What is Sky Way?
Click here to unsubscribe from this mailing list.
- Sky Way is a highly competitive alternative and cost-effective transport system incorporating revolutionary technology delivering faster, safer, more sustainable and smoother rail services.
- Sky Way has been developed over the last 37 years. Sky Way’s detailed engineering designs have been subject to bench testing, test sites and cost planning exercises.
- A prototype project has been built in Eastern Europe and will be showcasing the technology to 5,000 dignitaries from around the world on July 1st, 2017
- The game-changer is that a Sky Way transport system can be built for much less than conventional heavy rail systems and light rail infrastructure.
- Sky Way’s revolutionary technology, coupled with its low relative net construction/ operating costs, enhanced safety features and minimal land use impacts promises to redefine the future of rail networks.
- Sky Way operates on overhead rails fixed to concrete or steel supports. The overhead rails are reinforced with high-tension steel wires or built as elevated truss structures. The rails are placed at optimal height between 3 to 100 metres above the ground, with supports at 50 to 100 metre intervals.
- Sky Way’s highly aerodynamic rolling stock is fully automated and offers the most advanced technology in terms of rail safety and propulsion systems.
- In passenger mode, vehicles can be designed to seat between eight and 100 people.
- In freight mode, Sky Way delivers up to 50 million tonnes per year over a distance of up to 10,000 kms.
- Huge potential for the mining industry.
