The international exhibition Expo 2020, designed to show achievements of countries and nations, opened today in Dubai, UAE after being delayed for a year. Unitsky String Technologies doesn’t stay away and presents there an innovative achievement of modern humanity — absolutely ecofriendly string transport which can substitute existing transport solutions, hazardous for people and ecology.
Expo 2020 is the first world-wide business event available to visitors from various countries after the pandemic situation. As it was expected, it’ll help to stimulate the world's investment and trade. Now the exhibition hosts exponents from about 200 countries and about 5 million tourists and business attendants can visit it.
Usually Expo takes place every 5 years but it was postponed for one year because of coronavirus. The last event was held in 2015 in Milan, Italy. This time the exhibition is arranged under the motto "Connecting Minds and Creating the Future". It means Expo should be not only a place of inventiveness, but also a playground where global issues such as climate change and economic recovery can be faced together.
Because of the pandemic lots of people would not be able to attend it, so the events will be streamed online. The organizers also demand visitors to wear masks, have a negative coronavirus test or be vaccinated.
"We are quite confident that by being responsible in how we manage the situation with covid but also in how we put forward an exciting program for visitors, we will hopefully be able to thread the needle by opening up but remaining at the same time conservative and keep public safety first and foremost," Reem Al Hashimy, Expo 2020 Dubai's Director said.
Expo 2020 will last for 6 months — from October 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022.
Unitsky String Technologies Inc. presents
Unitsky String Technologies Inc. presents at Expo 2020 the transport of future — electric transport overpass systems. Providing significantly lower material capacity and construction costs than conventional overpass structures, the company proposes higher performance comparable to metro, rail or even road transport.
Compared to cable ways, these systems are much more adaptive, several times faster and can carry many more passengers and cargoes. The transportation is carried out by unmanned unimobiles (a type of electric vehicle) with various load and passenger capacity.
Due to a fully automated intelligent control system and arrangement above the ground where the vehicle is free to move, it is possible to solve the problems of traffic jams while providing safety level as never before. The vehicles’ aerodynamics reduces energy consumption and operating costs.
They are particularly successful in mountainous areas, in areas with harsh terrain, where overcoming of water barriers is needed, and in areas where the existing road infrastructure cannot meet the current demands.
It is worth to note that during the construction of the complexes by Unitsky String Technologies Inc. the ground under the roads can remain undamaged.
Business representatives, authorities and transport specialists will be able to learn more about the technology and even test the transport at the company’s demonstration and certification center uSky, located in the American University of Sharjah — in a short distance from Dubai.
