We are regularly asked to replace existing outdoor elevators from other suppliers with a HYDRO-CON system, as our products are characterized by being resistant to the hard Scandinavian climate and their long lifespan. This replacement in Juelsminde was done in 1 day!
Replacement of outdoor elevator
HYDRO-CON A/S was contacted by a housing association in Juelsminde, Denmark, concerning their existing outdoor elevator. It had been installed almost 5 years ago and had countless problems with it being unstable and starting erode which resulted in downtime. For the same reason, they were on the market for a new solution.
As a total supplier, we were able to offer an extra good discount on an alle encompassing project plan, where we took care of everything, from dismantling, environmentally correct scrapping, production of the elevator, transportation, craning it in and installation.
We compledet the dismantling and installation of the new elevator in just one working day with minimal inconvenience to the residents.
Removal of existing elevator
HYDRO-CON was responsible for uninstalling and dismantling the existing installation. It was done by the help of our skilled professionals and a freight company. The lift was quickly removed and placed on the truck so that it did not disturb the occupants. Next, it was driven to HYDRO-CON's production facilities to be separated and divided into components so that it could be appropriately scrapped in accordance to sustianability and the environment.
Replacement to a HYDRO-CON elevator
Likewise, the new HYDRO-CON elevator was transported fully assembled to the installation site by means of a freight company (see left in the picture).
There are several advantages to choosing a Danish manufacturer such as HYDRO-CON, for example, we know the conditions that the outdoor products must be able to withstand. Therefore, our outdoor products are characterized by their endurance to the sometimes tough Scandinavian climate, high quality, and long lifespan. We installed the first outdoor elevators more than 25 years ago and they are still running.
It can also be an advantage with a Danish manufacturer in terms of service and repairs, as long waits for spare parts to be ordered from abroad are avoided.
New installation of HYDRO-CON elevator
The new HYDRO-CON elevator was installed in a couple of hours. All our elevators indoors as well as outdoors are supplied in their own self-supporting shaft. This makes the elevator especially well-suited to "drop & go" without adaptations of the surroundings.
The shaft and cabin are assembled and pre-tested before being shipped to the installation site. At the installation site, the elevator can simply be moved into the building, after which our skilled fitters attach and commission the installation. Next, we initiate regulatory approval of the facility, which we have booked in advance, and takes approx. 1 hour.
In this way, dismantling, replacement, and commissioning of a new outdoor elevator for the housing association in Juelsminde was done in just 1 day!
3 clear benefits for the customer
The housing association in Juelsminde attained 3 clear advantages in choosing HYDRO-CON as their partner, in particular a total package solution, time saved, and a solution that lasts.
By choosing a total supplier who could offer a total package solution, the housing association did not have to be coordinator on, various suppliers for demolition, scrap, production and assembly. They only needed to relate to one supplier. For the same reason, a lot of time could be saved, as there was no coordination between multiple companies and stakeholders, which also meant minimal disturbance to the residents. Last but not least, they got an elevator solution that meets their original expectations, and hopefully will run smoothly without any downtime for many years to come.
