Madrid, 23/06/2009. Holidays at sea. That is the passion that each day seems like and convince more now that summer arrives. Some boats, regardless of whatever type (small for 500 occupants, medium to about 1,000 people or large for more than 2,000 passengers) have to function as vertical transport refers to perfection. “Passengers always have to be moved and transported by the different levels of the boat faster, secure and comfortable,” explains Francisco Pardeiro, director of major accounts and new works by KONE Spain. A need as added Janne Sorsa, People Manager Koneman Flow becomes more imperative now that the summer begins and the large cruise ships operating as if they were big hotels. “The use of these lifts is even more intensive than in the past and nothing can fail in high traffic situations such as when passengers leave the ship for sightseeing or dinner, or when everyone is going to cover at a time in which the Elevators must be answered.

Passengers can not wait queues and times of opening and closing doors or operating escalators must always be excellent. ” But how is able to avoid traffic jams?. According says Alejandro Garcia, head of sales and product KONE Marine all starts from the design of the ship. “This is when you have to determine the best transportation options and what are the places where they will locate the elevators because after all this depends on the service provided. ” An example is the “Oasis of the Seas, the largest cruise ship and extraordinary world that KONE is building. “It’s a 40% larger than the previous largest cruise ship in the world. It has 16 floors and houses up to 5400 passengers in 2700 cabins, a number of passengers until now unthinkable, “says Garcia. This gigantic boat has 13 MonoSpace KONE elevators, 28 and 3 KONE MiniSpace technology platforms more environmentally friendly and efficient.

“In total there are 12 passenger elevators, 12 scenic passenger lifts, service lifts 17, 3 lifts adapted easily accessible for disabled guests and two staircases,” he adds Pardeiro. But whether this cruise or any other, KONE elevators in them have implemented the most demanding certifications. “This is because the environment in which they are, the sea, is a niche market that requires strict compliance with standards such as the EN 81-1, ISO 8383, the EN 115:2008 (for stairs mechanical), the ADA or USPH well as certificates issued by the standings societies DNV, GL, Lloyds, ABS, BV, Rina “Pardeiro ends.
