EMSD releases update on lift incident at Paris Court of Sheungshui Town Centre

Hong Kong (HKSAR) -      The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) announces today (May 12) that, except the concerned lift no. 5 at Paris Court, EMSD together with the concerned lift contractor has completed examinations to the remaining seven passenger lifts and two goods lifts at Sheungshui Town Centre early this morning. The lifts are confirmed safe and their operation has been resumed.  

     As the investigation is still in progress, the lift concerned is under suspension. According to the preliminary investigation, the suspension ropes of the lift are intact and the EMSD will investigate whether the incident is related to the failure of the lift control system and/or mechanical failure of the traction system.

The lift concerned also has to be checked by a registered lift engineer to ensure safety before resumption of operation. 

     The EMSD has also requested other registered lift contractors who are currently maintaining the same brand of lifts to complete special inspections within two weeks. The EMSD will carry out sample checks for the special inspections to ensure safety.
