Smooth sailing

Construction schedules are particularly critical in the shipbuilding industry. All service elevators must be completed two months before the ship is released for delivery; while passenger elevators must be completed one month in advance of delivery. We worked closely with the shipyard to ensure all schedules were met.

Attention to detail

Cruise ship elevators can make as many as one million starts a year, nearly one every 30 seconds. To ensure consistent performance in a 24/7 environment, we use local installation crews who specialize in marine installations. Such reliability is complemented by eco-efficiency. Our industry-leading technology delivers reduced fuel consumption, an important concern in a highly competitive industry.

"KONE has a separate project unit specifically for solutions in marine applications, and that resource is invaluable," says Hanno Buss, shipbuilder Meyer Werft Project Manager (Outfitting).
