MULTI by thyssenkrupp | Revolutionary new elevator system


The world’s first rope-free elevator MULTI is set to revolutionize tall building construction. MULTI harnesses the power of linear motor technology to move multiple cars in a single shaft both vertically and horizontally! Introducing the elevator industry’s holy grail and the end of the 160-year reign of the rope-dependent elevator. With MULTI by thyssenkrupp, new tall buildings will reduce their waiting times, significantly increase capacity, smaller footprint and substantially reduced weight. The MULTI will find its first home in Berlin at OVG’s East Side Tower. The system would allow a completely different approach in building a big hotel. We wonder when we will spot the first hotels with this elevator system!

Why MULTI is necessary

“Buildings are becoming like vertical cities, and they need a flexible transport system similar to a metro. Speed alone does not solve the challenges posed by tall buildings.” According Markus Jetter, Head of Research at thyssenkrupp Elevator. The very first MULTI will be installed at OVG Real Estate’s new East Side Tower in Berlin. The building – adjacent to the Mercedes-Benz Arena and neighbour to Warschauer Strasse – is set to become a new landmark on the Berlin skyline. OVG is already known for cutting-edge projects like The Edge in Amsterdam, renowned worldwide for earning the ‘world’s most sustainable office building’ title. Coen van Oostrom, CEO OVG Real Estate says: “We are absolutely delighted to partner with thyssenkrupp and to have the very first MULTI installed in our latest project. The forward-thinking, new technology that MULTI brings to our flagship project is a perfect fit for us.” Download the brochure here or check out their blog #engineered for more information.
