thyssenkrupp receives China's largest TWIN order



  • The contract includes 8 TWIN elevators for the group’s new headquarters in Beijing;
  • TWIN, the first elevator system with two independent cars in one shaft, supports thyssenkrupp’s commitment to providing innovative solutions to improve urban mobility.


thyssenkrupp celebrates another addition to its TWIN portfolio, having secured a contract for 41 transportation units, including 8 TWIN elevators, for the Sunshine Insurance Group’s new headquarters in Beijing, China. Sunshine Insurance is one of China’s largest insurance companies.


Space efficiency was the client’s key concern. thyssenkrupp’s innovative TWIN solution, capable of space savings up to 30 percent, offered the required space efficiency along with the benefit of separate elevator cars.


The TWIN elevator system enables one cab to be parked while the other stays in operation. When passenger volume is low, no energy is consumed by empty moving cars. Thus, TWIN helps save energy and with two cars in one shaft, can transport up to 40 percent more passengers than conventional elevators.


In 2017 thyssenkrupp will begin the installation of 8 TWIN elevators, 17 conventional elevators and 16 escalators within the 49-storey building containing an area of approximately 132,471 square feet.


thyssenkrupp will soon begin testing some of its game-changing mobility technologies at its upcoming test towers in Rottweil, Germany, and Zongshan, China; the test towers are set to become a key part of thyssenkrupp’s global innovation network.
