Thyssenkrupp Elevator to deliver TWIN elevator systems in Paris

Thyssenkrupp Elevator has received two major contracts for their leading TWIN Elevators to be installed at Hekla Towers in Paris and another project in China.

The La Defense district of Paris will become home to a new skyscraper, featuring Thyssenkrupp Elevator’s unique TWIN elevators with two cabins instead of just one moving in the same shaft.

Thyssenkrupp Elevator will deliver twelve TWIN elevator systems, a technology that increases transport capacity and improves energy efficiency. Applying the TWIN frees up floor space, as this technology transports more people without increasing the number of elevator shafts. The new tower will also include another 12 conventional elevators and escalators.

The height of Hekla Tower is 220 mtr. It has been designed by the architect Jean Nouvel, the spectacular building will become an iconic feature in the redesign of the district – including a green footpath modelled on the famous High Line in New York City. The construction is scheduled for completion by 2022.

Hekla Tower has a total of 66,000 sq mtr of office space capable of hosting around 5,800 people, more than 2,500 sq mtr of terrace space and a wide range of restaurants, a business centre, a 250-seat hall and much more.

Thyssenkrupp Elevator is already providing urban mobility elsewhere in the heart of Europe: TWIN elevators operate in the high-rises D2 (Paris-La Defense), Odeon Tower (Monte Carlo, Monaco) and Incity Tower (Lyon, France). A fourth installation -- in the Trinity Tower in La Defense -- has already been confirmed. This makes Hekla Tower the fifth building in the region to take passengers to the top with TWIN elevators.

In the heart of Chengdu, a financial centre of the central Chinese business district, Forte Financial Island IV is being built with two office towers, each 250 mtr high. Here, a total of 24 TWIN elevators custom-made to the respective requirements of the towers are to be installed. Eight units each will reach maximum speeds of up to 2.5, 5 and 6 m/s respectively.
