…ZIEHL-ABEGG elevator motors ensure reliable transport of man and machine in the world’s most exposed building systems

01/19  A building vision becomes reality and with it, drive technology from ZIEHL-ABEGG
Taipei has another Skyscraper. Only about one kilometre away from the well-known financial district with its highest tower in Taiwan – Taiwan Tower 101, stands the new, unique and distinctive Tao Zhu Yin Yuan Residential Tower. The visionary mammoth building is characterised by a large cylindrical core flanked on two opposite sides by almost rectangular living spaces. Each of the 21 floors rotates by 4.5 degrees compared to the previous floor with a total rotation of 90 degrees. An unbelievable constructive and structural challenge, which in the end becomes an absolutely worth seeing, futuristic highlight. But it was not just the design that played an important role in this grandiose construction project for the decision-makers, participants and executing companies, it was also the highest standards of sustainability, state-of-the-art technology and, of course, comfort features that leave nothing to be desired. Among other things, the tower is equipped with an oversized car and freight elevator. This elevator is intended to give future owners of the individual floors the convenience of transporting works of art or paintings of the largest dimensions, concert grand pianos, furniture or even their own sports car to its floor. Here ZIEHL-ABEGG scored with its blue technology and was awarded the contract for this attractive order for the ZAtop SM250.80D elevator motor.

The high energy efficiency values of the modern elevator technology, which despite the immense, powerful drive potential and highly sensitive motion technology, allows the elevator to travel and brake smoothly, as well as the low CO2 emissions of the drive, convinced the clients and made ZAtop the winner of this elevator project in one of Taipei’s most impressive buildings.

Completed in 2018, the Tao Zhu Yin Yuan Residential Tower was awarded Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).
