is max 250 kg.

A highlight is the new man-machine interface with the S3 EVO control console, the most advanced technology for the real-time performance management system of aerial platforms. Thanks to S3 EVO, every single maneuver is controlled by the system which, through the graphics integrated on the display, indicates which maneuver is permitted. All this to ensure the operator can work in absolute safety. The stabilization, managed by S3 EVO, is variable and features front stabilizers with hydraulic extension of the crossbars to work in shape and out of shape and rear stabilizers fixed in shape. CTE Connect allows you to access remote diagnostics, to geolocate the vehicle even when in motion, to remotely set some work parameters such as those combined with the Virtual Roof system, and to manage the platform for fleet management functions with users and passwords customized.



Our main theme has been electrification: with the full electric models MP 20 Ev and TRACCESS 160E, we showed the best way to work with zero emissions, allowing applications in indoor areas or areas with limited gas and noise emissions.

This year, more than ever, companies have to overcome challenges such as digitization, safer and more sustainable construction sites, and thus keep up with the changes in the world of technology and environment.

For CTE SpA acting in an ethical and responsible way, aware that our activities and choices are reflected in the environment, the people and the society in which we operate, is an essential mission.

Starting with this awareness, in the development and supply of its products and services, for several years CTE has been committed to making its contribution to the protection of the environment and responding to the contingent needs of the market for aerial platforms capable of carrying out urban maintenance activities with reduced emissions of harmful gases and noise pollution.

A vision that is strengthened with the creation of a special project by the company called GREEN INNOVATION which include all corporate activities related to the area of sustainability.
