ChainCaster supplied 120 D8 Plus 500kg chain hoists for the stadium, used for the final itself.

The Lomonosov Moscow State University has also invested in equipment from ChainMaster, including four D8 Jumbo Lifts (the 6t model) to manoeuvre its heavyweight video cube into position, and a D8 manual control for the installation.

Four VarioLift 500 hoists and four VarioTrolleys have also been in use in Moscow, while in St Petersburg, eight 500kg VarioLifts have been installed in the Mariinsky Theatre, in addition to a mobile PC control system with the new XYZ Controller.

Other users of ChainMaster hoist systems in St Petersburg include the Ice Palace, which boasts four 6,000kg Jumbo Lifts as well as a C1 manual controller, used for installation work, and the Sport Palace in Nizhniy Novgorod, which ordered a PC control system with four 1,250kg VarioLifts for installation of the arena’s video cube.

A similar ChainMaster chain hoist system is in use at the Porsche Arena in Stuttgart and the SAP Arena in Mannheim.

The newly reconstructed Forum Hall in Baku, in the capital of Azerbaijan, meanwhile, received two mobile manual control systems accompanied by 16 (in one case) and 24 (in the other) 500kg BGV-C1 chain hoists. These have already been deployed at a variety of events in the Forum Hall Metropole on the Caspian Sea.
