Deutsche Oper Berlin
After SBS won the contract to upgrade the overstage machinery in May 2013, the work was realised in 2013 and 2014. Initially, the machinery of both side stages and the main backstage engines were overhauled. The main stage then followed in 2014, involving 60 mechanical hoists each with a payload of 750 kg, 20 point hoists with a payload of 500 kg and 4 heavy-duty point hoists with a payload of 2,000 kg. A total of 200 tonnes of steel was dismantled and around 500 tonnes of new material fitted. The wind and thunder machines were also replaced or upgraded and, together with the other 183 drive shafts, integrated into the COSTACOwin stage controls.
In November 2014, the renovation of the overstage machinery was completed and handed over to a satisfied customer.
