An exceptional experience

Touristic 2S / 3S gondola lift

“For touristic sites with technical challenging access, with towers spaced of over 1 km apart, or a demanding passenger capacity, detachable multi-cable gondola lift technology is the go-to solution.
A popular tourist attraction for the general public, multi-cable gondola lift (2S, 3S) have the advantage of allowing large numbers of people to reach or pass over exceptional sites, sometimes giving new impetus to places where visitors are restricted due to the time and effort involved in getting there. Passengers ride comfortably in exceptional carriers for an unforgettable experience with spectacular views.”

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.

Siemens Safety Integrated inside:
the best safety PLC in your POMA system

POMA uses the best technologies for its systems; The SIEMENS safety PLC combines performance with worldwide component availability. This SIEMENS solution includes many diagnostic functions to detect any possible internal failure of the hardware or firmware, so that a failure of the PLC does not cause any “hazardous” situations.

Urban Gondola Lift

Ropeway passengers transportation systems in cities require more than just reliability. POMA offers a high-performance modular design solution that can be integrated to a global transport network with its constraints using angle stations and rope loops of different lengths, while remaining 100% synchronised for optimal continuity of service.
Experience in urban gondola lifts is embedded in POMA’s DNA with installations that have already accumulated over 100,000 operating hours, operated by POMA group teams or teams trained by our professional experts.
The different configurations of the urban gondola lift satisfy the requirements of locations in the heart of cities. They blend into the skyline and require little ground space. They include energy options that promote sustainable mobility with reduced noise emissions and provide services for passengers. The design of the stations and cabins takes all the public’s expectations into account and its urban type operating system, for intensive use all year round, includes additional solutions for comfort, lighting and safety (surveillance cameras, communication functions, etc.) in order to operate at night and rise to all the challenges of a highly efficient connected transport system.

Roller batteries designed for intensive use,
with specially adapted maintenance

LCI roller batteries are designed for 30 years in operation, with appropriate maintenance for intensive use. R&D has reduced the pressure on the rings, thus further extending the life of the roller battery pins. The maintenance plan is therefore lighter and enables the pins to be reused for 30 years of service.

Overhead and underground
communication lines

Very long spans of communication lines can be problematic in operation. POMA recommends underground solutions whenever possible, but we have developed communication solutions for when the terrain is unsuitable, using carrying ropes for spans of over 600 m.

The line structures incorporate these advanced optional multiple features.

Safely postpone work
on the safety line

Availability is a major factor that is built into all POMA systems. The double safety line makes it possible to fix any line wiring failure within a fraction of a second, by continuing operation with the second safety line.

Easy access
to training

Based on an experience built up in partnership with its customers, POMA’s operation sites and the union of French operators, POMA has developed a set of educational and specialised resources, such as e-learning lessons, targeted assessments, and immersive 3D tools that are unique in the world, available on the exclusive UPILOT® online platform. With UPILOT®, teams can acquire, certify and maintain all the skills necessary to ensure the safety and availability of the ropeway system in record time without any downtime.

The safety of your line technicians
during maintenance

The PROTEC remote control allows you to drive the installation from the maintenance platform during the maintenance phase. This high-performance system has been up and running at many operating sites for several years. It ensures top-notch safety, while respecting the most demanding regulations in the world.

Load simulation
to simplify maintenance

The load simulation system comes as standard with POMA. The need to actually load the ropeway to perform a dynamic test is now a thing of the past. All of our ropeways are equipped with a load simulation function which can check correct performance, after working on the brakes in particular. It saves time and reduces risks for technicians, and so ensures effective maintenance.

Interior design specific

to urban transport

Efficiency and robustness coupled with aesthetic design and comfort; all of our interiors are customisable.

Switch your safety line
to automatic mode to ensure availability

The double safety line ensures continuity of operation. If a false positive is detected, safety line 1 automatically switches to Monitoring 2 within a fraction of a second, without slowing or stopping the line as is the case when manually switched. Technicians can intervene without disrupting the transport network, and system availability is not affected.

An ultra-compact solution for
a station requiring very little space

POMA offers solutions for ultra-compact stations. It is possible to configure a 10-seater gondola lift for small spaces (under 20 m in length) or for a narrow layout. Our compact solutions make it possible for 10- and 12-seater cabins to travel through minimal spaces, at a speed of 4 to 6 m/s.

Inductive line safety with
the Cable Positioning System

The Cable Positioning System (CPS) technology is capable of providing information about the position of the rope, detecting the initiation of a movement in a fraction of a second, even before the movement takes place. Coupled in a double line with conventional technology, the CPS is an indispensable tool for peace of mind on higher-risk installations. In addition to its rope-location function, it has enabled POMA to develop the latest generation of roller batteries that require no greasing, such as the LP20 EVO.

Undersides,

for seamless integration of stations into buildings

POMA has solutions to facilitate the integration of a station in a building and seal off its mechanics. The wood and honeycomb undersides provide simple interfaces for architects. They are then able to give expression to all the design and visual potential of the installation, in harmony with its environment.

This detachable surface lift can be adapated and installed as close as possible to the shape of the ski slopes, thanks to its possibility of having angles in line. It is also popular for avoiding to have towhangers runing empty on line, which is really usefull out of operation with a empty line cable for snow grooming or wind case. The system has become a ski-area essential. There are thousands of POMA installations all over the world, especially in North America where it is still called the “POMALIFT”. It has also been installed in indoor ski domes over the past few years.
