KONE Oyj: Shenzhen's sustainable skyscraper in China to feature KONE's people flow solutions

KONE Corporation, press release, April 1, 2015

KONE, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, will deliver 28
eco-efficient elevators to Shenzhen International Energy Mansion, the new
headquarters of Shenzhen Energy Group, the largest state-owned enterprise in
Shenzhen. KONE was chosen as key equipment supplier for its ability to meet
the requirements of the design specifications and its high-level focus on
eco-efficiency.

Designed by world-renowned architecture firms BIG and ARUP, Shenzhen
International Energy Mansion will include two 218m and 116m tall towers and
its total construction area will be 143,000 square meters. Planned to
withstand the tropical climate of the city, the building complex will feature
a unique 'folding façade' system that shades the interior from the sun. With
this environmentally intelligent design and KONE's sustainable people flow
solutions, Shenzhen International Energy Mansion will become a new benchmark
for sustainable office buildings in the city.

Shenzhen International Energy Mansion will feature 28 eco-efficient KONE
MiniSpace(TM) elevators and remote KONE E-Link(TM) monitoring system which
connects the elevators to the building's facility management system. Located
in the central political, cultural and business district of the city, the
building is due for completion in 2017.

"We are proud that our people flow solutions will be featured in these modern
eco-towers to ensure the best possible flow of workers and visitors," says
William B. Johnson, Executive Vice President for KONE Greater China.

The order was booked in the fourth quarter of 2014.
