The lifting equipment of the new Niederfinow ship lift system operates on the counterweight principle. SIEMAG TECBERG is contributing to this project its decades of experience with counterweight systems in mining. Thanks to the counterweight principle the installed capacity of the drive for lifting and lowering the approx. 10,000 t ship’s caisson can be kept low.
Caisson (length x breadth x depth)
125.5 m x 12.5 m x 4.0 m
ca. 10,000 t
Double rope rollers (number x diameter)
112 off x 4.0
