The strengths

of the product

Continuity of ropeway service
through independent tracks

Ropeways with 2 independent hauling rope loops and two independent tracks guarantee a constant link. It is the only system that can guarantee continuity of operation even during maintenance work and remains unparalleled in multi-rope technology!

Advanced
multi-functional line structures

Line video surveillance, lighting for night-time operation, wind speed readings, double wind direction measurement, maintenance video, line loudspeakers; all POMA solutions satisfy these customer expectations and can adapt to regulations the world over. The line structures incorporate these advanced optional multiple features.

Less noise, reduced energy consumption,
Degraded operation

DirectDrive® is a technology that surpasses traditional motor-and-gearbox machinery. With less friction, there is less noise and less energy required for the same level of power. With 4, 6 or 8-drive technology, the DirectDrive® delivers vastly superior availability than a double motor, for a similar investment

Built-in recovery,
peace of mind with ultimate safety

In urban areas, vertical rescues are prohibited. POMA proposes an ultimate safety concept for ropeways, based on a risk and failure analysis, which triggers the systematic recovery of the carrier(s) back to the station with the local authorities’ consent. This system gives peace of mind to operators around the world.

Urban 2S / 3S gondola lift

Multi-cable, tricable or bicable, urban gondola lift are recommended when the installation of towers on the ground is limited, requiring long span 500m to 2km or when traffic requires it.
Since they are very stable in windy conditions and have long spans, a high transportation capacity and a line speed above 8 m/s, this is an ideal solution for urban transport over long distances, to overcome urban or natural obstacles, to blend discreetly into the urban landscape and to ensure a high level of comfort and safety.

The world’s first urban 3S gondola lift is in Toulouse, France, where it was integrated into the metropolitan transport network.
