Casting a Glance Into the Future of Mobility: thyssenkrupp Shows Ropeless MULTI in the German Pavilion at EXPO 2020 Dubai
ESSEN, Germany and DUBAI, UAE, July 12, 2019 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

When EXPO 2020 opens its doors in Dubai in October 2020, the world's first 
ropeless elevator for skyscrapers will be featured prominently. thyssenkrupp 
Elevator's pioneering system was selected as one of the EXPO's lighthouse 
projects, and will be presented by the German Federal Ministry for Economic 
Affairs and Energy in the German Pavilion.

"Dubai is a city that provides a platform for inventions, attracting people and 
businesses from around the world. MULTI will support this aim, demonstrating to 
those at EXPO 2020 how technology can improve urban mobility," says Peter 
Walker, CEO at thyssenkrupp Elevator. 

The MULTI revolution changes the way people move inside buildings, providing 
completely new perspectives for architects, real estate owners and passengers. 
By employing linear motors for each cabin, no ropes are needed at all – and 
MULTI can move vertically as well as horizontally. Without ropes, MULTI enables 
the construction of much higher buildings in cities. As it requires fewer 
shafts, valuable floor space is freed up for apartments.

At EXPO 2020, MULTI will demonstrate how various transportation solutions, from 
underground logistics to air-taxis, can be interconnected with ropeless 
elevators. Skybridges powered by the horizontally-moving MULTI will lift 
passenger transportation to a whole new level.

MULTI was unveiled in 2017 at thyssenkrupp's 800-foot tall, state-of-the-art 
test tower in Rottweil, Germany. The innovation is currently undergoing testing 
and certification in Rottweil.
