EMTS (Electric Monorail Transport System)

The EMTS (Electric Monorail Transport System) has particularly been designed for the underground transport of men and material in non-explosive atmospheres. With a load carrying capacity of 30 tons and the ability to drive systems gradients of more than 30 degrees the EMTS can make transport in inclined gateroads considerably more efficient.


  • Self-propelled monorail with integrated electrical hoisting devices
  • High torque electrical devices
  • Frequency converter technology including energy recovery
  • 4 drive units with total pulling force 80 kN
  • Load monitoring and control system
  • Driver cabin with on board diagnostic and multifunction joystick
  • Trap-guided trolleys with fail-safe brake system


  • Flexible transport of equipment, material and men
  • Zero-emission transport technology continuous to go from 0-30 degrees incline
  • Smooth and efficient speed control for safe and comfortable operation
  • High speed (up to 3.5 m/s) and powerful transport of heavy loads (up to 30 tons)
  • Short instruction time, simple operation and high availability
  • Safe operation, certified according to international standards
