KONE has won an order to deliver 29 elevators for a high-rise residential project in the Worli district of Mumbai, India. The real estate project will create 200 luxury homes in Worli Tower B. Rising to a height of 358 meters, and once completed, the tower will offer residents spectacular views of the city.
The order includes 24 KONE MiniSpace™ and five KONE MonoSpace® elevators which feature a glass encased scenic elevator, as well as service elevators and an elevator for vehicles. Twelve of the KONE MiniSpace elevators will be running at speeds of 8 m/s taking residents quickly and smoothly to the top floors of the tower. Residents will access the elevators with an RFID card which is connected to the KONE Access™ solution to improve security and offer personalized elevator calls. The equipment is also integrated to KONE E-Link™ monitoring solution to provide real-time view of elevator status and ensure high availability.
The Worli Mixed-Use Development has been designed by Kohn Pederson Fox Associates and is being constructed by Samsung C&T Corporation. The owner is Oasis Realty, a joint venture between Sahana and Oberoi Realty. Installation of the elevators is expected to be completed at the end of 2015.
