Hitachi Lift India has bagged an order of 49 elevators and escalators units from Embassy Group for it upcoming project Embassy Manyata, which is the biggest office park to be constructed in Bengaluru.
In Embassy Manyata, two office blocks, two international-brand hotels and a convention centre are to be constructed. All facilities are estimated to be completed in FY 2022, Hitachi said in a statement. “This time, Hitachi Building Systems and Hitachi Lift India will deliver 22 elevators for office blocks, 13 elevators in two hotels, and 10 elevators and four escalators in a convention centre.”
The site will facilitate comfortable passenger transportation by adopting a destination floor reservation system which assigns an elevator immediately to passengers on registering destinations in the lobby and activates lighting to efficiently indicate the assigned elevator, and future reference-trajectory control, a group control system aiming to minimize waiting by predicting future travel needs from learned operation patterns.Moreover, the car designs of high-speed elevators are customized.
The new installation market for elevators and escalators in India exceeds 50,000 units per year, making it the world’s second largest market, with strong potential for continued steady growth. In January 2008, Hitachi established Hitachi Lift India and installed a large number of elevators and escalators for luxury apartments, hotels and office buildings, mainly in major cities such as Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Pune, Hyderabad and Ahmedabad.
The company further added that moving forward, it will globally supply safe, secure and comfortable elevators and escalators as well as services that help resolve customers’ various issues in urban spaces to contribute to a sustainable society.
