Twin Elevator System Makes American Debut

Thyssenkrupp has launched into the USA its Twin technology, which enables two elevator cabs to operate independently in one shaft.

The company will install the first Twin elevator system in the western hemisphere at Atlanta’s Technology Square. According to Thyssenkrup, the system makes the most efficient use of available space, uses less energy and transports up to 40% more passengers than conventional elevators.

Each Twin elevator has its own major mechanical and electrical components and shares the same guide rails and landing doors in a single elevator shaft.

The technology will be installed in the Atlanta’s Technology Square, a computing center operated by Georgia Tech. Thyssenkrupp’s installation will begin in 2018 and include five Twin elevators, seven conventional elevators and two escalators within the 25-story project that will contain about 750,000 square-feet of office, retail and data center space.

“Twin is currently the smartest solution for new projects or existing buildings with increased traffic,” explains Andreas Schierenbeck, CEO of Thyssenkrupp Elevator. “It requires a smaller footprint than conventional elevators, leaving more leasable space. The unique solution with one-of-its-kind features provides architects with more space and freedom to design.”

In South Korea, Thyssenkrupp recently sealed the order for 16 Twin systems for AmorePacific’s new headquarters.
