The MGM International Las Vegas
Keeping equipment up to date is key to optimizing its performance and energy efficiency. In the case of the MGM International Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas (formerly the Mirage), the numbers speak for themselves. ThyssenKrupp completed a modernization on the hotel in 2011, which included 24 passenger elevators and 16 service elevators. There were 22 existing geared machines that were retained and updated with new AC motors, TAC50M controllers with regenerative drives, new door operations, hall fixtures and updated cab interiors. There were 18 new gearless AC machines installed as well. Perhaps the greatest achievement of the project is that during the modernization, we worked with the local power company to document the pre- and post-modernization energy consumption ratings to qualify for incentives programs that totaled $358,000.
And the winning numbers are:
- The 22 modernized elevators resulted in an energy savings of up to $251,191 per year.
- The 18 new gearless elevators resulted in an energy savings of up to $347,887.
