Material Transport

Material Funiculars

The hybrid installation designed to transport materials and passengers
funiculaire matériaux POMA
Ropeways

for materials and passengers

Material ropeway transport is not limited to aerial systems, but also extends to ground installations.

Material funiculars are systems capable of carrying heavy loads and passengers. These funiculars can provide access to difficult sites, such as hydroelectric power stations on high mountains or the transport of massive blocks of granite or marble extracted from mines and quarries.

The strengths

of the product

Expertise at the service of our solutions slides

Transport of
heavy loads

These funiculars are the optimal solution for transporting heavy loads on steep slopes. They can climb an incline of up to 75°, with a load of 120 tonnes.

Multiple options
for system customisation

This type of installation is designed with interchangeable carriers so as to transport either people only, or materials and equipment only, or even people, materials and equipment simultaneously

Accessing
difficult-to-reach sites

Funiculars are used to provide access to a difficult site during construction, but can also be kept for site operation and maintenance.

Reliable
in all weather

Funiculars are reliable means of transportation, capable of operating in all environmental and weather conditions such as ice, wind and snow.

Option of designing
connections with a corner

 

Funicular carriers can make turns along the line, which would not be possible with a material ropeway.

Technical characteristics

  • Load: < 120 tonnes
  • Movement speed: < 13 m/s
  • Variable incline: < 75°

Cable cranes

The cable crane consists of ropes stretched between two sides of a valley and a trolley carrying a hook capable of moving along the ropes as well as up and down the valley. The hook can be used for transporting equipment (excavator, crane, any other heavy equipment) and/or materials (concrete or precast concrete) on construction sites or even dams, viaducts or quarries.
