Kone, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, has won an order to modernize the elevators at 14 metro stations of the MTR (Mass Transit System) system in Hong Kong, China.
The MTR system includes 93 stations and 68 light rail stops and has an average weekday patronage of about 5.8 million passengers. KONE will supply 26 KONE MonoSpace® machine-room-less elevators to replace existing hydraulic passenger elevators at 14 stations of the transport network.
“Hong Kong’s MTR system is widely considered as one of the best urban transit systems in the world. I am proud that our solutions, which demonstrate the knowhow. Kone has gained from demanding infrastructure projects around the globe, will enhance the journeys of the city’s commuters and visitors,” said William B. Johnson, executive vice president for KONE Greater China.
Kone booked the order in the fourth quarter of 2018.
