Two suspended rail production facilities ( Chengdu & Qingdao )? I think maglev train productions have two as well.

That's the driverless version above. It's designed to run through level 9 crosswinds (75–88 km/h). An article about it ... http://www.cna.com.tw/news/acn/201707180379-1.aspx .

China's railcar maker rolls out prototype monorail train

QINGDAO, July 21 (Xinhua) -- Railcar maker CRRC Qingdao Sifang said Friday that it had produced a prototype mounted monorail train with a maximum operational speed of 70 km per hour, the fastest of its kind in China.

Driven by a permanent magnet motor, the experimental train runs along an overhead monorail.

Liu Yuwen, deputy head of the company's technology center, said that the train can be composed of three or five train cars, with a passenger transport capacity of 300 and 510 people, respectively.

The train has a strong climbing ability with a maximum inclining in an altitude up to 100 meters over a length of 1,000 meters.

Liu said the mounted monorail system is suitable for passenger transport in scenery areas, mountainous regions and urban areas where road traffic is heavy.

The company based in Qingdao City, Shandong Province, east China, is undertaking China's first overhead monorail project in Hancheng City, northwest Shaanxi Province. The construction of the line designed to stretch 55 km began in November last year.

The line running in south-north direction through the city links with the city's airport, and threads through a number of scenic and historical sites along the city.

Chongqing China has the best monorail system in the world IMHO! I love the 8 car monorail trains. The frequency of the Metro Line 3 is very high in the downtown core!

BYD powers into monorail business


Carmaker is confident of earning 30 billion yuan in revenue from the new sector next year

BYD, China's biggest electric carmaker, launched its first commercial monorail train service in Yinchuan, capital of the Ningxia Hui autonomous region, on Friday.

Its SkyRail is also China's first straddle-type monorail system. BYD has intellectual property rights to its design and other aspects.

The SkyRail system has seven rakes that will ply on the 5.67-km, eight-station route.

Yinchuan plans to build a monorail network spanning 300 km in all in the future.

SkyRail's seven trains have three cars each. Each car can carry around 170 passengers at a speed of up to 80 kilometers per hour.

SkyRail construction started in April and was completed in only about four months at a total cost of about 600 million yuan ($91 million).

Wang Chuanfu, BYD chairman and president, said: "Mass transit systems are an indispensable solution to alleviate traffic congestion in cities. The launch of SkyRail demonstrates how BYD's innovative products can help alleviate traffic congestion in urban areas all over the world."

The carmaker has spent about five years and 5 billion yuan to develop the new system.

It tried out the first monorail system in October at its headquarters in Shenzhen. It plans to begin construction of more SkyRail lines in 20 cities across China next year.

Earlier this week, the company said it would build its first overseas monorail line in the city of Iloilo in the Philippines. That line is scheduled to begin operations in 2019.

Wang De'an, an analyst at Ping An Securities, said BYD will earn 5 to 6 billion yuan in monorail revenue this year and 30 billion yuan next year.

He said diversification into rail transport would open up new business opportunities for BYD and drive the company's development in the future.

According to the company's interim financial results, its net profit declined 23.8 percent year-on-year to 1.72 billion yuan in the first six months of this year.

Monorail is now among BYD's four key business sectors for the first time. Others are cars, mobile phone components and batteries.

Post-results, BYD's stock fell in both Shenzhen and Hong Kong. But after Friday's monorail launch, the shares appeared set to reverse the downtrend, closing a tad up in Hong Kong.
