The project

The Chimelong Group operates theme parks and hotels in the province of Guangdong, at the Guangzhou and Zhuhai sites.

Since three gondola lifts were installed and connected to form a triangle in the heart of the Safari Park—one of Asia's largest and most visited animal parks—in 2017, they have become the emblematic attraction at the park. As a result, the Chimelong Group commissioned a new project just a year later. It wanted a new line to form a junction between Ocean Kingdom—a park that houses the world's largest aquarium visited by 8.5 million visitors in 2016—and two new activity zones.

Wanting the emphasis to be on innovation, the Chimelong group opted for an original station design and tri-cable ropeway technology.

POMA, innovation

for the project

Performance

3S technology guarantees excellent stability in winds that can reach up to 90 kph in this region and a maximum capacity of 5700 pph at peak times.

 

Design

The 32-person Symphony carrier model with a Pininfarina design was strategically and unanimously chosen to boost the park’s appeal. Ultra-comfortable and with a large surface area of glazing offering stunning views of Macao Bay, the cabins are also equipped with a LED strip to light up the sky at night.

Support

When committing to this huge project, POMA differentiated itself with its ad hoc support and a capacity to meet extremely tight deadlines.  To do this, POMA leveraged its end-to-end management of the value chain, its “Made in France” industrial facilities and excellent working relations with local teams at its Beijing subsidiary.

Pioneering

This is the first link comprising 3 interconnected detachable ropeways using tri-cable technology, in a triangular configuration! This 4.5 km link between the colossal aquarium and two new activity zones champions innovation and technology.
