KONE Wins 23-Unit High-Rise Project In Singapore
KONE has been awarded a contract to equip 23 elevators for a new high-rise development planned at the former Keppel Towers site in Singapore, the company announced on October 20. The commercial development will comprise a 32-story Grade-A office tower and ancillary retail spaces. KONE will provide the redeveloped building with 17 of its MiniSpace™ DX elevators and six MonoSpace® DX elevators, which are designed with built-in connectivity functions. The elevators serving the office floors will be installed with KONE’s Destination Control System, which takes into account desired destination floors and the number of waiting passengers to improve efficiency and convenience. The system also has Application Programming Interfaces to allow potential future integration with the building’s in-house application or other third-party systems. The project is expected to be completed in 2024.
