FreeSpeak II installed at Ferrari World
UAE: Abu Dhabi’s Ferrari World theme park has been installed with a Clear-Com FreeSpeak II digital wireless intercom system for ride operation coordination, communication and safety. The manufacturer’s local distributor, NMK Electronics Enterprises assisted in the system design.
FreeSpeak II will be used by staff operating two rides, Karting Academy and Scuderia Challenge. Due to the noise levels and speeds associated with these rides, the operators required a clear, effective and reliable communication system. The system allows large numbers of wireless beltpack users to simultaneously roam across an expansive operation and stay connected. This was particularly important due to the safety measures adopted in the rides, with operators situated far from one another during operation. As well as the ability to communicate across large areas, the sound needed to be clear so that if an emergency did arise operators could communicate and understand one another and react immediately.
‘It is crucial that our communication systems can be both flexible and reliable,’ stated a Ferrari World spokesperson. ‘We are working with high octane rides, so our operators need to be alert and able to communicate with one another at all times. FreeSpeak II was the perfect solution as it enables our operators to cover the entirety of the ride but still be able to communicate with each other quickly and clearly.’
‘We recommended Clear-Com’s FreeSpeak II be used on this project as this was the communication system that met with all the needs our client, Ferrari World, requested,’ added Abdul Hadi, Clear–Com product manager at NMK. ‘FreeSpeak II is a robust and reliable system that we knew would provide the bespoke solution Ferrari World was asking for.’
‘This particular project called for clear and reliable communications across a wide area, and the FreeSpeak II digital wireless intercom system has proved to be ideal,’ concluded Samer Mouwanes, regional sales manager at Clear-Com. ‘Ferrari World is an exciting and innovative theme park and I am delighted that Clear-Com could provide a solution that has optimised the safety of all the budding Formula One drivers who are enjoying the rides.’
