ThyssenKrupp Elevator Secures Orders for Two Office Projects in France

ThyssenKrupp Elevator has secured an order to deliver 7 TWIN elevators with 14 cabs in total for the Tour D2, a 40-story office tower located in Paris, marking the debut of the TWIN in France.

The upper TWIN cabs’ traveling speed through the 182 m height tower will be up to 5 m/s, while that of the lower cabs will be 4 m/s. The utilization of the two elevator cabs one over the other on a single shaft optimizing capacity in the small area is the major benefit of the TWIN system.

A control system for destination selection improves passenger flows and reduces waiting and travel times. Passengers choose their floor through the touch screen before entering the cab. All incoming data is being processed by a central computer, which then allots the quickest cab. Tour D2 will also have two escalators and nine traditional elevators. The first offices are anticipated to be in use in 2014.

ThyssenKrupp Elevator has also secured an order to install 26 elevators in total in Tour Majunga, a 48-story office tower situated in La Défense,’ a modern Parisian business district. The installation of the 16 high-speed elevators will be the technical highlight of the 205 m office building, which is slated for completion by 2014. These high-speed elevators’ speed will be up to 6 m/s. The building will also feature an intelligent control system for destination selection.

The utilization of the advanced control technology and regenerative drives will enhance the efficiency of the elevators in the Tour Majunga and Tour D2 sustainably. Cab travel speed and acceleration can be regulated during operation to reduce electricity consumption and the energy produced during braking is supplied into the internal power networks, ensuing significant savings in energy compared to traditional drives.
