Yes, it does. An easy solution is to have a superstructure under the platform, that has a point at which the string attaches. this point could be below the the pulley, while the attached platform itself is above.
This is exactly what I did for one of my competitions but be careful as to how fast the platform is lifted. If it goes too fast, the battery will be launched off of the platform.
