Kone eco-efficient elevators and escalators to serve another TUI Cruises vessel, 'Mein Schiff 4'.

The new cruise ship will be the sister ship of Mein Schiff 3, which will also have Kone's solutions installed onboard. Both vessels will be built at STX Finland, Turku shipyard, the former being set for delivery in the spring of 2014 and the latter in the spring of 2015.

Kone's People Flow® solutions will facilitate the smooth and efficient movement of 3,500 passengers and personnel onboard the Mein Schiff 4. Kone will provide a total of 22 units for this vessel, consisting of 10 elevators for passengers and 8 elevators for service, two escalators and two platforms for people with impaired mobility. All of the elevators are Kone MiniSpace® elevators with compact machine rooms and are equipped with the latest eco-efficient technology, including energy recovery systems. Powered by the Kone EcoDisc® hoisting machine, these solutions are 50-70% more energy efficient than conventional elevators.

"We appreciate the long lasting and strong collaboration with the shipyard, shipowner and the architects during the design phase of the first ship," says John Hemgård, Head of Marine Business at KONE. "Our ability to provide reliable and energy-efficient people flow solutions with state-of-the-art design has supported STX and TUI Cruises to develop their next generation cruise ships."

TUI Cruises is a joint venture between TUI AG and Royal Caribbean. Its services are tailored for the German-speaking market.
