From Moscow With Love
54 BGV-C1 SIL3 VarioLifts for the Kremlin State Palace

25 years sin­ce the mar­ket launch of Chain­Mas­ter pro­duc­ts, the Saxon-based com­pa­ny has deve­lo­ped into one of the world’s lea­ding manu­fac­tu­rers of hoist tech­no­lo­gy in the event indus­try, offe­ring a com­pre­hen­si­ve ran­ge of pro­duc­ts for all requi­re­ments from set-up ope­ra­ti­ons to com­plex sce­nic move­ments to the com­ple­te auto­ma­ti­on of per­for­man­ces in thea­tres and ope­ra houses around the glo­be.

In 2004 Chain­Mas­ter foun­ded the Con­sul­ting Office Rus­sia / EAEU under the lea­dership of Sla­wa Ser­dyu­kov. Over the past 15 years, the sales net­work has been expan­ded and nume­rous pro­jec­ts suc­cess­ful­ly imple­men­ted, inclu­ding the Zarya­dye Con­cert Hall, the Heli­con Thea­ter and the 2014 Olym­pic Games in Sochi.

Ano­t­her excep­tio­nal pro­ject in the area of thea­t­re instal­la­ti­on is the reno­va­ti­on of the over sta­ge machine­ry in the Krem­lin Sta­te Palace Thea­t­re in Moscow. In 2003, Chain­Mas­ter deli­ve­r­ed a com­pu­ter-con­trol­led chain hoist sys­tem, which, after 15 years of reli­able work, was repla­ced in 2018 by the cur­rent XYZ Con­trol Sys­tem that com­plies with SIL3. The sys­tem inclu­des 40 Chain­Mas­ter BGV-C1 SIL3 Vario­Lifts with a load capa­ci­ty of 500 kg and infi­ni­te­ly varia­ble speed of 0–19 m / min at a lif­ting height of 35 m.

The XYZ Con­trol Sys­tem, which is cer­ti­fied for sce­nic ope­ra­ti­on, was modi­fied at the customer’s request and con­sists of two inde­pendent­ly ope­ra­ting con­trol units, which can be con­nec­ted to several plug-in points in the thea­t­re. This year, the thea­t­re is expan­ding the chain hoist sys­tem by a fur­ther 14 iden­ti­cal dri­ves to a total of 54 chain hoists. The tech­ni­cal exe­cu­ti­on is being car­ri­ed out by the part­ner com­pa­nies SIM and Stroy­scirc and should be com­ple­ted by the end of the year.
