Mitsubishi Electric to Supply Fastest Elevators in South Korea

Max. 600-meter-per-minute elevators will be installed in LCT Landmark Tower

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced today that it has secured an order to deliver two elevators capable of ascending 600 meters per minute, which is expected to make them the fastest elevators in South Korea, according to Mitsubishi Electric research, when they are installed in the LCT Landmark Tower in Haeundae, Busan, in 2019.

LCT will be a major complex consisting of four buildings: The Landmark Tower (411.6 meters high and 101 floors) housing a hotel and a residential hotel; two residential towers (339 meters and 331 meters high, and both 85 floors); and one podium tower (7 floors) connecting the three high rises. A total of 78 elevators for the three high rises will be manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric (Inazawa Works, Japan) and Mitsubishi Elevator Korea Co., Ltd. (KMEC)

The order was placed by POSCO Engineering & Construction, Ltd. Deliveries will begin in December 2016 and construction of the high rises is scheduled to finish in 2019. 


  • The two 600-meter-per-minute elevators will carry passengers from the first floor to the 100th floor in about 52 seconds. The 383.5 meters of travel will be the longest distance covered by any elevator in South Korea.
  • Superior riding comfort, silence and safety will be ensured by Mitsubishi Electric’s cutting-edge innovations for ultra-high-speed elevators, such as advanced drive and control equipment, streamlined aerodynamic car covers, active roller guides and various safety devices.
