KONE OYJ: KONE to equip Middle East's biggest health campus in Adana, Turkey

KONE Corporation, press release, May 12, 2016

KONE, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, will install 130
elevators and escalators at the Adana Integrated Health Campus Project in
Adana, Southern Turkey. The development is set to become the biggest health
campus in the Middle East region, comprising of three hospitals with a total
capacity of 1,550 beds.

The main hospital consists of four patient tower blocks surrounding a common
core and will have 1,300 beds. In addition to serving as a general hospital,
it will include specialized hospitals for oncology, cardiology and
cardiovascular disease, women's and maternal health, and pediatrics. The
development will also include a physical therapy and rehabilitation hospital
as well as a high security criminal psychiatric hospital. The campus will
house health support facilities, a commercial area, a helipad, a technical
unit building, and a combined cooling, heat and power plant.

Staff, patients and visitors will be able to move around the
earthquake-protected buildings using 100 KONE MonoSpace® elevators, four KONE
TranSys(TM) freight elevators, and 26 KONE TravelMaster® escalators.

"We are proud of this deal, which allows us to offer our eco-efficient
technology for this state-of-the-art health campus," said Pierre Liautaud,
Executive Vice President for KONE South Europe, Middle East and Africa.
"Ensuring the smooth flow of people is of utmost importance in hospital
settings, where no one has time for unnecessary delays. We are happy to be
able to offer our solutions for the benefit of everyone on the campus."

Expected to be completed at the end of December 2016, the Turkish Ministry of
Health project is set to become the world's biggest base-isolated structure,
a reference to the technique used to construct a building away from direct
contact with the ground to minimize earthquake damage. The Adana Integrated
Health Campus will sit on 1,512 isolators, or flexible bearings, which will
minimize building movement during an earthquake.

The main contractor and architect of the project is RMI RONESANS MEDIKAL
TAAH.INS.A.S.

The order was booked in the first quarter of 2016.
