Propeller – Miami Cruise Terminal
The RCCL Cruise Terminal in Miami is hosting a 15000 lbs, 56 ft tall, gold chromed kinetic sculpture as the principal attraction of the main entrance. The assembly consists of a pair of propellers, each with 6 blades and a diameter of 27 ft rotating over a public area (with Industry Standard Safety Factors incorporated).
Both propellers rotate around a 24 in diameter mast as well as around their own axis at the speed of 3 RPM. A single fixed speed gearmotor drives the rotation of the mast and the rotation of both propellers.
