Xizi Otis Elevator (Xizi Otis) has secured three new rail projects in China to provide a total of 207 new elevators and escalators.

The new elevators and escalators will be installed at Chengdu Metro Line 10, Wuhan Metro Airport Line and the Guizhou West section of the Shanghai-Kunming Railway.

As part of the contract, Xizi Otis will deliver 82 elevators and escalators to Chengdu Metro Line 10, which will connect Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport with the city centre and existing metro network when it begins operation by the end of this year.

"Xizi Otis is very pleased to continue its support of China’s growing transportation network by providing safe and reliable elevators and escalators to the riding public."

The deal will see Xizi Otis provide four Regen-M elevators, 23 high-efficiency Gen2 elevators and 55 XO21NP escalators to Line 10.

The company has already provided 500 elevators and escalators for Lines 1, 3 and 7 of Chengdu Metro.
