New living space: 584 synergy elevators for major development projects in Egypt
ThyssenKrupp Elevator is equipping the urban development projects "Madinaty" and "Al Rehab" outside Cairo with innovative elevator systems
The synergy is a particularly future-oriented elevator system. Thanks to its compact design the installations require no machine room and only reduced shaft heads and pits. This allows architects greater design freedom and increases the useful space of buildings. In addition, the gearless traction machines are extremely energy-efficient and reliable and so particularly cost-effective in operation.
The synergy elevators in this contract have a design load of 450 kilograms, offer space for six people and will serve up to seven stops.
ThyssenKrupp Elevator has been present in Egypt with its own subsidiary for over ten years. Customers mainly include hotels, hospitals, administrative, residential and office buildings as well as public transit authorities. Among the renowned clients are Cairo International Airport and Sharm El Sheikh International Airport. Both use almost the whole range of the company's passenger transportation systems, including elevators, escalators, moving walks and passenger boarding bridges. In addition, ThyssenKrupp Elevator Egypt services the 156 escalators and 54 elevators in Cairo's metro system.
