One of the first companies to use mules and helicopters to transport construction materials in Hong Kong
In order to minimise the impact on environment, helicopters and mules were used to transport over 12,000 tonnes of materials in conjunction with Ngong Ping 360’s construction.
Environmentally-friendly system that meets international standards
Regarding the infrastructure, the cable cars were designed in such a way that noises from Ngong Ping 360’s system and motors are reduced to meet the requirements of the Hong Kong Building Environmental Assessment Method (HK-BEAM) and to minimise noise pollution to nearby residents.
The exterior lighting levels are also maintained to international standards to reduce light pollution.
Crystal Cabin, first-of-its-kind
The Crystal Cabin is believed to be the first-ever cable car system to adopt a full-width single piece of glass for a cabin bottom.
