TK Elevator presents ropeless MULTI mobility solution at German Pavilion of Expo 2020 Dubai
TK Elevator, is taking part in this year’s Expo 2020 Dubai starting on October 1st, 2021. The innovative and pioneering ropeless elevator system MULTI was selected as one of the lighthouse projects to be presented at the German Pavilion ‘CAMPUS GERMANY’ by the Pavilion Consortium.
From October 2021 to March 31st, 2022, more than 190 countries will seize the chance to present their most sophisticated technologies at the Expo 2020.
MULTI changes the way people move inside buildings and unlocks attractive new perspectives for planners, architects, and operators. The solution for high-rise buildings requires fewer and smaller shafts and hence increases the proportion of usable space significantly. Since current elevator systems usually occupy up to 40 percent of the building’s floor space, MULTI is a true gamechanger.
The solution uses linear motors to move the cabins and needs no ropes at all. MULTI can move vertically as well as horizontally. There are multiple cabins per shaft, which offers a significant higher shaft utilization and reduced waiting times for passengers. With its top speed of max. six m/s, MULTI supports the optimization of installed grid power. Moreover, this allows to better manage a building’s energy needs and cuts the costs caused by investments in the power supply infrastructure.
Through its capabilities, MULTI opens up exciting new perspectives especially for designers and architects not only for buildings that exceed 300 m in height but for the complete urban space and its mobility needs. And even for a completely new thinking of vertical city-development.
“At the German Pavilion at the Expo 2020 Dubai, TK Elevator will demonstrate its versatility and potential regarding innovative mobility solutions. Being an important business hub, Dubai is one of the best suited locations to demonstrate MULTI’s capabilities. As one of the leading players in the elevator industry, we offer the most comprehensive urban mobility portfolio – and MULTI is one of its true highlights”, says Peter Walker, CEO of TK Elevator.
Although Messe München does have a tried-and-tested hygiene concept, BAU, the world’s leading trade fair for architecture, materials and systems, will not be held from January 11 to 16, 2021 as a conventional in-person event. This was the clear decision from today’s Messe München meeting with the Advisory Board and Board of Trustees of BAU. Instead, there will be a hybrid format from January 13 to 15, 2021, offering exhibitors the opportunity to present their innovations to a wide audience.
