KONE has a long history of designing, implementing, maintaining and modernizing elevator and escalator solutions for demanding hospital environments. By taking each phase of the equipment's lifetime into consideration, KONE works to keep the facility operating at maximum service, with a low total cost of ownership.
The cost of owning an elevator is made up of three components: the purchase price, the cost of maintenance, and the operating expenses. Thanks to their dependability and energy-efficiency, KONE elevators significantly reduce the total cost of ownership. The annual energy consumption of a typical mid-size elevator can be reduced from over 20,000 KWh to one-third by utilizing the KONE EcoDisc hoisting machine. The latest KONE energy saving options can squeeze this consumption even further, to close to 5,000 KWh/year.
