As the main contractor, Hollandia designed, produced and installed this spectacular construction in close collaboration with various subcontractors within a period of 15 months. The order we received from the client was briefly as follows: The design, manufacture, conservation, assembly and operational delivery of the Ferris wheel “British Airways London Eye” (formerly known as “Millennium Wheel”). Since March 9, 2000, approximately 100,000 visitors a week enjoy this eye-catcher with a magnificent view of London and surrounding areas. With a diameter of 135 meters, this Ferris wheel hangs unilaterally over the Thames and stands on the south bank of the Thames, opposite the Westminster Palace.
Hollandia has won various prizes with the London Eye, including the National and European Steel Prize. This type of Ferris wheel was unique in its kind at the time of its realization.
