Unitsky String Technologies, Inc. has confirmed its participation in World Expo hosted by Dubai from October 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022.
Participation of UST, Inc. in this prestigious international event corresponds to the company’s global positioning and opens up new prospects for it. Here in the United Arab Emirates, in Sharjah, the company has its own testing and certification center, where the UST overhead electric transport system is already operating managed by the artificial intelligence.
Importantly, the UST innovative transport complex is at a short distance from Dubai, and every interested potential customer can come to see the center while visiting Expo.
The center for testing and certification of the UST technology in Sharjah presents the operating rail-string overpass, passenger stations, control center, passenger and cargo rolling stock designed for the tropics. In May, the operation of the 400-meter test section of the overhead transport system was started there.
The Sharjah Center enables Unitsky String Technologies, Inc. to offer a tested integrated product ready for daily operation in the region. At this time, three UST transport solutions designed for the tropics are being certified:
• The passenger overhead transport and infrastructure complex, that provides transportation of about 50,000 people per hour via each overpass at a price starting from $0.02 per passengers-km at speeds of up to 150 km/h on the electric pods of Unicar® with a capacity of 6 persons and Unibus® with a capacity of 25 people.
• The cargo overhead transport system with Unicont® electric pods, that provides transportation of TEU and FEU standard cargo containers at a price starting from $0.01 per tons-km at speeds of up to 120 km/h.
The competitive advantage of the company’s solution means the possibility to carry out loading-unloading operations in ports and logistics hubs «on the fly» without need in additional terminals.
• High-speed overhead passenger transport system operating at speeds of up to 500 km/h with the special six-seater electric pods of Unilet™. The pod engineering specifics and location of the high-speed route at the overhead level allow to gain such speed while providing comfort for passengers and economical expediency for the customer.
It is worth to note that the company communicates with the UAE state bodies responsible for transport infrastructure. For example, in February 2019, within the framework of the World Government Summit in Dubai, the company signed a memorandum of understanding with the Dubai Road and Transport Authority (RTA).
During the summit, the company’s latest developments caused a sensation. Traditionally, the Arab Emirates support innovative transport designs capable of providing the country with the world-class infrastructure.
"Now we are actively developing the MENA region where there is a high demand for our innovative technology. Participation in such a large exhibition of the international level, while having our own operating transport complex in the UAE, where we can demonstrate our achievements, will undoubtedly consolidate our worldwide success.”, — Nadezhda Kosareva (СЕО, Unitsky String Technologies, Inc.).
