41 KONE elevators aboard the Oasis of the Seas

KONE delivered a total of 41 elevators to the Oasis of the Seas, the world’s largest floating hotel, a bustling, seafaring metropolis.

The ship has attractions such as a water park, an ice-skating rink, a full-blown Broadway theater, and a real park with 12,000 plants.

Smooth logistics on the 16-deck ship are a prerequisite, with elevators the key to everything. KONE Marine is highly experienced in providing solutions for cruise ships, as KONE is a market leader in the cruise ship segment.

The KONE elevators were hoisted by the economically and ecologically advanced KONE EcoDisc® technology, using both space and energy efficient KONE MiniSpace™ and KONE MonoSpace® solutions. Elevator modes were synchronized with the guest communication system so that disembarking instructions, for example, would be automatically displayed on the elevators’ LCD screens.

KONE also provided special-access elevators for guests with reduced mobility. Furthermore, two escalators were incorporated – rare equipment on ships. These help to speed up the flow of people, especially at the critical times of boarding and disembarkation.

Elevators were pre-assembled inside the pre-manufactured shafts at the KONE factory, then brought in as modules to the shipyard, lifted into position and welded to place. KONE’s innovative plug-in solution enabled an early completion of the elevators; several of the elevators served the ship as logistics elevators already during the construction phase.
