Spotlight on Real-Life Applications

Service Operation Vessels (SOVs) 
Alimak’s innovation is showcased in our project for Service Operation Vessels used in wind farm operations. Understanding the unique challenges of SOVs, which require reliable and efficient personnel transfer to wind turbines, Alimak provided a custom vertical access solution. This installation has not only improved operational efficiency by facilitating smoother crew and cargo movements, but it has also significantly enhanced safety, reducing the risk associated with high-frequency transfers in variable sea conditions.

The Svanen Crane Ship 
A testament to Alimak’s engineering prowess is evident in our project on the Svanen crane ship. The crane ship, pivotal in constructing notable infrastructures such as the Øresund Bridge, was equipped with two Alimak rack and pinion elevators. This crucial addition provided reliable and efficient access to crane operating stations, significantly enhancing the crew’s operational capabilities and safety, streamlining project timelines, and reducing downtime.

Alimak’s dedication to aiding the marine industry through innovative and reliable vertical access solutions exemplifies the company’s role as an industry leader.
