New Track Is Nearing Completion at EcoTechnoPark

The arsenal of SkyWay transport solutions is constantly growing. Attentive viewers could have already noticed on our videos a new element of the string transport infrastructure - arched supports for the rigid track structure.

Now the erection of pillars for the new route at EcoTechnoPark is coming to an end, which means it’s time to tell briefly about it. “Exhibition sample of string communication systems No. 6” - the way SkyWay developers call this route – is a section of the track infrastructure intended to perform the widest possible range of tasks within the most relevant targeted projects. After all the required tests, it will be used to traffic cargo and passenger samples of rolling stock. Moreover, the new route, as well as a truss string-rail overpass, already operating at EcoTechnoPark, is designed for both mounted and suspended vehicles.

“The sixth number” is suitable for vehicles of up to 50 tons. This track at EcoTechnoPark will be used to check unicont - a cargo vehicle intended for transportation of ISO containers. Other new rolling stock novelties - mounted and suspended passenger and cargo modules for one and two rails - will also be run in on this route. Anatoli Yunitski, General designer of SkyWay developer-company commented on the construction of the sixth line, “Any complex transport equipment, especially rolling stock, cannot be dispatched to the customer (buyer) without testing it. Is it possible to supply our rail electric pods to the Emirates without testing the operation of all their components and assemblies on the track, repeatedly and in different modes: acceleration, braking, nominal speed, drive, suspension, turnouts, U-turns, safety and reliability of the intelligent control system operation, etc.? And while testing, each vehicle must run at least 10 km so that we could give certain guarantees to it. At the same time, it would be costly to build a separate test track for each type of vehicles - mounted, suspended, monorail, double-rail, lightweight (1 ton), heavy (50 tons), single (for 1-2 passengers), train (200-300 passengers and more), etc. Therefore, a multi-purpose string-rail route was designed (the sixth one at EcoTechnoPark), unique in its features, unparalleled in the world, integrating all our transport and logistics standards. It will be possible to use it for testing both a unicont for transportation of 40-foot sea containers weighing up to 35 tons and a train made up of double-rail unibuses with a total capacity of 500 passengers, and a unitruck with a payload of up to 35 tons and a double-seat unibike. And no matter what type our SkyWay vehicles are - mounted or suspended, cargo, passenger or cargo/passenger types. And what kind of cargo they transport - piece, bulk, liquid, special ... “

SkyWay technologies continue to evolve. New solutions that meet the most complex market requirements are developed, tested and applied in the shortest possible time. SkyWay is growing, because it is impossible to achieve success under modern dynamic conditions without constant growth. Thanks to continuous development, we offer popular solutions for the most difficult problems already today. Moreover, we clearly see the prospects and create technologies of the future that will help to cope with the growth in traffic volume and aggravation of transportation problems.

Follow the news of the project, in them we will continue to report about novelties and news of string transport. We will report in more detail about this route and its purpose a little later. Feel free to ask questions on this and other issues on social networks.
