Ferris wheel

Ferris wheels are an indispensable part of fun fairs and amusement parks. The large wheels also have their place in the skylines of many large cities. VAHLE systems guarantee a powerful and safe energy supply.

Reliable energy supply for large wheels

Ferris wheels have fascinated people for centuries. The original "Ferris Wheel," named after inventor George Washington Gale Ferris, was installed in 1893 on the occasion of the World's Fair in Chicago. The organizers wanted to compete with the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

To this day, Ferris wheels stand for technical progress and attract attention wherever they are. In some places, they even serve as landmarks. Recently, the attractions have reached heights that were unimaginable when first created. In order to fulfill their function and to shine spectacularly, especially at night, they require a reliable and weather-resistant power supply.
