Unitsky String Technologies successfully completes the construction of an elevated transport complex in the UAE

United Arab Emirates — On November 26, 2020, the company completed an innovative transport complex at the Research, Technology and Innovation Park (SRTIP) in the Emirate of Sharjah.

This overpass is part of a more extensive elevated transport system. Unitsky String Technologies has been designing, building and maintaining this system in the MENA region for over a year.

The Belarusian company’s elevated transport solution created has several key technical and commercial advantages that allow the region to ensure the cargo flow of standard ISO containers in the amount of up to 5 million tons per year on each overpass at the cost of $0.01 t/km. For passenger services, the transport solution provides transportation of passenger traffic of 50 thousand people per hour on each overpass at the cost of $0.5 per passenger.

"This is our first project in the United Arab Emirates, where our customer is the Sharjah Department of Town Planning and Survey. For the UAE, which is the technological and innovative Mecca of the Middle East, this is a great opportunity to try out our solution in practice. And for our company, which already has an operational system in the CIS region, it is necessary to adapt it to the climatic and landscape features of the MENA region," says Nadezhda Kosareva, CEO, Unitsky String Technologies, Inc.

The company's innovation consists of track structures and an automatic control system based on artificial intelligence. The company's complex of engineering solutions allows reducing the cost of construction and operation of the transport system by more than a third compared to a conventional monorail, twice – compared to a railway, and five times – compared to a highway.

The unique benefits of the transport system developed by Unitsky String Technologies make it possible to use advanced achievements in electric, high-speed, eco-friendly transport and transportation comprehensively.

In addition to commercial advantages, the company's multi-level engineering solutions in the MENA region focus on three crucial challenges in this industrial sector:

  1. They allow increasing cargo and passenger flows in existing cities without interfering with localities' available infrastructure.
  2. They allow to link and optimize cargo traffic between hard-to-reach mining fields, industrial centers and remote transport hubs (ports, airports and logistics centers) without building additional terminals.
  3. The company's solution provides an environmentally friendly transport connection with zero pollution and minimal noise for regions with high environmental requirements. The industrial impact on the environment is prohibited or restricted.
