Service around the globe
Existing elevator installations on ships can easily be upgraded to bring them in line with the latest standards. Our specialists are well informed as regards the components offered by all leading manufacturers and have access to a global network of tried and trusted cooperation partners. When it comes to repairing or modernising outdated marine elevators, the original manufacturer is immaterial. The decisive criterion is that the lift has a 100 per cent LUTZ elevator quality rating upon completion. Within the specified parameters, we will modernise your elevator according to your wishes. We are familiar with all the visa requirements, our service technicians are certified for offshore operations and provide support to classification societies like DNV-GL, Lloyd’s Register, Bureau Veritas etc. when conducting initial and periodic inspections. Our LUTZ control system makes it possible to modernise virtually every elevator system. The spare parts and components for this system can be purchased on the market and are not exclusively available at LUTZ Elevators. Modernised elevator control systems can be serviced by any specialised lift technician. This provides complete transparency for the customer, allowing him to compare the market and make an independent decision based on commercial grounds. We offer modification kits designed specifically for hydraulically operated lifts to minimise the lift’s operating noise and significantly improve the elevator’s performance. We strive to achieve unique quality using standard components. Our elevators are manufactured based on an open system, meaning that your ship will never be kept waiting for a rare replacement part as it travels the seven seas to its next destination. In the event that we have entered into a maintenance contract for a third-party elevator brand, you can be certain that our highly qualified team of experts will contact the original manufacturer in advance to ensure that any specific spare parts will be available as quickly as possible. You can rely on our global logistics service to provide all the necessary spare parts – whether they are delivered by land, sea or air – to ensure that your vessel leaves port on schedule. Primary spare parts such as travelling cables, main wire rope hoists, processor units and frequency controllers are available at short notice. We will gladly handle German customs clearance on your behalf. Spare part replacement can be carried out by our qualified LUTZ assembly team anywhere in the world – both onshore and offshore.
