On November 26, 2020, the company has completed the construction of 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 now.
The elevated transport solution created by the Belarusian company has a number of 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 from $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 $0.1 pass·km.
"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 in the design features 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 the field of electric, high-speed, eco-friendly transport and transportation in a comprehensive manner.
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. First, they allow increasing cargo and passenger flows in existing cities without interfering with the available infrastructure of localities. Second, 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. And third, the company's solution provides an environmentally friendly transport connection with zero pollution and minimal noise for regions with high environmental requirements, where industrial impact on the environment is prohibited or restricted.
Unitsky String Technologies, Inc. is an international engineering and transportation technology company that provides full-cycled innovative overpass transport solutions. The innovation of the company is the Prestressed Track Structure technology that allows to utilize elevated mono/bi-rail solutions with greater commercial and ecological efficiency than classic road/rail-based transport solutions.
The company's head office is located in Minsk, Belarus.
The company has its own R&D-centers, manufacturing facilities and two test sites: Maryina Gorka, Belarus and Sharjah, UAE.
