Three Alimak SC 65/32 DOL and two Alimak SC 45 FC dual-car passenger and material hoists were used during the construction of eleven high-rise buildings in the Huangdu Residential Area, located in Shanghai, China. With payload capacities of 2000 kg per car, and lifting heights of up to 100 m, the hoists provided fast and efficient vertical access during concrete construction of the towers.
As a major residential project, Huangdu #3 will involve the construction of 1906 apartments spread over four 18-storey, two 25-storey and five 26-storey residential buildings. The Shanghai No.5 Construction Company (a subsidiary of the Shanghai Construction Group), the third largest construction company in China and sixteenth largest in the world, is responsible for construction of the project, which will include more than 188576 square metres of floorspace.
Huangdu #3 is one of the first projects in the world to utiliSe the newly launched Alimak SC 65/32 construction hoist. The SC 65/32 is specially designed to meet the needs of construction and rental companies working in new and emerging markets such as China, offering efficiency, safety, reduced energy consumption, higher speeds and greater lifting heights, all with a low total cost of ownership. The Shanghai No.5 Construction Company was extremely pleased with the performance, speed and reliability of the new machines, said Alimak.
Alimak construction hoists have been used for over 50 years in a wide range of applications, from industrial and mining complexes, chimneys and bridges, through to new building construction and refurbishment on some of the world’s tallest structures.
