CFAO presents its new eco-friendly elevator in Togo

(Togo First) - CFAO Technology & Energy, a subsidiary of CFAO Group (Corporation For Africa & Overseas), wants to advance Togo’s energy transition in the construction sector. 

On Nov. 26, 2020, the international company presented its new range of eco-friendly elevators to architects and other actors of the Togolese construction industry. 

The elevator, named GeN2 Life Switch, can run on clean energy (solar notably). It is destined for homes and residential buildings. Conceived by OTIS, which is a partner of CFAO, the machine uses batteries and can work even during an outage (performing an average of 100 trips on such occasions). 

Equipped with a ReGen Drive recycling mechanism, it can consume 75% less power than a conventional elevator. 

We are in the era of ecologic transition and are thus called to use solar more than other forms of energy,” said Gilbert Fiagian, head of elevators at CFAO T.E. in Togo and Benin. 

So, if some equipment meets these needs, I believe it would be good for our current and future customers to look into them, to be more ecological.” Concerning Togo specifically, Fiagian added: “You are certainly aware that promoting renewable energies is a key component of the national development plan.” 

CFAO Technology & Energy, it should be recalled, is based in France and is active in the ICT, energy, and elevator sectors. For its part, CFAO Group - one of the most well established foreign companies in Africa - is controlled by Japanese giant Toyota Tsusho, since 2012.
