MUMBAI, India, June 8, 2016 — Otis India will provide state-of-the-art, high-speed elevators to the Indiabulls BLU project in Worli, Mumbai. Indiabulls BLU is an ultra-luxury residential project located in South Mumbai’s most upscale and coveted neighborhood. The project will provide luxurious sea-facing apartments with ultra-modern facilities. Otis, the world’s largest manufacturer and maintainer of people-moving products, is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
Three of the four towers in the project will be served by 37 Otis elevators, including 18 SkyRise® elevators, with speeds of four meters per second. These towers will soar above the 200 meter mark and feature Otis’ CompassPlus™ destination dispatch technology. Installation of the elevators will be done using scaffold-less methodology, which can improve work-site safety, reduce cost and installation time.
SkyRise is Otis’ premier high-rise elevator system. Each SkyRise installation integrates advanced technologies to promote the seamless, safe operation of the entire system. The sustainable design reduces space requirements and energy use compared to conventional systems. CompassPlus destination dispatch uses Otis’ patented Smart Grouping technology to organize travel by grouping passengers and stops to get people where they are going up to 50 percent faster than conventional dispatching systems and up to 27 percent more energy efficient.
“Over the last 60 years of operation in India, Otis has constantly proved as a leading global player with a range of robust products and excellent service. Their competency in the high-rise segment is second to none. Right from the planning stage, the Otis India team was flexible and aligned with the overall concept of the project. Otis was a natural choice for BLU,” said Mr. Vishal Damani – Joint M.D. of Indiabulls Real Estate Limited.
