ADVANTAGES OF THE HIGH SPEED MONORAIL (MGV*)
ECOLOGICAL, COMPATIBLE, INTEGRATING, COMFORTABLE, HIGH CAPACITY, EFFICIENT, RELIABLE, DEPENDABLE, ADVANTAGEOUS.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY OPERATION The electrical energy used by the MGV* comes from hydroelectric dams, windmills and solar panels which are recognized as some of the cleanest forms of energy on Earth. The electrification of public transport would eliminate the use of fossil fuel, such as oil and coal, and the mining of uranium for nuclear plants, all of which are hazardous to the environment. REDUCTION OF GREENHOUSE GASES (GHG) The use of the MGV will substantially lower traffic congestion on roads and highways therefore contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gases. SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT Few such considerable projects have a negligible impact on the environment as the MGV. No bridges or tunnels, no land expropriation which could otherwise be use for agriculture or for the preservation of natural habitats, no substantial landscaping or right-of-way for railways are needed. The infrastructure required for the MGV consists in the construction of concrete foundations spaced at approximately 50 meters apart to support pylons and rail: The necessary land area is 205 times less than what is needed for a TGV and 460 times less than what is required for a motorway. TRAFFIC REDUCTION ON ROADS AND HIGHWAYS The utilization of the MGV will contribute to the reduction of traffic on roads and highways. This in turn will lead to lower road maintenance and minimize the need for new road construction or expansion. EFFICIENT, DEPENDABLE AND COMFORTABLE The in-wheel motor brings efficiency - a 95% optimization rate to electrical input - and simplicity into any type of vehicle which goes far beyond the conventional drive shaft electric motor. The in-wheel motor can provide acceleration which is comparable to that of airplanes (0-250 km/k in 30 seconds) and also allows for quick deceleration: This makes it possible for frequent stops in city clusters. ADAPTED TO COLD CLIMATES The overhead rail is covered by a protection dome in its entire length which prevents the buildup of snow and freezing rain onto the rail itself. This dependable system will not be affected by disturbances caused by bad road conditions or winter storms. The structure does not require snow removal and needs minimal maintenance. *fr(Monorail a Grande Vitesse, MGV)
