Ports and Shipyards

In an industry where profits are dependent on a consistent flow of operations, the time-cost and safety risks associated with climbing ladders can be excessive. Ports and shipyards experience significantly greater output when essential crane components and machinery can be accessed rapidly for maintenance and repairs.  

Alimak industrial elevators increase productivity and foster safer operations in ports and shipyards around the world. Frequently used to transport passengers to the top of a crane in just two minutes, an Alimak industrial elevator provides an efficient vertical access solution.

Alimak industrial elevators drive productivity in range of applications on ports and shipyards including rubber-tired gantry cranes, ship-to-shore cranes, ship unloaders, rail-mounted gantry cranes, drydocks, goliath cranes, silos and warehouses.
