In 2006 already, KCI made the first concept design for the New York Wheel. The initial design had the image of an apple in the rim structure of the wheel referring to New York as the Big Apple.
In 2013, the project continued again and KCI was asked to do the full concept design of all member sizes viz. the size and fitness of all elements, associated steel weight, full design of drive and restraint system, emergency & evacuation procedures and HSE in general.
