The world’s fastest elevator

Hitachi has said it will install a lift capable of reaching speeds of 72km/h (45mph) into a skyscraper in Guangzhou, southern China.
日本日立公司日前表示,将在中国南部城市广州的一座新摩天大楼里安装“火箭”电梯,电梯最高速度达每小时72公里(45英里)。
The lift, the fastest in the world, would take 43 seconds to go from the first to 95th floor in the Guangzhou CTF Financial Centre, the company said.
该公司表示,这部世界上最快速的电梯将被安装在广州CTF财务中心,只需43秒就可从1层直达95层。

The Guangzhou CTF Financial Centre will house office, hotel and residential space. The skyscraper is scheduled to be completed in 2016.
广州CTF财务中心将集办公、宾馆和住宅等功能于一体,该大楼预计将于2016年完工。
The 111-storey building will have in total 95 lifts, two of which will be operate at the ultra-high speed.
大楼为111层,建成后将有95部电梯,其中只有2部是这样的超高速电梯。

目前中国台湾台北101大厦里的电梯保持着世界最快的记录:最快速度达每小时60.6公里。
Hitachi promised a “comfortable ride” even at high speeds in the new lift. The lifts would prevent ear blockages, Hitachi said, by artificially altering air pressure in the car.
日立公司承诺,即使是如此高速,也将为搭乘此电梯的乘客提供“舒适的体验”。该电梯将通过人为调整升降室里的气压来防止耳阻塞感。
