Video: special conversion of elevator on a old cruise vessel

August 4, 2010 by m.brandt@lift-emotion.eu

Lift Emotion has successfully converted a existing elevator system and placed a retractable sundeck box. Due to the low level of bridges it is not possible to have a normal elevator trunk on the vessel. In order to enter these particular routes the yard asked Lift Emotion BV to design produce and install a system that allows the crew to lower the sundeck trunk. During the time that the sundeck trunk is down the elevator must be operational for the other decks.

By means of 3 movable rings it was possible to reduce the height of 3.4 meter to 1.2 meter staying 0.1 meter within the demanded maximum height of 1.3 meter.
The sundeck door is placed in a special frame and can placed horizontal on the sundeck.

The challenge was lack of space and working with elevator technique and controls of more than 20 years old. Lifting of the retractable sundeck trunk is realized by means of the elevator hydraulics with a push to drive control. The Landing door is placed in a special frame that allows the door to be placed horizontal by means of a hydraulic pump.
