Alimak industrial elevators based on rack-and-pinion or traction technology provide overhaul, maintenance and inspection services for power plants all over the world. The rack-and-pinion elevators are designed to operate in demanding industrial environments, outdoors or indoors and need no shafts or elevator rooms. They can easily be fitted on new as well as existing structures. Alimak traction elevators are the convenient alternative giving superior ride comfort in applications where a shaft is installed.
Every power plant is striving towards:
In a power plant, it is of paramount importance to identify potential sources of failure to provide preventive maintenance and - should an unplanned production stop occur - to be able to quickly respond to the failure.
