United Technologies Unit Otis Wins Order for 54 Elevators

United Technologies unit Otis, which makes elevators and escalators, said Tuesday it has won a contract to supply 54 lifts and modernizing two existing ones for the O-Train Confederation Line, the first leg of Ottawa’s electric Light Rail Transit (LRT) system.

The more than $2 billion O-Train Confederation Line is Ottawa’s largest infrastructure project since 1832, Ottawa-based Otis said on Tuesday. Financial terms of the contract weren’t disclosed. Preliminary construction of the LRT system began in the spring of 2013, with planned full service in 2018.
