Hitachi Receives Batch Order for 14 Elevators for Nathani Heights Residential
Project in Mumbai, India 
Order to Include One of the Fastest Elevators in India 
Tokyo, May 28, 2014 - (JCN Newswire) -  Hitachi, Ltd. ("Hitachi" /
TSE: 6501), Hitachi Elevator Asia Pte. Ltd. ("Hitachi Elevator
Asia"), which is the supervising company for Hitachi's elevator
business in Southeast Asia, India, and the Middle East, and Hitachi Lift India
Pvt. Ltd. ("Hitachi Lift India"), which is an elevator and escalator
marketing and service company in India, today announced that they have been
awarded a batch order for 14 units of elevators. This order includes 4 units of
6m/sec ultra-high speed elevators, which will be some of the fastest elevators
in India. These ultra-high speed elevators will be installed in a premium
72-story residential project known as Nathani Heights, which will be located in
Nathani Heights, is scheduled for completion in 2016 and will be located in
the upmarket Mumbai Central area, which is on the west coast of India. The
72-story residence will be one of the tallest residential buildings in Mumbai.
In addition to the residential units, the luxury complex will also include a
commercial facility, a fully equipped gym, a swimming pool, a mini theatre and
other amenities. 
Hitachi's 6m/sec ultra-high speed elevators will be equipped with many
state-of-the art features including earthquake operation functionality, which
enables lifts to evacuate rapidly to the nearest floor when its sensors detect
that the building is swaying as the result of an earthquake. Another feature,
Hitachi's "Destination Floor Reservation System," enables users
to register their destination floors in advance before the car arrives so that
elevators can be allocated to users based on their destination floors. By
combining passengers going to the same destination floors, this system
alleviates congestion and increases overall vertical transport efficiency in
the building. The building will also have several other high speed elevators
including a 4m/sec speed glass lift, which will be the fastest scenic type
elevator of its kind in India.*

operations in the elevator and escalator market. Since then, it has secured
