KONE wins order for one of the new Grand Paris Express metro lines in France

KONE was selected by Société du Grand Paris (SGP) to deliver elevators in the stations and related buildings across part of the southern section of line 15 of the Grand Paris Express metro. The 33-kilometer-long southern section of line 15 will pass through 22 municipalities and is expected to serve over a million local residents, with 300,000 trips per day. Each station on the line will connect directly with metro, tram, bus or the RER commuter train lines.

KONE will work together with SGP to provide and install over 70 KONE MonoSpace® elevators, which are currently expected to be in service in 2025. The KONE MonoSpace® elevators with the KONE EcoDisc® traction technology, renowned for its reliability and energy-efficiency, will enable smooth and safe transport to and from the platforms. In order to provide safety without compromising on the aesthetics required by SGP, KONE has designed elevators using glass walls, with the option of opaque or transparent glass.

"We're very proud to be involved in this impressive project and help provide smooth and safe people flow for passengers along this new high-capacity line in one the busiest metro systems in the world," said Pierre Liautaud, Executive Vice President for KONE South Europe, Middle East and Africa.

KONE booked the order in the second quarter of 2020.
