Providing domestic products and service

The contract entails the installation and maintenance of 80 escalators (Schindler 9300AE) and 37 elevators (Schindler 5400 AP) which are produced locally at the Schindler production facilities in Suzhou and Shanghai.

Urban Mobility in the west of China

Schindler already provides mobility solutions to stations serving the lines 1, 3 and 6. Due to the increasing demand for public transportation, line 3 has recently been extended and nine additional stations are to be added to the city’s longest line, running from north to south as well as to Chongqing airport. A further 12 lines are planned for the near future.

Advanced project management

Installation of the elevators and escalators is scheduled to start in December 2012 and should be completed in a year’s time. Schindler’s skilled installation teams have already played a key role in the success of line 3 of the Chongqing monorail system.
