It was certainly a milestone when KONE lifts made it to the 22nd floor of the Portomaso Tower. Mekanika was chosen for a full implementation of 3 lifts in 2012 in the portomaso Tower – currently the highest lift shafts in Malta. This project presented unique demands and challenges, and Mekanika literally rose to the challenge to offer unsurpassed quality and reliability.
Mekanika provided a turnkey solution for all mechanical, electrical and extra low voltage solutions in this building; including 4 Kone lifts, 25 VRF outdoor units and 250 indoor units, as well as TAC access control systems and Sanyo security systems. The building consists of 11,000 square meters of commercial and office space.
Mekanika was also awarded the contract to install all the lifts for the new luxury lifestyle development Pender Gardens, in St Julian’s. In a first for Malta, KONE lifts will transport people both horizontally and vertically using 52 lifts and 2 escalators. It is the largest single project that the company has been awarded and is proof that Mekanika can ably provide a complete service to its customers no matter the size or requirements of the project.
Mekanika was also awarded a €1.95 million contract by Gasco Energy Ltd. The contract involves the commissioning of mechanical and electrical services, as well as the supply, installation and maintenance of lifts and air-conditioning at the new €20 million LPG cylinder-filling plant in Benghajsa.
