Baywater Healthcare approached us to design an alternative lift for use in their vehicles.

Baywater LOx Lift

Case Study

Qi were tasked to design
a lift that would allow second-life usage.

Operatives require equipment to load and unload LOx Dewars (weighing 30 – 60kg), which they deliver to clients every 4 – 6 weeks. The objective was to design a lift that would have second-life usage in extension of the vehicles 4-year contract.

Following submission of our proposal, a prototype was manufactured and installed within a vehicle, and a video of the lift in use sent to Baywater. The lift was then also tested at Millbrook to ensure it met criteria for second-life usage.

We received an order for over 100 lifts, which were manufactured on our site in Telford, and a retrofit programme was agreed with Baywater Depot Managers, allowing our After-sales team to attend site and complete fitment.

Alongside this programme, Baywater placed 7 new conversion orders which also included fitment of this lift.
