JAKARTA, Indonesia, Oct. 25, 2016 — PT Citas Otis Elevator (“Otis Indonesia”) has secured a contract to supply 25 state-of-the-art, energy-efficient elevators and escalators for the Millennium Centennial Center in Jakarta, Indonesia’s business district. When completed, the building will be one of the first in Jakarta with double-deck elevator systems. Otis, the world’s leading manufacturer and maintainer of people-moving products, including elevators, escalators and moving walkways, is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
As part of the contract, Otis Indonesia will provide 12 double-deck SkyRise® elevators with CompassPlus™ destination management systems, and three single-deck SkyRise elevators. The SkyRise premier high-rise elevator system is specially designed to deliver a fast, smooth and quiet travel experience for buildings more than 600 meters tall. Each SkyRise installation integrates advanced technologies to promote a seamless and safe operation of the entire system. Its double-deck configuration, which consists of two cars constructed one atop the other, enables the elevators to serve alternate floors simultaneously, reducing the number of elevator shafts required and maximizing usable floor space. The CompassPlus™ destination management system uses Otis’ patented SmartGroup technology to organize travel by grouping passengers and stops to get people to their destination up to 50 percent faster than conventional dispatching systems.
In addition, four escalators and six Gen2® elevators with ReGen™ drives will also be part of this project. Otis Gen2 elevators incorporated with ReGen™ drives can reduce energy consumption by 75 percent under normal operating conditions compared to traditional elevator systems with non-regenerative drives.
Mr. Tan Kian, President and CEO of PT. Permata Birama Sakti, the building owner and developer, said: “Following a stringent supplier selection process, we are very pleased to have chosen Otis Indonesia for this iconic project, which will be one of the first double-deck elevator installations in Jakarta.
