Doha, Qatar – Düsseldorf, Germany: TK Elevator makes a significant contribution to the development of the unique residential, commercial and mall complex, Doha Oasis in Qatar. With more than 170 transport systems, the company provides maximum indoor mobility efficiently, safely and comfortably.
Doha Oasis exhibits the typical challenges associated with rapid urbanization. These include ensuring the highest possible transportation capacity as well as maximum energy efficiency and space utilization. TK Elevator is meeting these requirements – among other things – with two TWIN elevator systems, the only elevators with two cabins operating independently in one single shaft. They have lower energy requirements and allow faster passenger transportation. TWIN can move up to 40 percent more passengers than conventional elevators. Due to a smaller number of shafts, TWIN occupies up to 50 percent less space. This creates additional commercial usable area and offers architects greater design freedom.
Peter Walker, CEO at TK Elevator, says: “With our solutions specially adapted to the needs of Doha Oasis, we offer all passengers a smooth, safe and comfortable mobility experience, and operators the best possible building utilization. TK Elevator stands for German engineering excellence and thus for quality, innovation and efficiency. Doha Oasis perfectly showcases the possibilities our sophisticated technologies offer – in commercial and planning terms, as well as with regard to user experience.”
Doha Oasis is located in the heart of Doha, the capital of Qatar. The mixed-use project with a total construction area of 470,000 square meters includes a 28-storey, 7-star hotel tower with 245 luxury residential apartments, penthouses and numerous stores. In addition, this development encompasses the first indoor amusement theme park in Qatar.
