New Residential Complex
TIANJIN, China, July 13, 2016 – Meishan Sunshine has ordered 321 Otis Gen2® elevators for its Sunshine 1519 project, a new high-end residential complex in the city of Meishan in China’s southeastern Sichuan province. Otis, the world’s leading manufacturer and maintainer of elevators, escalators and moving walkways, is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
The Sunshine 1519 project includes high-end residential buildings covering an area of 446,000 square meters and is expected to be complete in 2017. The Gen2 elevators for the project will be provided by Otis Elevator (China) Co., Ltd (Otis China), a local Otis entity.
The Gen2 elevator, one of Otis’ best-selling elevators in its 163-year history, uses unique, patented flat-belt drive technology that significantly reduces vibration, providing passengers with a remarkably smooth, quiet ride and improved overall comfort compared to conventional systems. In addition, the Gen2 machine with a ReGen™ drive is smaller and capable of reducing overall elevator energy consumption by 75 percent under normal operation compared to conventional geared machines with non-regenerative drives, enabling developers and owners to manage their buildings more economically.
“Being chosen to participate in this exciting new development in Sichuan is a testament to the high quality of Otis technologies and services,” said Tony Black, president of Otis Elevator (China) Investment Co Ltd. “We will strive to do even better and collaborate with more developers to continue to support city development.”
Otis products have been selected for key infrastructure projects and buildings in southwest China, including the Chengdu Metro and Chengdu Yintai Centre.
