Kone Corporation, manufacturer of elevators and escalators, has won an order to supply 418 elevators and escalators for line 3 of the Riyadh Metro in Saudi Arabia.

The supply order has been commissioned by Arriyadh Development Authority (ADA).

Kone will equip Riyadh’s metro line 3, the longest out of the six lines in the project, stretching across 41km and spread across 22 stations.

The order comprises 262 Kone escalators and 156 Kone elevators of which 96 will be scenic.

The solutions will be equipped with Kone E-Link monitoring systems.

The line is expected to be in operation by the end of 2020. The order was booked in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Pierre Liautaud, executive vice president for Kone South Europe, Middle East, and Africa, said: “Riyadh is at the centre of fast-paced infrastructure developments with the city’s metro being one of the world’s biggest infrastructure projects.

“We’re extremely proud to be partnering on this project and help fulfil the demands of the growing commuter base.”

In January, Kone won an order to supply 145 elevators and escalators for the new passenger terminal building at Bahrain International Airport (BIA).
