We have obtained certificates confirming technical features of SkyWay transport rolling stock and its components. Certificates were issued for unibus model U4-210 and unibike model U4-621. To date, SkyWay transport is not defined as a separate mode of transport de jure, though it is such de facto, therefore certification was conducted for compliance with the requirements of normative documents to certification rules of an urban electric vehicle, its spare parts and equipment elements.
The Certificates were issued by LLC “Scientific-technical center of Scientific Research Institute Gorelectrotransport” having a corresponding accreditation at the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation. Each certificate confirms the compliance with the normative requirements for complete sets of rolling stock equipment including: traction drive, control system, energy storage unit, microclimate system, fire extinguishing system, frame of traction module in assembly with chassis, passenger module.
As a reminder, in February 2016, the Expert Council under the Ministry of transport of the Russian Federation acknowledged SkyWay string technology as innovative. For the further successful development and implementation, SkyWay transport gets support of the best representatives from the transport community. Thus, in December 2017, Skyway Technologies Co. signed an agreement on comprehensive cooperation with “The Russian State University of Transport (MIIT)”. Following this, we have received a positive conclusive opinion of this University to the completed report “Preliminary evaluation of the prospects for development and use of innovative string-rail transport of “SkyWay” overpass type.
