Power Plants

A reliable and efficient means of vertical transport is essential for power plants where access to elevated equipment is required multiple times a day for inspections and monitoring. Alimak’s industrial elevators enhance safety and productivity by eliminating the need to climb stairs at power plants to provide a reliable vertical access solution.

Alimak helps to overcome the previously insurmountable challenges associated with vertical access for gas, refused and coal fired plants, combined-cycle hydroelectric, solar and nuclear facilities.
