First Scando for Dubai
08 May 2008
Khansaheb Civil Engineering LLC ordered Alimak's first ‘top of the range’hoist in the Middle East, a Scando 650, to help overcome site constraints and fast track construction of Dubai's Al Rostamani Tower.
The Scando 650 is available in single or twin car configuration as a modular system that can adapt to different applications using relatively few modules and components. It offers payloads of 1.6 to 3.2 tonnes per car and has a standard maximum lifting height of 250 m, which can be increased to 400 m if required.
A twin cage Scando 22/32 DOL with a lifting height of 80 m and a speed of 40 m/min is being used on the Al Rostamani project to overcome noise restrictions and allow overnight working. Construction of the 79 m high tower started in June 2004 and is scheduled for completion in August this year. The mixed commercial office and residential building features three basement levels, a ground floor, two mezzanine levels and plus 14 storeys. The external facade will be glass clad with granite features.
