TIANJIN, November 22, 2016 — Doppio Bay, an upscale urban complex project now under development in Kunming, the capital of China’s southwest Yunan province, has selected 132 energy-efficient Otis Gen2® elevators. 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).
Located near the Lake Dian holiday resort area, Doppio Bay will cover an area of nearly 2.7 million square meters. Composed of high-end prestigious residential buildings, commercial and business centers, and abundant entertainment, cultural and educational resources, developers anticipate the community will become a new sought-after address. Otis Elevator China Co., Ltd. (Otis China) will deliver the units.
The energy-efficient Otis Gen2 elevators utilize Otis’ patented flat-belt drive technology to replace traditional steel ropes, delivering an enhanced smooth and quiet ride for passengers. Equipped with the Otis ReGen™ drive, the Gen2 elevator is more compact than conventional geared machines with non-regenerative drives and capable of reducing overall elevator energy consumption. These features help developers and owners to build and manage their properties with higher energy efficiency.
“Being selected to participate in this prestigious urban complex project in Kunming is yet another confirmation that Otis’ innovative green technologies are ideal for urban developments in China,” said Luis Molina, president, Otis Elevator (China) Investment Co., Ltd. "By focusing on delivering the superior product quality and service excellence that this segment demands, Otis China continues to extend our footprint in the high-end real estate segment in West China.”
