Energy-saving Gen2-MR™ honored for technological achievement
Xizi Otis Elevator Co., Ltd.
("Xizi Otis")was recently recognized with a China Machinery Industry Science and Technology Award for its energy-saving Gen2-MR small machine room elevator. Xizi Otis is a subsidiary of Otis Elevator (China) Investment Company Limited, which is a part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
“We are honored to receive this strong recognition for our achievements in using innovative elevator technologies that support green buildings in China,” said Alan Cheung, president, Xizi Otis. “The award further strengthens our drive toward continued use of advanced elevator technologies to create better living and working environments.”
As a safe, reliable and comfortable next-generation, small machine room passenger elevator that delivers exceptional energy conservation, the Gen2-MR was produced by Xizi Otis for the Chinese market, where technologically sophisticated and environmentally responsible green buildings are in high demand. Gen2-MR’s advanced features, particularly its energy efficiency and sustainable design, were recognized by the award’s expert judging panel. The Gen2-MR is the only elevator that was recognized.
The Gen2-MR uses patented Otis technologies, including composite steel flat belts that replace traditional elevator cables to improve efficiency and ride comfort; the compact Gen2® gearless machine that requires minimal machine room space and allows rapid installation; and the innovative ReGen™ drive that makes Gen2 systems up to 75 percent more energy efficient than conventional systems with non-regenerative drives.
The China Machinery Industry Science and Technology Award is one of the highest accolades in China’s machinery segment and is the sector’s only state-approved award. It is endorsed by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the National Office for Science & Technology Awards.
