Everest Engineering Equipment introduced the world's largest passenger hoist, with a remarkable 3.2-ton capacity and twin cages of a total 6.4 tons. What makes it stand out is its operation on a single mast, offering a unique and specialized solution. The hoist's cage length is adjustable from 4m to 3.6m or 3.2m, eliminating the need for separate hoists for different lengths.

This hoist provides two speeds: 46 meters per minute with a 3.2-ton capacity, and if the capacity is reduced by 500 kilograms, the speed can increase to 63 meters per minute. This flexibility is a unique feature, representing a significant innovation from GJJ, a globally renowned brand present in every country worldwide.

“We have analysed the market requirements for lifting facades, special side windows/doors, large-size marbles, industrial applications, etc., over the last 20 years. This hoist will be an efficient and reliable solution for these applications. Additionally, it can carry 38 personnel when used within the 3.2t mode and can accommodate 32 personnel in the 2.7t mode, reducing the need for multiple trips of the hoist. As an all-in-one hoist, it contributes to steel savings, thereby reducing carbon emissions and contributing to environmental sustainability," informed P V Ramdev, Managing Director, Everest Engineering Equipment.

“The hoist exceeds European safety standards, earning a CE certificate, highlighting our commitment to stringent safety requirements for transporting individuals at heights. Our standard passenger hoist is fully equipped to reach up to the heights of 500 meters. We have a dedicated safety department, which sets us apart from many other companies. Adhering to ISO 45001 safety standards has been a crucial aspect of our operations, leading to our successful collaboration with Tata Steel in Kalinganagar, where we supplied four units while maintaining the highest safety standards. Our safety measures are aligned with European standards, ensuring a secure solution for human transportation at elevated levels. This commitment reflects our dedication to delivering top-quality products and services in the construction industry,” he added.

Everest Engineering’s innovations extend to its Research and Development Center in India, where it continuously incorporates AI solutions to meet market demands and further decrease power consumption. In partnership with GJJ, its latest hoist model achieved a significant 35% reduction in power consumption. The company’s upcoming manufacturing plant near Mumbai (operating under a license agreement with GJJ), is nearing completion and is set to be operational in 8 to 9 months.

“The construction industry is currently witnessing substantial growth, and we project an annual growth rate of approximately 20%. This upward trend is anticipated to persist for the next 10 to 15 years, although external factors, such as changes in the central government ministry, may impact growth. Currently, we import from different countries, but now Indian manufacturers are starting to build their own facilities. This move towards local production is good, and we expect a big drop in imports. We believe that in the next 8 to 10 years, India will be able to make various construction equipment within the country,” said Ramdev.

Everest Engineering Equipment specialises in manufacturing passenger and material hoists, tower cranes, and tower crane anti-collision systems. It also offers a diverse range of rebar processing machines, including CNC-based machines such as stirrup benders, pile cage machines, and GJJ machines. It is also in the process of launching gantries for building bridges, working on high-speed railways, metro projects, and creating straddle carriers, and heavy modular transporters. “Our goal is to present a complete range of products and highlight our service abilities to the Indian industry. Our products and manufacturing processes also align with our dedication to sustainable and energy-efficient practices,” added Ramdev.
