Following a very special request that has been presented to TBV Marine Systems, we have been selected for the development and production of an elevator solution that shall be able to put people on the ice from one of the higher decks of an icebreaker vessel.

After the presentation of our initial design and project plan, and showing our unique technical capabilities by thinking outside the box to combine newly developed technologies with existing solutions, TBV has shown to be the most suitable party to provide a solution for such a specialized marine application.

Primary challenges to which we have provided the answers are the environmental challenges (temperature vs. materials) and enabling the horizontal and vertical movements of the outboard elevator.
