The Paris district ‘La Defense’ will become home to a new skyscraper, featuring thyssenkrupp's TWIN elevators with two cabins instead of just one moving in the same shaft. thyssenkrupp Elevator will deliver twelve TWIN elevators, a technology that frees up floor space while increasing passenger transport.

Hekla Tower with its 66,000m2 of office space will become an iconic feature in the redesign of the district, including a green footpath modelled on the famous High Line in New York City.

"The forward-looking concept of the TWIN solution played a decisive role in the development of the project, as it perfectly accommodates the tower's high standards and demanding transport capacity, without occupying additional floor-space with more elevator shafts," commented Peter Walker, CEO of thyssenkrupp Elevator.

By 2022, the TWIN elevators will be moving people in the building at a speed of seven meters per second.

TWIN solutions will also give a boost to other global hotspots by 2022. In the financial district of Chengdu in China, 24 TWIN custom-made elevators will be installed at two new impressive office towers, each 250m high.
