Innovative New Marine Elevator by Alimak

Alimak is proud to announce the launch of a new cutting-edge Marine Elevator. The ALIMAK ME is designed specifically for marine applications including passenger and freight elevator transportation across a range of marine vessels.

Built on Alimak’s renowned traction technology, the new ALIMAK ME marine elevator is available in two car sizes, features loading capacities of up to 1,600 kg and has superior ride comfort, all without the need for a machine room.

Progressive safety mechanisms were at the forefront of the design process of the elevator. A high-quality, reinforced carbon steel car frame was manufactured to be compliant with European regulations and the car is available with the option of hot dip galvanization for use in high humidity areas.

Alimak factored in emergency scenarios, including an escape hatch in the ceiling of the car as well as an emergency escape ladder and LED roof lighting with emergency diodes. The landing doors are specially reinforced for marine application in even the most extreme conditions.

Alimak ME marine elevators are compliant with EN81-20/50, ISO 8383, DNV Rules for lifts and 2014/33/EU regulations. The elevators are standardised and designed according to client’s optimal shaft utilization and fit for purpose.

Industrial vessels are often found in harsh environments, and any effective marine elevator therefore needs to be capable of handling tough weather conditions as well as unavoidable roll, pitch and heave as specified in ISO8383. Alimak’s marine elevators can be relied upon during their lifetime.

Since 1974, Alimak has supplied elevators for the marine and offshore market and continues to invest in new technologies and concepts with the aim of improving the productivity and sustainability of the industry.

The new ALIMAK ME marine elevator is due to be launched at Interlift 2019. See the launch at the Alimak stand #4011, Hall 4.
