From 8 to 11 September 2015 design enterprise "SkyWay Technologies Co.", which is a part of the SkyWay group of companies, was visited by a delegation of partners from Australia headed by Rod Hook, a former head of the Department of Transport, Planning and Infrastructure of South Australia and the head of the consulting company Rod Hook and Associates (RHA).
Rod Hook is one of the reputable Australian state and public figures, an expert, who directly managed the implementation of major transport and infrastructure projects. Mr. Hook was responsible for supervising the performance of the annual operating budget amounting approximately to USD 1.4 billion and the implementation, in the past ten years, of projects under the program of capital investments in transport and infrastructure totaling more than USD 10 billion.
In the framework of the official visit Australian experts met with the staff of 15 design Bureaus of the "SkyWay Technologies Co." and discussed the work of key departments of the company. The guests also visited the SkyWay EcoTechnoPark in Mariyna Gorka and were acquainted with the process of building a future demonstration test site of the SkyWay transport system.
In his interview to the representatives of the Belarusian mass media Rod hook said that he was greatly impressed by what he saw in Belarus, by the real scale of the SkyWay project, professional work of company’s employees, the degree and depth of engineering study of all elements of the innovative technology: overpasses, rolling stock, infrastructure, and intelligent automated system of safety, control, and communications.
In particular, the Australian guests were shown in action the intelligent control system, equipped with machine vision (ability to see a matchbox on the rail at a distance of 500 m) and the machine sense of touch (vibration acoustic analyzers, capable of detecting a defect in any element of the unibus and string rail). This know-how was not revealed, only the functionality of the complex was shown.
Rod Hook admitted that in all his life he never met such a competent and talented team, as Anatoly Yunitskiy has, and added: "In Australia, such professionals has never been and are not available now." The guests noted that Australia today really needs SkyWay transport and infrastructure complexes. And the first project implemented in Australia can be a high-speed route Melbourne − Sydney − Brisbane, the economic effect from the operation of which will be about USD 2.5 billion per year, or USD 125 billion within 50 years of operation.
Mr. Hook is a recognized expert in the field of infrastructure and transport from the Australian government. In his interview, he said: "SkyWay technologies Co." and engineer Anatoly Yunitskiy passed our expert examination, therefore people are waiting for SkyWay in Australia". Rod named more than a dozen targeted projects that may be implemented in Australia by SkyWay technologies.
The outcome of the meeting in Minsk was the signing of the agreement of intent and a detailed discussion of implementing the stages of the SkyWay project in Australia. The partnership of the SkyWay group of companies with Rod Hook and Associates (RHA) may provide an impetus for the speedy implementation of the SkyWay project in the world at large.
