Designing and building new marine elevators to suit a ship’s unique requirements is a service we have developed after years of servicing and repairing other manufacturers’ elevators to perform like new again. As manufacturers of new marine elevators under Mr. Marine name, we have positioned ourselves as a customizer.
Furthermore, we use standard, modular-designed components to build one-of-a-kind elevators, specifically for the space and usage requirements of each vessel.
We do not offer standard off-the-shelf products. We therefore are working together with a renowned Dutch design agency and we consider each aspect of the required look and functionality to produce a design sketch for our customer’s approval or suggestions. Moreover, once the completed design is approved by our customer, we obtain class society approval (DNV, ABS, LR, GL, BV, RINA, NK and KR) to assure you of compliance with all applicable regulations and standards.
Some specific features of our new ships’ elevators:
We installed our Mr. Marine Elevator branded elevators for Zakum Development Company (ZADCO) at the Zakum oil field, north-west of the Abu Dhabi Islands. It is truly an international collaboration: a Dutch-designed marine elevator using European components (from Italy, the UK and the Netherlands), assembled in the Netherlands and installed on board off the coast of Abu Dhabi.
Mr. Marine Elevator has engineered and manufactured a broad range of marine elevators with the following basic specifications:
The traction machine is driven by a squirrel cage induction motor and provided with an electromagnetic brake acting on the coupling between the gear and the motor. To prevent vibration from the hull, we equipped an isolation pad with the traction machine foundation. The general motor specifications are:
LANDING DOORS (fire-proof)
We design all our landing doors especially for marine elevators. This means the doors are designed and fire-tested for Class A-0 and A-60 divisions in accordance with SOLAS. Furthermore, type approval certificates for each type have been issued by most national marine authorities and major classification societies.
The control panel placed in the elevator machine room contains the main Inverter, PC boards, relays, rolling/pitching switch and relevant equipment for operation.
We provide each landing door with an electromechanical lock connected in series with the safety circuit. Hence, the elevator car cannot be started or kept in motion unless every lending door is fully closed and locked in compliance with safety requirements.
If the car travelling speed exceeds the specified upper limit, the speed governor is activated, turning off the drive motor and activating the emergency stop device on the outer frame of the car, whereby the car is stopped and secured to the rails.
EMERGENCY EXIT SWITCH
If the emergency exit door in the ceiling is opened, the power disconnect switch is turned off, preventing the car from moving.
SAFETY DEVICE (for car and counterweight)
Mr. Marine Elevator provides safety devices under the car and counterweight. At the moment of emergency (such as dropping the car or counterweight), the safety relay with speed governor is operated by gripping the guide rails.
CAR DOOR SWITCH
This switch prevents the car from starting unless the car doors are completely closed. The switch is connected to a safety line.
As soon as the drive motor is turned off, a spring-loaded DC magnetic brake is applied to the motor.
This light provided on the ceiling is illuminated as soon as a power failure takes place.
Spring buffers are mounted in the elevator pit area at the bottom of the elevator trunk, under the car and counterweight.
