Explanation:
Un «lift-trappe» est un ascenseur qui, dans le cas présent, assure la liaison entre les caves et la cour intérieure du Château sans qu’un aménagement fixe soit nécessaire dans ladite cour puisque l’ascenseur y émerge par une trappe, aménagée à la hauteur du sol, qui se referme lorsque la cabine descend. La trappe est entourée de barrières de sécurité.

"Triplex" is about how the lifts work (management, sequencing of stops at floors, etc.). From my notes:
Manoeuvre sélective collective duplex Interconnected directional-collective operation (lifts) (independent of number of lifts in a bank: in French, the nature of the operation of a bank of lifts is understood, and only the number of lifts in the bank is specified (duplex, triplex/triplette, quadruplex, etc.). Otherwise: duplex selective-collective operation (more common). "Full collective" if collective for both up and down journeys, as opposed to "down collective" [Hall,II,119].

I suspect "local" is also about how the lifts work, possibly a simple control system (push a button and the lift comes straight to you, for example, rather than stopping at other floors first).

So maybe it's "modernization 2 asc (logts+trappe) local triplex en 2000" for "modernization of two lifts (apartments and trapdoor lift (to wherever) using local triplex control, in 2000", if it's not "modernization 2 asc (logts+trappe local) triplex en 2000" for "modernization of two lifts (apartments and trapdoor lift to lift machinery room) using triplex control, in 2000".

More likely the second option, I imagine. The machine room will be empty (of people) when technicians need to access it, so it could well be a trapdoor lift coming up into the floor of that room.

Good luck. Lifts are a pain. I hope to be able to tell you more in a month's time, when I hope to have finished the 30,000-word lift job – Everything you ever wanted to know about lifts but were afraid to ask - I've just received!
