German manufacturer to supply and install 143 units for the emirates biggest shopping centre
Abu Dhabi’s largest developer, Aldar Properties has awarded Germany-based ThyssenKrupp Elevators the contract to supply and install 143 units for the emirate’s biggest shopping centre.
The deal includes 95 elevators, 38 escalators and ten moving walks for the 235,000m2 Yas Mall project, which will feature over 450 shops and restaurants, a 14-screen multiplex cinema, as well as various entertainment facilities.
The 95 machine-room-less elevators, some of which are panoramic, will be powered by a gearless drive machine, located at the top of the shaft. Escalators, moving walks and all elevators will be remote-monitored by a central monitoring system. Boasting around 10,000 parking spaces, the Yas Mall will be Abu Dhabi’s biggest shopping centre and the second-biggest in the UAE.
Completion of the complex is scheduled for the end of 2013.
