Mitsubishi Electric to supply elevators to AIIMS in Himachal Pradesh

Mitsubishi Elevator India Private Limited recently announced that it has secured a major order from the ‘All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS), Bilaspur, Himachal Pradesh.’ The order consists of a total of 64 elevators, including 48 of a model that is exclusive to the Indian market, at this Indian government-owned medical facility, which houses a hospital and a national medical institute. By means of these high quality elevators and services, Mitsubishi Elevator India aims to provide the safe and reliable vertical transportation required by medical facilities. This order is a big boost to Mitsubishi Elevator India’s “Make in India” program under which the company started Manufacturing in India in 2016 and has been expanding production and portfolio for the Indian market. Of the 64 elevators, 48 are “NEXIEZ-LITE MRL,” models designed exclusively for the Indian market which were released in April 2019 and are manufactured by IMEC. They are equipped with specific functionality required in India such as automatic emergency landing devices, which operate in the case of a power failure, as standard. The model uses a gearless traction machine with a permanent magnet motor, leading to reduced power consumption. The use of  locally produced products contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions during transportation.
