Monday October 17, 2016. Shenzhen, China. Karl-Otto Schoellkopf of Thyssenkrupp presents at the 2016 China Conference Session 2c: The State of the Art (Technologies).
The trend of growing cities with permanently increasing populations will require new and visionary solutions for mobility in urban areas. Moving people as we are used to do today – either by individual cars, buses, taxis, etc., will lead to chaotic traffic conditions, high environmental impacts and a poor quality of life. This presentation will show new approaches in technology to improve connections and network links to and between public transportation systems like metros, etc. Increasing the height of buildings demands an increasing number of vertical transportation equipment, requiring more elevators with more vertical hoistway with more demands on space in the building’s footprint. New innovations in technology, like thyssenkrupp’s MULTI® as a the first rope less elevator system and TWIN®, would allow for better transportation and building efficiency by means of multiple car systems in reduced hoistway space. We will explore different possibilities of vertical transportation in high-rise buildings. In the end, the right combination of elevator systems will be the key for an efficient solution.
