The Alimak Marine Elevator 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.

The elevator consists of a high quality, reinforced carbon steel car frame with progressive safety gear in accordance to European regulations and is available with the option of hot dip galvanization, suitable for high humidity areas.

Emergency scenarios have been factored in with an escape hatch in the ceiling of the elevator car, an emergency escape ladder and LED roof lighting with emergency diodes. The landing doors are specially reinforced for marine application and for installation in the welded shaft.

Alimak ME marine elevators comply 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, 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.

Alimak has supplied elevators for the marine and offshore market since 1974 and continues to invest in new technologies and concepts to improve the productivity and sustainability of the industry.
