KONE has won an order to supply the elevators and escalators to the Helsinki metropolitan region’s new Ring Rail Line. The order includes 21 KONE MonoSpace® Special elevators, two inclined elevators and 37 KONE TransitMaster® 140 escalators. The project includes a 10-year KONE Care® Premium maintenance agreement.
The Ring Rail Line is one of the most important infrastructure projects currently ongoing in Finland. It will bring rail services to new areas of the city of Vantaa and it forms an important link to the Helsinki Airport. The contract covers deliveries to five Ring Rail Line stations: Vantaankoski, Leinelä, Airport, Aviapolis and Kivistö.
“We are proud to deliver our innovative and eco-efficient People Flow™ solutions which are especially designed for the requirements of mass transit to this significant infrastructure project,” says Ari Lehtoranta, EVP and Area Director of KONE Central and North Europe.
The order for the escalators was booked in Q1 2011 and the elevator order was booked in Q2 2011.
