Finnish firm KONE has landed an order for 131 elevators and escalators for District 8 - a new cluster of seven, high-rise towers in the Indonesian capital, Jakarta.

The towers will be built in Jakarta's central business district and will be a mix of commerclal and office space, as well as a shopping mall.

The tallest of the towers will be around 60 storeys, or 250m high. The firm said that 18 of the escalators serving the offices will be double-deck units with hybrid destination control and access control systems.

The development is being built by the Agung Sedayu Group.

Noud Veeger, Kone executive vice-president for the Middle East and Asia Pacific region, said: "With a population of 28mn, Jakarta is one of the world's largest urban areas and we look forward to being part of reshaping the city's rapidly developing landscape with our energy-saving solutions."
