Ain Dubai is the world’s largest and tallest observation wheel, standing at over 250 metres. This record-breaking landmark with 48 uber-luxurious passenger cabins that circle the enormous circumference of the wheel have capacity to carry up to 1,750 visitors at once. The assembled hub and spindle is approximately 40 metres long and 20 metres high and weighs a massive 1,805 tonnes (which is equivalent to four A380 aircrafts.) Each leg of the wheel stands at a height of 126 metres and is long enough to fit 15 London buses. The structure includes around 11,200 tonnes of steel, around 33 percent more than the amount of iron used to construct the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris.
KCI the engineers designed and engineered the complete wheel structure including the installation engineering for this unrivalled monument.
Set to open on October 21st, KCI the engineers is proud engineering partner of #AinDubai.
