KONE marine solutions 03
First in experience
KONE is the leader in providing vertical
transportation solutions for marine applications –
first in market share, first in global service
coverage, first in innovative solutions that
improve efficiency and reliability.
First things first
KONE has been designing, manufacturing, installing
and maintaining people flow solutions since 1910.
We have been working in the marine sector for
decades. In that time we have delivered thousands
of elevators and escalators for hundreds of cruise
ships, cargo ships and Ropax vessels. All of our marine
solutions are backed by our global service network,
serving you in all major ports worldwide.
A full range of solutions
We are the leading global partner of shipowners
and shipyards, and we are the top choice for naval
architects and hotel managers. There are some good
reasons for this.
We supply a full range of solutions for cargo and
passenger ships: luxurious passenger elevators and
reliable service elevators; scenic elevators that make
a great first impression on passengers; low-speed
elevators, which are very convenient when space is
limited; and KONE escalator solutions, which provide
efficient vertical transportation to eliminate bottlenecks, for example during disembarkation.
For a full range of requirements
For shipowners, KONE solutions provide excellent
reliability and efficiency, for low overall lifecycle costs.
In addition, both KONE elevators and escalators are
highly eco-efficient, providing considerable energy
savings over the lifetime of the installation.
For naval architects, we provide elevators and
escalators that are integrated into the ship’s design
scheme. You can choose from a wide range of
modular pre-engineered cars for quick installation,
or create a unique state-of-the-art scenic elevator.
For shipyards, we provide total turnkey solutions
from consulting, design, engineering and materials
supply to factory testing, complete installation and
commissioning onboard.
And for hotel managers, we provide stylishly designed
solutions that make an excellent first impression on
guests as they travel to their staterooms.
We are first because we pay attention to every detail.
First time, every time.
First in capability
We provide comprehensive consulting, installation, after-sales, maintenance
and modernization services. We are first in the shipbuilding process, and we
are still working for you long after the ship has set off on its maiden voyage.
The place to start
The best way to start is with a thorough analysis of
the elevator traffic. The KONE TrafCal™ elevator
traffic analysis provides a comprehensive assessment
of different flows – passengers, crews, goods, luggage –
together with an analysis of different situations, such as
embarkation, disembarkation, and everyday operation
at sea. This analysis helps us create the ideal solution
for your requirements and ensure the best possible flow
of people and cargo.
The KONE TrafCal™ traffic analysis tool helps you
plan the best possible flow of people and cargo.

Modular plug-in solutions
Plug-in trunk construction of the elevator saves
considerable time during shipbuilding. The elevator
equipment is pre-installed in a pre-fabricated trunk
module which is manufactured as a steel framework.
The entire module is pre-assembled and tested – car,
mechanical and electrical systems, etc. – before it is
sent to the shipyard. Only a minimal amount of work
needs to be done at the shipyard: the unit is lowered
into position and welded in place. Then it is ready to
serve other people working on the ship.
Plug-in trunk construction saves time during
ship construction. The pre-fabricated module
is lowered into position and welded in place.

First impressions matter
People look forward to a cruise for weeks, months
or even years. When they come on board, they
expect everything to be perfect, from the first
impression to the last look back as they disembark
and head for home.
Scenic elevators
The panoramic view over the promenade deck from
a KONE scenic elevator, the perception of splendid
light and abundant space, the overall excitement of
being in the midst of a luxurious environment, all
these create a great first impression of the ship. An
impression that stays.
KONE provides scenic elevators with a variety of
pre-engineered models and shapes, both with flat
and curved glass, making it easy to integrate the
elevator into the ship’s design. Also KONE works
with you to create a unique scenic elevator to
match your unique vision.
Passenger elevators
Both the machine-room-less KONE MonoSpace®
elevator and the KONE MiniSpace™ elevator, with
a small machine room, are powered by the KONE
EcoDisc® hoisting machine. Proven KONE EcoDisc®
technology ensures that passengers are transported
safely, reliably, with ease and comfort. The gearless
KONE EcoDisc® lowers energy consumption,
reduces demands on building space, and ensures
greater reliability. It is designed for a lifetime of at
least 25 years, in daily operation.
KONE escalator solutions provide continuous,
efficient people flow between decks. They show
their irreplaceable value in solving bottlenecks
during ship embarkation and disembarkation. They
are also very useful when the galley is below the
restaurant, so that waiters can move smoothly
between decks.
First in efficiency and reliability
KONE MonoSpace®
Revolutionary machine-room-less elevator concept
The KONE MonoSpace requires only a single space –
the shaft. This eliminates the need for a machine room,
giving naval architects greater flexibility and saving
on construction costs and weight. Machine-room-less
elevators can also easily serve the ship’s deck. Powered
by the KONE EcoDisc® hoisting machine, the KONE
MonoSpace provides energy-efficient vertical transport
in a compact space.
KONE MiniSpace™
Gearless hoisting machinery in a compact machine
In the KONE MiniSpace concept, the machine room
is simply an extension of the elevator shaft, which
makes it very easy and cost-efficient to construct. The
compact machine room can be located above, beside,
or below the shaft, whichever solution integrates best
with the ship’s design.
The compact KONE EcoDisc hoisting machine means
there is plenty of space in the machine room.

Service elevators - Catering for your needs
KONE elevators for transporting ship’s provisions and
catering products meet strict hygienic requirements.
The stainless steel cladding of the elevator car can be
also provided with smooth and rounded corners to
comply with USPHS requirements.
Dumbwaiters - When space is limited
For the transportation of food or goods – but not
people – KONE provides dumbwaiters, which are
equipped with a self-supporting shaft and hinged
or sliding doors.
First in maintenance coverage
Every port is your home port for KONE maintenance
and spare parts. Our global service network serves
you in more than 50 countries and all major ports.

all relevant regulations. We can also provide detailed
recommendations on how to maintain and modernize
the equipment. KONE issues required certification
and technical documentation for the relevant
authorities and insurers.

Eco-efficient™ elevators
Efficient hoisting
The KONE EcoDisc® made energy hungry DC gearless and geared hoisting machines obsolete. This
permanent magnet synchronous machine, together
with a vector controlled drive system and regenerative options, provides the highest total efficiency
and minimizes both mechanical and electrical losses.
Elevators equipped with the KONE EcoDisc hoisting
machine are 50–70% more efficient than elevators
that use conventional traction 2-speed or hydraulic
technology. The KONE EcoDisc contains no oil.

Less space
Less weight
Less maintenance
Energy regeneration
When the car is descending with a heavy load (or
ascending with a light load), it contains potential
energy. The regenerative drive recovers this energy,
saving 20-35% of the total energy consumed.
Energy-saving car lighting
KONE elevators are equipped with modern fluorescent tubes and LED lights that can last up to 10 times
longer and use up to 80% less energy than conventional lighting solutions.
Energy-efficient standby operation
Standby solutions power down the equipment when
it is not in use, providing substantial energy savings,
especially in places with periods of low elevator usage.
Automatic car light operation turns off the lights
when the car is not in use and on again when
the car is called.
The power stage of the drive is set to sleep mode
when not in use.
Signalization displays are dimmed when not in
The car fan is turned off when the elevator is not
in use.
Corridor illumination control automatically adjusts the light on the destination floor.
The environmental impact and recycling of KONE products
Lifecycle assessments of KONE elevators have shown that the greatest environmental impact of an elevator or
escalator stems from the electricity used to operate it. Therefore, KONE is focusing on systematically reducing
the energy consumption of its solutions with each new product release.
Elevators consist mostly of metals, meaning that approximately 90% of the material can be recycled.
