New World To Boast MacGregor Packages

August 31, 2000

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.
