Order for Elevator Modernisation


As part of the Costa Classica lengthening project at the end of this year, MacGREGOR has won a US$1.3 million order for elevator modernisation work including adding four new units and replacing the existing control system. This is the most extensive cruise ship conversion project yet. By inserting a new 44m-long section into the 220m-long Costa Classica, berth capacity will be increased by approximately 50 per cent, offering 1,020 cabins compared with the current 654.

The 52,925gt Costa Classica will arrive in UK-based Cammell Lairdís shipyard at the end of November 2000, and the contract requires the ship to be redelivered to Costa Crociere towards the end of March 2001, a period of 18 weeks.
MacGREGOR is responsible for:
  • Design, manufacture, installation and commissioning of four new elevators: two passenger elevators and two service elevators to USPH standards.
  • Conversion of existing elevators, to extend the travel on some of these.
  • Modernising and standardising the existing controllers and drive systems by replacing these with the KONE TMS 600 control system and KONE V≥F drive system, also used for the new elevators.

    As part of the pre-contract activities MacGREGOR staff visited Costa Classica to survey the existing elevators, which were supplied by a competitor. A Traffic Analysis was also carried out for both the existing elevator configuration and the new arrangement proposed by MacGREGOR. As well as contributing to optimised passenger flow arrangements, this exercise was useful in persuading the shipyard and the owner of the benefits of installing modern technology for the control and drive systems for the existing elevators.
