Situated 210 metres below Lake Manapōuri, the elevator is the key access route to the main machine hall and is the second-longest travel lift in New Zealand. It is essential for the lift to be maintained and in an operating function as it is also integral to emergency evacuation.
As part of a recent modernisation upgrade, the elevator to the machine hall had to be re-roped. Siemens partnered with Brugg and Schindler to develop a specialised solution. Providing a full-steel premium rope with high breaking loads, the upgrade will ensure the elevator is a safe means of transportation for all employees in the machine hall.
