Hong Kong Cultural Centre Flying System Upgrade

Located in Tsim Sha Tsui, the Hong Kong Cultural Centre is a multipurpose performance facility that first opened its doors in 1989. Originally built by the former Urban Council, it has been under the direction of the Hong Kong Government’s Leisure and Cultural Services Department since 2000.

Bespoke winches have been a longstanding area of expertise, primarily used for moving scenery and for another of our specialties: performer flying. Winches

As a result of our long-term relationship with this government client, we were chosen to undertake the phased upgrade of control infrastructure and winches in this impressive venue. Having already completed an MCC upgrade, we handed over the last of three phased upgrades of the winches in 2022, bringing the whole system in line with current machine safety standards. We engineered, manufactured, installed, and commissioned a bespoke winch design based on the BT2-200, installed in a RORO configuration to support the counterweight-assist operation of 26 axes. Our local team completed the work in alignment with the venue’s schedule, despite ongoing global supply chain challenges.
