After securing an order for the Marina Bay SandsTM Integrated Resort’s three soaring 56-storey hotel towers in Singapore last February, KONE won a second order for this impressive project. The order comprises 88 elevators operating in the development’s convention and exhibition center, retail space, ArtScience Museum, two theatres and casino.
With an approximate value of EUR 13 million, the second order raised the total monetary contract value for this project to over EUR 40 million. The two orders also make KONE the largest vertical transportation supplier in the project.
“This uniquely prestigious and demanding project highlights KONE’s capability to provide a full range of solutions from luxury high-rise to heavy freight use, all powered by the KONE EcoDisc® hoisting machine,” says Pekka Kemppainen, KONE EVP and Area Director for the Asia-Pacific region. “Thanks to KONE’s EcoDisc® technology, we are able to provide the leading Eco-efficient™ solutions on the market today.”
