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 These connections will be combined with the existing, very outdated drains and sewers.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

Track Design

The bogie tunnel is supported by a construction of steel bows which are mounted on rigid concrete platforms. The distance between the supporting columns is 60 meters. If larger crossover distances are required, alternate carrying systems can be selected similar to crossover bows used in larger bridges.

In order to allow for necessary clearance, the bottom of the carrying construction is positioned at 8.0 meters above ground level. The height can be easily adapted to different surface conditions for instance to facilitate crossing of waterways or obstacles where little clearance is required.

Separate track sidelines at stations keep the mainline available for high-speed through travel, if needed. Platforms can be kept short and cost effective due to the high frequency of arriving and departing passenger cabins.
