The 3S detachable grip aerial ropeway : technology serving comfort and safety
Comprised of three ropes (2 track ropes and 1 haul rope), this 3S detachable grip ropeway combines the advantages of a gondola to those of the ropeway. It provides very high transport capacities and makes even the longest spans and the highest flyovers look as easy as one, two,three.
Equipped with large panoramic cabins, it remains stable even in incredibly high winds and provides a very comfortable ride. The wide doors make it fast and easy to board and leave the cabin whether your passengers are walking, rolling or running!
The 3S ropeway has benefited from several innovative systems such as carriers that come to a full stop in the station and integrated evacuation systems. If operation stops, this evacuation device brings the carriers into the station, without taking the passengers out of the cabins. This totally prevents vertical evacuation along the line.
This is mass transportation. The 3S detachable aerial ropeway provides the guarantee for optimal performance and maximum comfort.
The "ProdainsExpress", an iconic project
POMA designed and installed the "Prodains Express" ropeway—the new urban detachable grip tramway connecting Morzine and Avoriaz—by replacing the old Prodains ropeway.
