Alimak Hek helps with restoration of ancient art treasure in Florence

Baptistery of San Giovanni, Florence, Italy

A HEK TPL 500 Transport Platform was used during the restoration of the art treasure Baptistery of San Giovanni in Florence, Italy.

The HEK TPL 500 Transport Platform was used during the restoration of the façade and the lantern at the ancient Baptistery of San Giovanni in Florence, Italy. With a lifting height of 24 meters, the transport platform was used to transport people and materials on nine different levels of the scaffolding covering the outer walls of the monument.

The restoration is financed by the Opera di Santa Maria del Fiore. The project, which has a cost of approximately two million euros, will eliminate deposits of pollutants and help consolidate the marble elements. The Florence Baptistery is one of the most ancient churches in the city.

HEK TPL Transport Platforms are specifically designed for smaller construction projects with limited space and where less payload capacity is required. Payload capacities vary from 300 to 2,000 kg and the machines are available in five different configurations.
