Full control from Alton Towers

Alton Towers Resort, the UK's largest theme park operated by Merlin Entertainments, is placing an increased focus on climate control in its on-site waterpark and spa.

The resort is standardising on AC drives from Control Techniques, an Emerson Industrial Automation company.  

"It is crucial to keep both the temperature and humidity of the waterpark constant at 29-30 degrees Celsius and around 70 per cent humidity to make the environment comfortable for children and adults alike and to prevent excessive condensation," said Alton Towers technical services manager, Warren Critchley.

"Since switching to Control Techniques drives we've experienced no failures and feel secure that by working with their distributor Lockwell we have access to 24 hour service and support, seven days a week if any issues should arise."
