Alimak Hek Introduces Fully Modular Scando 650 for Offshore Applications

Bridgeport, CT- Alimak Hek, the world's leading manufacturer of Rack & Pinion driven equipment for vertical transportation, recently unveiled its Scando 650 for both construction and permanent access in offshore applications. The Scando 650 offers a large number of possible configurations with different doors and gates, speeds and payload capacities.

A fully modular vertical transport solution, the Alimak Scando 650 hoist offers a high level of flexibility, as it is available in various configurations including different doors and gates, drive units (a two-motor DOL and two- or three-motor FC), speeds (up to 65 m/min) and payload capacities. This flexibility ensures that the Scando 650 can be configured to fit virtually any customer application. What's more, it can be done with relatively few modules and components, meaning that reconfiguring the unit is fast and simple.

The three available motors, which drive the system through a high efficiency gearbox, provide more hoist power while using as much as 40% less power than previous Scando models. Available in single- or twin-car configurations, the Scando 650 offers payloads of 1500 to 3200 kg/car and has a standard maximum lifting height of 400 meters, which can be increased upon request.

The Scando 650 has already received substantial industry attention, as Morrow Equipment, the leading tower-crane rental company in North America, has ordered 20 new Alimak construction hoists. The deal is believed to be one of the largest construction hoist orders in the US.
