With the growing population and economy, the dependence on high speed mobility is increasing. Existing fast modes of transport like air transport are not able to meet the growing requirements and possess its own challenges of being expensive, Capital intensive and high land space requirements. In such a scenario, there is a need of a mobility system that is effecient, faster and economical.
Fairwood possesses a Magnetic Levitation (Maglev) High speed mobility technology making high speed transportation possible via rail routes. Maglev is more quiet & smoother and requires less maintenance compared to wheeled mass transit systems.
Maglev offers numerous advantages over conventional mass transit systems.
Faster – The non-contact levitation and propulsion technology enables Transrapid to travel extremely fast. With operating speeds of up to 500 km/h (310 mph), and be able to match journey times previously possible only by air
Low Maintenance – Due to the non-contact technology, the cost of vehicle and guideway maintenance is very low
Safer – The Maglev systems are safe against derailment as the guidance rail is embedded at the bottom of the train, Permanent Guideway Inspection regarding Geometry Deviations and also there is no possibility for a collision
Less Energy – Lower energy consumption
