OMME LIFT shows the flag at Mount Everest

When travelling to Nepal in March, Engineering Manager and 4th generation in the family-owned OMME LIFT – Henrik Lorentsen took the obvious opportunity to bring OMME LIFT to new heights at the world’s highest mountain Mount Everest in the Himalayas.

“Our destination was the Mount Everest Base Camp at 5,364 meters above sea level, which we reached after 7 days of hiking”, says Henrik Lorentsen. At this altitude the temperature is around 0°C in the daytime and down to -10°C at night. In addition there is only half the amount of oxygen available – a condition where even minor endeavours can leave you out of breath.

“As you can see from the photos, the local Nepalese were very interested in our access platforms” says Henrik Lorentsen; “This indicates that people who are used to life in the heights know good quality when they see it…”
