World’s First Ropeless Horizontal-Vertical Elevator System - continued
From Concept To Reality
The very first MULTI will be installed in OVG Real Estate’s new building in Berlin. OVG is known by its cutting-edge project, The Edge, that is renowned worldwide for earning the title of ‘world’s most sustainable office building’.
Advanced Test Tower Facility
MULTI’s inaugural ride took place at the 246-metre test tower in Rottweil, home to thyssenkrupp’s Research & Development Center in Germany.
The tower is specifically designed with the future in mind. Here thyssenkrupp tests and certifies innovations in elevator technology.
With 12 test shafts and travel speeds of up to 18 metres per second, the tower offers unprecedented possibilities to meet the challenges ahead for the buildings and cities of the future.
Three shafts are dedicated to testing the cable-less MULTI elevator system.
Coen van Oostrom, CEO OVG Real Estate says:
We are absolutely delighted to partner with thyssenkrupp and to have the very first MULTI installed in our latest project, The East Side Tower in Berlin. The building – adjacent to the Mercedes-Benz Arena and neighbour to Warschauer Strasse – is set to become a new landmark on the Berlin skyline.
What drives OVG is continuous innovation in smart technology, sustainability and well-being, which keeps our company one step ahead of the rest. The forward-thinking new technology that MULTI brings to our flagship project, is a perfect fit for us.
