KONE wins contract for new Canary Wharf office block
By BFN News | 08:35 AM | Wednesday 15 February, 2012
KONE has been selected to supply 25 eco-efficient lifts with supportive technologies to 25 Churchill Place in London.
This new high-rise office building in Canary Wharf will stand at a height of 128 meters once completed in late 2014.
The office building is being developed by the Canary Wharf Group and the main contractor is Canary Wharf Construction.
The order includes 22 KONE MiniSpace elevators, of which 20 will be dedicated to transporting passengers and two for freight.
MiniSpace elevators are especially suited to high-rise buildings.
The other three lifts are KONE MonoSpace�® Special, of which two can travel at the high speeds required for firefighting.
These lifts, equipped with the energy-efficient KONE EcoDisc hoisting machine, are 50-70% more efficient than elevators that use conventional traction two-speed or hydraulic technology.
