CTE consolidates its presence in the Middle East with an important sale of 10 million euros with the region of Kurdistan

One of the most important partners of CTE Spa, Ster Group, coordinated a huge trade agreement with the Kurdistan Region of Iraq territory to purchase a big fleet of truck-mounted telescopic platforms brand B-LIFT produced and arranged by CTE Spa from 15 to 27 meters of working height. This important agreement was signed by the Iraqi ministry of electricity for a total value of over 10 million euros.

The purchase want to achieve some sites located in the main Kurdish city of Erbil, Sulaymaniya and Duhok to cope with complex infrastructure works that in the last 10 years are livening up the area, including airports and the construction of power lines. The delivery platform will be by the end of 2012.

The fleet consists of 266 truck-mounted platforms with working heights in a range between 15 meters to 27 meters. This enormous task has also renewed and strengthened the decennial relationship between CTE and Iveco, suppliers selected for trucks, as all platforms will be set up on Daily 65 in 4×2 and off-road version.

It is not only a great result for sales, but also in political / social terms it is exciting giving support with our product to the development of a region that is making strides to get closer to modernity. It’s fascinating and at the same time a great responsibility “.
