KONE on board to expand Bahrain Airport
KONE has won an order to provide 145 elevators and escalators for the new passenger terminal building at Bahrain International Airport (BIA).
The global leader in the elevator and escalator industry KONE will supply 85 elevators, 40 escalators, and 20 autowalks, which will be using the KONE E-Link monitoring system.
The order is part of a wide BIA modernisation project, with the goal to create one of the most modern and futuristic airport buildings in the world. The project is expected to be complete by the second quarter of 2020.
“The economic development in Bahrain has remained robust with its tourism industry expected to grow steadily to almost one billion US dollars by 2020,” says Pierre Liautaud, executive vice president for KONE South Europe, Middle East and Africa, in a release. “We’re extremely proud and excited to play a part in Bahrain’s tourism and public infrastructure development through effective people flow solutions.”
