Otis to supply elevators to Bengaluru Metro project

Otis Elevator Co. will be providing 112 Gen2 elevators for the second phase of the project

The Bengaluru Metro project, also known as the Namma Metro project, is expected to be India’s third longest metro network once complete. In 2018, its riding network boasted a recorded annual ridership of 131.7 million. It is
conducted by Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (BMRCL). Otis – a unit of United Technologies Corp.– is set to supply 112 Gen2 elevators from its local manufacturing facility in Bengaluru for the second phase of the project.

Sebi Joseph, president, Otis India, commented, “This project reflects our deep commitment to the Make In India initiative. Our units will help keep the people of India moving and also support the country’s efforts to drive local indigenous manufacturing by using our state-of-the-art Bengaluru facility.” The facility – which is Gold rated by the Indian Green Building Council – produces a bulk of India’s Gen2 elevators, reducing overall energy consumption rates up to 75 percent.

The metro project’s second phase is expected to be completed by 2023. It will cover 27 stations connecting the city’s manufacturing and tech hubs of Electronics City and Whitefield. It is overseen by BMRCL, which serves as a special purpose entity between the Government of India and the Government of Karnataka.
