Sep. 24, 2014 — At 12:00 on the opening day of InnoTrans 2014, many visitors attended the opening ceremony of BT’s new monorail presided by Pierre Attendu (includes video presentation of the monorail)

One of the highlights of InnoTrans 2014 in Berlin is BT’s presentation of its new monorail product, the INNOVIA Monorail 300, which marks the first time that a monorail has been exhibited in the history of the fair.

Pierre Attendu and BT witnessed hundreds of onlookers and attendees, including media and press agencies along with new INNOVIA Monorail 300 customers, gather around for his opening speech to officially introduce the monorail to the public at 12:00 on Tuesday.

Customers who have placed orders for the monorail include the King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD) in Riyadh, Saudia Arabia, as well as the city of São Paulo in Brazil. The INNOVIA Monorail 300 on display at InnoTrans, a product for the KAFD, is set to continue on to Riyadh after the fair. Attendu stressed the importance of the monorail as a game-changer for urban transport, which is an attractive factor for such rapidly-growing cities as Riyadh and São Paulo.

The INNOVIA Monorail 300 system is a turnkey transit solution which is fast and cost-efficient to build and maintain, requiring minimal space while still having a sleek design which quietly fits into an urban background. More importantly, the INNOVIA Monorail 300 is a completely driverless system and is the first monorail system in the world that can provide the capacity for delivering mass transit. On top of these points, the INNOVIA Monorail 300 is complemented and supported by some of BT’s most innovative systems and technologies, including CITYFLO 650, communications-based train control system, and the new Permanent Magnet Motor.
