A proposal was submitted to the Provincial authorities of Groningen and Friesland (the Netherlands) for the construction of a 58 km line connecting the cities of Groningen and Heerenveen. The favourable investment and commercial operation this would involve have attracted political interest.

March 2012
Qatar has requested the provision of a system for passenger transport in connection with the Football World Cup in 2018.

OMFL (Ontwikkelingsmaatschappij Flevoland) is interested in constructing an OTS system to link Lelystad Airport to the city of Lelystad, possibly with an onward connection to Almere and Amsterdam.

Abu Dhabi contacted OTS about a combination of passenger transport and freight containers. The transport system would be constructed across several islands and lakes, eliminating the need for large buildings.

August 2011
We were awarded a contract to construct an OTS above 4 pipes, each 15 m in diameter and 75 km long, in Jakarta, Indonesia. These connections will be combined with the existing, very outdated drains and sewers.

July 2011
Australian train builders are interested in the construction of 450 km suspended rail system to make it easier to cross water barriers and desert regions. Offer and information are under consideration of interested parties.

Key Features

The OTS Design consists of an elevated, small train track tunnel supported by columns and arches. Electrically powered bogies travel through the tunnel with passenger-carrying cabins or containers hanging beneath, connected to the bogies through slot openings.

The maximum weight of one entire moving element is 16 tons resulting in a relatively light-weight, yet solid and robust construction. The train track tunnel is supported by columns at an intermittent distance of 60 meters.

Passengers travel in comfortable 40 passenger cabins connected to the bogies, typically between 4 to 8 meters above ground level to allow for uninterrupted road crossing under the train track.

The bogies are powered individually through electrically driven engines built inside the bogie wheels. Current design allows for a maximum travel speed of up to 200 kph.

Departure frequency per cabin can be as high as 2 per minute, resulting in a maximum passenger capacity of 4800 people per hour.
