The renovation of elevators in the residential sector in Havana is part of authorities’ programs to solve structural housing problems.
Executives from the Empresa de Montaje y Mantenimiento de Elevadores pointed out that 83 elevators were imported at a total cost of 4.4 million dollars.
They added that 32 elevators are being installed and eight are ready for operation.
According to the experts, that action improves the situation in the residential sector, where nearly 400 elevators need to be replaced due to deterioration.
Russian specialists are providing technical assistance to the Cuban company, as the new equipment and spare parts are being imported from that country.
