Lödige Singapore delivers a 30 ton truck lift for Marina One



Singapore, August 2016 - The Marina Bay area will see a new addition to its skyline come 2017 with the completion of the $7 billion MARINA ONE - a Khazanah - Temasek mixed development project. Marina One is one of two projects undertaken by M+S Pte Ltd, the 60:40 joint ventures between Khazanah Nasional and Temasek Holdings, as part of a land swap deal between Singapore and Malaysia. Together, the projects have a development value of $11 billion.

Marina One will be an integrated development that marries commerce, premier residential living and exciting retail lifestyles in the Marina Bay district, offering investors and businesses a slice of exlusivity in the heart of Singapore's new Central Business District (CBD). It will define new standards of luxury urban living in Singapore, creating a benchmark for international excellence in design and sustainability.” said Tan Sri Azman Yahya.

Marina One is one of the first developments of its type to integrate soft landscape into the fabric of the building. As a new high-rise mixed-use development in Singapore, it combines a lush public garden with waterfalls, reflecting pools, rooftop gardens, and a cloud garden.

The complex is designed by Ingenhoven Architects (Germany), known for its sustainable buildings with two towers of residences as Marina One Residences, one tower of retails as The Heart and one tower of Grade A Office. A Korean consortium of Hyundai Engineering & Construction and GS Engineering and Construction were appointed as the main contractors for Marina One Project. Other companies involved in the project include Architects61, Beca Carter Hollings & Ferner, Langdon & Seah, Gustafson Porter, ICN Design and Arup.

The Lödige Group, an experienced lifts specialist, has delivered a 30 ton truck lift for Marina One in Singapore. The lift vertically transfers heavy trucks between the ground floor and basement levels to a depth of 9 metres. The upper and lower scissor arms of the truck lift are made from torsion-resistant steel sections and fit alongside one another when platform is lowered. Between the scissor arms four pairs of hydraulic cylinders are mounted on universal joints. The hydraulic cylinders extend the scissor arms to achieve the lifting function.

For over 60 years, Lödige has developed and delivered a wide range of specialist lifting platforms. Our heavy duty industrial truck lifts can reach a maximum height of 12.5 metres and lift up to 100 tons. Simple operation and high reliability are key characteristics of our design.

Jeff Read, Managing Director of Lödige Asia said "This project required an innovative solution to a practical problem: How to provide basement access to heavy vehicles when there is simply no space for a ramp. The client architectural team recognized the simplicity of our approach, and we worked with them to properly integrate the truck lift in to the building design. Manufactured in our German factory and then disassembled for shipping, this truck lift sets a new standard for specialist engineering in the region."
