Otis Elevator Company, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), has won a 59-unit contract that features the first Compass(TM) destination entry system sold in the United Arab Emirates.

The contract calls for Otis to provide 53 elevators and six escalators in two oval-shaped office and residential towers, which are part of a sweeping development on Al Reem Island, a 2.5-square mile natural island on the Arabian Gulf located 300 meters off the coast of downtown Abu Dhabi.

With the Compass system, passengers enter their destinations before boarding the elevator. The system immediately assigns passengers traveling to nearby floors to the same elevator, reducing wait and travel times, and eliminating crowding in front of elevator doors.

"We are proud to be involved in this prestigious development and pleased to provide our industry-leading Compass technology," said Otis President Ari Bousbib. "For thousands of residents and visitors it will mean quicker and more efficient travel to their destinations."

The towers are being built on a four-story, 400,000-square foot podium that will house a shopping mall. One of the towers is 72 stories and 292 meters high and the other is 60 stories and 276 meters high. Otis' contract is with The Arabian Construction Co.

Otis Elevator Company is the world's largest manufacturer and maintainer of people-moving products including elevators, escalators and moving walkways. With headquarters in Farmington, Connecticut, Otis employs 62,000 people, offers products and services in more than 200 countries and territories and maintains 1.6 million elevators and escalators worldwide. United Technologies Corp., based in Hartford, Connecticut, is a diversified company providing high technology products and services to the building and aerospace industries.
