KONE Corporation has secured an order to deliver a total of 47 elevators and escalators to Central Boulevard Towers mixed-use development in Singapore.
The complex will be equipped with KONE’s ground-breaking innovations including the KONE UltraRope hoisting technology and the intelligent KONE 24/7 Connected Services.
“We want to provide value for our customers during the entire lifespan of their building, and we are extremely excited to bring the latest innovations and digital solutions in the industry to the benefit of IOI Properties and the Central Boulevard Towers tenants,” said Axel Berkling, executive vice president for KONE Asia Pacific.
Introduced in February 2017, 24/7 Connected Services uses the IBM Watson IoT platform and other advanced technologies to bring intelligent services to elevators and escalators.
It means a completely new experience for KONE's customers, with less equipment downtime, fewer faults and detailed information on maintenance work. For people using elevators and escalators, it means less waiting time and more personalized experiences. The system enables vast amounts of data from elevator sensors to be monitored, analysed and displayed in real-time, improving equipment performance, reliability and safety.
Additionally, the building will be equipped with KONE E-Link, a facility management tool designed to secure the best possible tenant service quality in the building, and KONE Destination control system for reduced waiting and travelling times.
Located in Singapore’s Central Business District and developed by Wealthy Link (a subsidiary of IOI Properties), Central Boulevard Towers will consist of premium Grade A office and retail spaces.
KONE will deliver 37 KONE Minispace elevators, 6 KONE MonoSpace elevators, and 4 KONE TravelMaster110 escalators to the development. 19 of the elevators will be equipped with KONE UltraRope technology.
The Central Boulevard Towers project is scheduled for completion in 2022.
