thyssenkrupp TWIN elevators technology increases transport capacity and improves energy efficiency

Elevator supplies twin elevators
The new iconic skyscraper, Hekla tower, in Paris' business district La Defense is to be equipped with the exceptional thyssenkrupp Elevator solutions: the unique TWIN elevators with two cabins instead of just one, moving in the same shaft.

thyssenkrupp Elevator will deliver 12 TWIN elevator systems, a technology that increases transport capacity and improves energy efficiency. Applying the TWIN system 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 order comes on top of a large project in China requiring installation of 24 TWIN elevator units.

The 220-meter tall Hekla Tower is being designed by renowned 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.

"The forward-looking concept of the TWIN solution played a decisive role in the development of the project, as it perfectly accommodates the tower's high standards and demanding transport capacity, without occupying additional floor-space with more elevator shafts," comments Peter Walker, CEO of thyssenkrupp Elevator. "The TWIN technology offers higher performance, safety and comfort, but also better energy efficiency. Sustainability is a priority in the comprehensively certified Hekla Tower."

Hekla Tower has a total of 66,000 sqm of office space capable of hosting around 5,800 people, more than 2,500 sqm of terrace space, restaurants, a business center, a 250-seat hall and more. The building meets the strict requirements of the HQE, LEED and BREEAM environmental certificates as well as the Effinergie+ and WELL standards.

thyssenkrupp Elevator is already providing outstanding urban mobility elsewhere in the heart of Europe: TWIN elevators operate in the high-rises D2 (Paris-La Defense), Odeon Tower (Montecarlo, 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.

The architects of the Hekla building were particularly impressed by the advanced TWIN concept. By 2022, the new elevators will be moving people in the building at a speed of 7m/s. During the construction phase, a thyssenkrupp shaft climber grows with the shell of the building and ensures rapid transportation of people during construction.

TWIN solutions will also provide lifts for other great projects by 2022. In the heart of Chengdu, a financial center of the central Chinese business district, Forte Financial Island IV is being built with two office towers, each 250 meters 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. Developer of the project, the Forte Group, is one of the largest of its kind in China and has completed numerous construction projects in Shanghai, Beijing, Nanjing and Tianjin.

thyssenkrupp offers smart and innovative products and services designed to meet customers' individual requirements. Its portfolio includes passenger and freight elevators, escalators and moving walks, passenger boarding bridges, stair and platform lifts as well as tailored service solutions for all products. Over 1,000 locations around the world provide an extensive sales and service network to guarantee closeness to customers.
