Chimelong Group operates theme parks and hotels located in Guangzhou and Zhuhai in China’s Guangdong Province. In 2017, the Safari Park—one of the largest and most visited zoos in Asia—installed three connected aerial tramways lines forming a triangle, which have since become the park’s flagship attraction. Convinced that this was a good investment, Chimelong Group will be installing another triangle ropeway in 2020, with three tri-cable detachable grip aerial tramways running between two new business areas and Ocean Kingdom—a park that hosts the largest aquarium in the world, visited by 8.5 million people in 2016.
Chimelong Group wanted to focus on innovation—illustrated with the station’s design and the choice of tri-cable technology—guaranteeing significant wind stability (up to 90 km/h) and a maximum transport capacity of 5,775 pers/h with long opening hours.
The Carrier design is also strategic to ensure park popularity so the Symphony 32 cabins designed by Pininfarina were the obvious choice. The cabins are very comfortable and equipped with large bay windows to fully appreciate the bird’s eye view of Macao Bay. In addition, they are also equipped with LED strips that will light up the sky at dusk.
In order to illustrate its commitment to carrying out this gigantic project, POMA stood out by implementing a specific support program and providing extremely short delivery times. To do this, POMA relies on three pillars: its capacity to globally control the value chain, its “made in France” industrial tool, and a strong connection with POMA China’s local team.
