Welcome to the Elevator World News Podcast. This week’s news podcast is sponsored by THYSSENKRUPP DISTRIBUTOR WINS BERMUDA AIRPORT CONTRACT Bermuda Elevator Systems, Ltd., exclusive thyssenkrupp Elevator distributor for the British overseas territory, has won a contract to provide five Synergy elevators and four Tugela escalators to the new terminal at L.F. Wade International Airport. Located approximately 7 mi. from the Bermuda capital of Hamilton, the airport's new terminal is scheduled for completion in 2020. The Royal Gazette reports the project is being implemented under a government-to-government agreement between Canada and Bermuda, with Aecon Group as partner. Besides making the building fully accessible, the new elevators and escalators will be equipped with after-hours shutdown capability to conserve energy.
