KONE Corporation, press release, August 5, 2015
KONE, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, has won an order to supply 60 elevators to Sky Park, a highly integrated upcoming development in Cyberjaya, a town within Selangor, Malaysia.
Expected to be an iconic development in the skyline of Klang Valley, Sky Park spills over 11.12 acres of land, where six exclusively designed buildings will stand. The mixed development consists of serviced apartments, small office/flexible office (SoFo) complexes, strata office, commercial office, shopping mall and a sky bridge that links five of the buildings.
KONE will deliver 23 KONE MonoSpace® elevators and 37 KONE MiniSpace® elevators to Sky Park. Out of 60 elevators, 44 will be scenic elevators to complement the unique building design while providing views of Cyberjaya. These elevators can reach a travel speed of 4m/s and are connected to the KONE E-LinkTM monitoring system that provides real-time information and statistical reports on their performance.
"We are elated that our close cooperation with MCT Bhd has resulted in providing the best people flow experience to this uniquely designed development," says Neeraj Sharma, Executive Vice President for KONE Asia Pacific and Middle East.
Sky Park is developed by MCT Bhd and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2017. The order was booked in the second quarter of 2015.
