EVENTS
May 2012
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.

December 2011
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.

October 2011
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 These connections will be combined with the existing, very outdated drains and sewers.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.

Design, Techology & Construction

Safety

The elevated position of the train track prevents people or animals from coming into contact with the track. There are no level crossings and the risk of vandalism or sabotage is limited. Due to the shielded design of the rail track, weather conditions will not impair train operations. Additionally, the track is provided with computer controlled surveillance and security monitoring systems.

The cabins move one-way only per track with at least 1800 meters intermittent distance. After passing of a cabin, 1800 meters of the track behind the cabin is made power free, to ensure cabins can never collide. The breaking system provides enough deceleration capacity to ensure bogie plus cabin can come to a complete standstill from maximum speed in 900 meters.

Emergency batteries allow for low-speed recovery of cabins to the nearest station in case of a power outage. Each cabin is equipped with escape systems (comparable to airplane escape slides) that can be operated in case of an emergency.
