Oasis of the Seas is a cruise ship built for Royal Caribbean International at the STX Europe shipyard in Turku. When completed, the Oasis of the Seas and its sister ship Allure of the Seas were the largest passenger ships of all time in the world. Electro Waves provided the water and lighting implementations for the pool areas of both ships.
Different AV technology!
Water effects on cruise ships are important experiences for cruise lines and they are continually increasing in size. The first water experience Electro Waves implemented on a ship was the Splash Deck and an illuminated musical fountain on the Enchantment of the Seas, followed by Splash Decks and water walls on three Freedom-class ships.
The largest water effects built on cruise ships are on the Allure and the Oasis. Electro Waves implemented Splash Decks and 700-seat Aqua Theaters.
Electro Waves was responsible for all installations in the water areas and the coordination of material supply from the factories. Electro Waves was also in charge of designing the implementation in collaboration with the shipyard’s own organization.
Water effects utilize atypical AV technology, but the control systems and lighting use more conventional methods. Electro Waves also installed the nozzles, piping, frequency changers, filters, pumps, sewerage and special valves called Water Switches. Electro Waves is the only provider of AV technology in Finland that has the expertise to implement projects of this magnitude on cruise ships.
