Alimak Group has signed a contract for a vertical access maintenance solution for Battersea Power Station with an order value of approximately MSEK 21

Battersea Project Phase 2 Development Company Limited has signed a contract with CoxGomyl in the UK for a vertical access solution project based on BMUs, worth MSEK 21. The BMUs will be installed at the regenerated Battersea Power Station. 

Battersea Power Station, which was fully decommissioned in 1983, is being redeveloped as part of an eight-phased project. CoxGomyl successfully installed the BMU systems in Phase 1 of the development and has now been awarded the contract for Phase 2.

The second phase’s solution includes several short reach roof mounted Building Maintenance Units, as well as internal gantry and monorail systems and service, support and maintenance during the construction phase. This enables full access for maintenance purposes on the mixed-use development on the south bank of the Thames which will be home to Apple’s new London Campus, 253 new residential homes and a 6-acre park.

The equipment will be supplied and installed from the end of 2018 to the beginning of 2020.

“We are very pleased to be working for the second time on Battersea Power Station with Battersea Phase 2 Development Company Limited and with their construction Manager MACE, with whom we have a long and successful history of projects. CoxGomyl UK installed the BMU systems on Phase 1 of the development and were again the preferred bidder for custom solutions designed to support reliable, safe and efficient access to complex structures. With our deep knowledge and experience as global market leader in the BMU segment, we could once again meet the high performance criteria required by the customer”, says Tormod Gunleiksrud, CEO Alimak Group.
