Touted as the world's first luxury floating resort, the World of ResidenSea will feature MacGregor elevators
and other equipment in packages worth approximately $2 million. The 40,000-gt vessel is currently under construction at Fosen Mek Verksteder yard for Silversea Cruises.
MacGregor's passenger ship division will supply a turn-key elevator package to the vessel, while the group's Global Services Division office in Norway has been awarded the contract to supply equipment including: entrance doors, stores doors, shore connection doors, two hatch covers and two lifting platforms.
The vessel's elevator specification comprises eight MacGregor elevators, four of which are designated for passengers - with the remainder to be used for service. Installed in two groups of two, with operating heights of 69 ft. (21 m), all of the passenger units have a traveling speed of 1.6 m/s and are rated to hold approximately 10 passengers.
