Phase 1 of the Chongqing Metro Line 10 is expected to come into service in late 2017 with 274 Otis escalators serving 19 stations. The new line will be supported by the Otis Metro Maintenance Management System with around-the-clock maintenance service to help support operations reliability. Otis, the world’s leading manufacturer and maintainer of people-moving products, including elevators, escalators and moving walkways, is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

The Chongqing Metro network currently stretches more than 202 kilometers, with nine metro lines in operation or under construction. Scheduled to open in late 2017, Phase 1 of Line 10 will add 33 kilometers to the network to link the other nine lines and form a circular route serving Chongqing city. Otis Elevator (China) Co., Ltd., a local Otis entity, will provide the escalators.

The Otis Metro Maintenance Management System serving Chongqing Metro is designed to meet the unique requirements of China’s metro networks. The service system was introduced to China in 2013 to provide timely service support with mechanics stationed in metro premises in key cities including Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, Shenzhen and Chengdu.

“Our involvement in Chongqing Metro Line 10 reconfirms Otis as a trusted supplier of China’s expanding metro networks with proven technologies and services,” said Luis Molina, president, Otis Elevator (China) Investment Co. Ltd. “We are honored that Otis escalators are supporting the expansion of Chongqing Metro into a significant transport hub in western China.”

Otis is dedicated to supporting China’s expanding metro system as urbanization continues. In the past year alone, Otis has been involved with several significant metro network expansions, including those in Tianjin, Wuhan, Chengdu and Xi’an.
