Demag helps keep Sydney Aquarium sparkling

Easy and safe … Demag’s DC-Pro chain hoists


The Sydney Aquarium has installed two Demag hoists to help with cleaning and maintenance of its underwater tanks.

A major tourist attraction, the Sydney Aquarium at Darling Harbour, boasts more than 12,000 aquatic animals from 650 species. The aquarium features amazing underwater tunnels and boasts the world's largest Great Barrier Reef exhibit.

The Aquarium features one of the world's largest collections of sharks, rare dugongs, elusive platypuses, beautiful seahorses, playful penguins, giant turtles, jellyfish, thousands of tropical fish, gigantic stingrays and more.

Keeping the aquarium clean and moving the animals is an ongoing job, and it is of utmost importance that the animals are moved safely.

Two Demag DC-Pro chain hoists including pendants and a KBK-25 catenary system are relied on to make it as easy and safe as possible.

The Demag chain hoists are installed in the two main tanks and are used to move animals and gear in and out of the tanks for cleaning, maintenance and for when animals need to be relocated.

The tanks are generally cleaned every second day.

“The Demag hoists and cranes play a major role in the upkeep of the aquarium, says Paul Eager, curatorial supervisor, Sydney Aquarium.

“They are used during the drive cleans to move gravel and animals and also used for boat removal, he says. “We clean within a set period of time so we need to know the products will work every time. The reliability and track record of Demag provides that peace of mind.”

The major benefit of working with Demag is the company’s knowledge, staff experience and a great back-up service.

“With Demag you get the people who know the product and it’s extremely reliable,” says Mr Eager.  

“When we use our cranes it is important that they work and with Demag we know they will.”
