February 11, 2014

KONE Corporation, press release, 11 February 2014

KONE has won an order to provide 146 lifts to a large-scale residential development in Ankara, Turkey. In the first phase, Sinpas Altinoran will have a total of 2,450 apartments in 70 buildings with heights ranging from six storeys to as high as 40 storeys. KONE's eco-efficient solutions will ensure the smooth people flow of the residents within and in between the buildings.

KONE was involved from the early stages of the project and will now supply 97 KONE N MonoSpace®, 34 N MiniSpace(TM), 14 S MiniSpace(TM) and one KONE TranSys(TM) freight lift. All of the lifts come equipped with the energy-efficient KONE EcoDisc® hoisting machine. Further energy savings will be achieved with advanced standby solutions, which power down the lift when it is not in use, as well as regenerative drives, which recycle energy for immediate reuse within the building and cuts consumption by up to 20%.

Located in Çankaya, the most valuable area right in the centre of Ankara; covering an area of 1,850,000 m2, Altinoran is Turkey's largest residential project with its recreational facilities. A 65-hectare area features a lake, woods, swimming pools, an ice-skating rink, skiing slopes with artificial snow and Turkey's first skywalk platform.

"We are pleased to work again with Sinpas Yapi Industry on Turkey's largest residential development. We are very happy to match our eco-efficient solutions to the various requirements in order to ensure smooth people flow of the residents", said Pierre Liautaud, Executive Vice President and Area Director for KONE West and South Europe.

Sinpas Altinoran is being developed and constructed by Istanbul-based Sinpas Yapi Endüstrisi ve Ticaret A.S. KONE will deliver the lifts during 2014-2015 and the project is expected to be completed by 2020. The order was booked in the fourth quarter of 2013.
