Double backup, peace of mind
with a complementary safety system
Each system is equipped with a standard solution including a main hydraulic motor and a backup. POMA’s “double backup” device offers an additional solution for bringing a carrier back to the station, and total peace of mind.
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!
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.
Built-in recovery, peace of mind
with ultimate safety
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.
