Welcome to the Elevator World News Podcast. This week’s news podcast is sponsored by elevatorbooks.com: www.elevatorbooks.com OTIS COMPLETES ONE-OF-A-KIND MODERNIZATION IN SHANGHAI Otis Elevator (China) Co. Ltd. recently completed the modernization of the elevator system at the 468-m-tall sightseeing attraction Shanghai Oriental Pearl TV and Radio Tower that included adding an inclined elevator that is the first of its kind in China. The job began in 2017 and is Otis' largest modernization project in China, including 14 Otis elevators. Three sightseeing elevators were upgraded to Skyrise¢ē double-deck units to increase capacity at the attraction, which welcomes more than five million visitors annually. The inclined elevator was installed in a 60¢Ŗ tunnel, presenting challenges that were met by a team of local and international Otis engineering and service experts who "worked day and night for two months to complete the complex installation." The elevator travels at 2.5 mps in a 102-m hoistway and has a capacity of 3000 kg and a slant range of 85 m.
