Geda hoists assist Kaktus Towers construction

Two Geda hoists have been used to help construction of the new Kaktus Towers in Denmark.
The Kaktus Towers, which are located in the centre of Copenhagen, Denmark, comprise two towers and a base section that together house 495 apartments.
Contractor LM Byg, upon completing the structure’s shell, installed a passenger and material lift on each of the building’s two towers, which measured 80m and 60 tall respectively.
Rental company TS Platform & Hejs provided two Geda Multilift P22 Premium platforms with a transport height of up to 200m for the project.
Utlising a single mast, the Multilift P22 Premium model offers a load capacity of up to 2,000kg or 22 passengers, with a lifting speed of 54 metres per minute.
The platform also measures just 1.40m x 3.20m x 2.10m. The small footprint meant that, unlike larger hoists, no additional foundations need to be poured.
The standard version of GEDA Multilift P22 is equipped with an automatic control that can be upgraded with a landing pre-selection control or a call control from the landing level.
The Kaktus Towers project also saw the installation of a Geda 2 PK on one of the site’s cranes. The 200kg capacity crane operator hoist allows up to two people to be safely transported up the crane to the operator’s cab.
The hoist can reach a height of up to 150m at a speed of 24 metres per minute, allowing crane operators to avoid climbing up the crane and eradicating the risk of a fall from height.
