TÜV SW Standardization Certifications begins the two-stage certification of the fourth 2.4-km test track of uSky Transport & Infrastructure Technology. The track is designed for the movement of heavyweight and passenger rolling stock weighing up to 60 tons (including shipping containers) and speeds of up to 150 km/h.
The certification agreement with TÜV SW Standardization Certificates was signed by the founder and General Designer of uSky Transport Anatoli Unitsky. The work will be carried out in two stages. At the first stage, the certifying authority will check the intermediate supports that have already been built, and at the second stage, there will be carried out the third-party inspection and issuance of a certificate for the entire fourth test track, including:
- Anchor Station 4.1 — Cargo & Passenger Station;
- Anchor Station 4.2 — Cargo & Passenger Terminal;
- Intermediate Supports;
- Semi-rigid track structure.
The certification results will contribute to the further successful development of the company and the implementation of cargo and passenger transport projects around the world.
As a reminder: last year, TÜV SW Standardization Certifications already certified uSky Transport & Infrastructure Technology at the uSky Testing and Certification Centre. The certification of the first 400-metre track has confirmed its compliance with the strictest safety standards.
The certified transport and infrastructure complex included:
- track structure (prestressed rail-string transport flyover);
- uPod (steel wheel electric vehicle with automated control system);
- anchor supports (combined with stations);
- intermediate supports;
- passenger station;
- service station (including control room and workshop).
Based on the certificate of conformity, uSky Transport has received permission from the local authorities to put it into trial operation.
