Second contract between SKS Mechatronics and STX France

SKS Mechatronics is supplying a control and lift system for a bar on a luxury cruise liner being built in France. The order was made by STX France SA.

The Rising Tide bar will be on the Oasis 3 cruise ship, which is being built at STX’s shipyard in St. Nazaire, France. The bar accommodates 50 customers and it functions like a regular elevator, moving between decks 5 and 8.

This marks the second contract between the companies, as last May STX France SA ordered an ice surface system from the Finnish company for a skating rink on the same ship. Both deals include an option for deliveries for the fourth Oasis ship.

The first deliveries to France will be made at the start of next year, and the ship is expected to be completed in 2016.
