The SkyWay and Belarusian journalists: it is better already
Relations between the SkyWay project and some of the Belarusian media did not work out right from the start. Very sceptical, and sometimes frankly negative articles come out with a certain periodicity, but for some time now such publications have a little influence on the reputation of the string transport - SkyWay proves its worth by deed. Nevertheless, skipping criticism is not in the tradition of the developers of the string transport, so we invite our readers to read the article about the EcoFest, which has recently appeared on the Belarusian news portal Tut.by.
In general, the article was unexpectedly positive - the journalist did not go into unjustified and was not supported by the facts of reflection, but rather described the festival itself, with its numerous international guests, a demonstration of the rolling stock and a positive attitude. Of course, for clarification of some technical issues, it would be worthwhile to turn to the numerous employees of the company who answered all visitors' questions: for example, the 150 km per hour string transport is not dispersed because the test site is too short for this.
However, the free pass for EcoFest-2019 Tut.by has not yet worked out: our subscribers are receiving the information that the moderators of the portal actively delete positive comments about SkyWay. What for? Not very clear.
But whatever the comments of strangers are, for us the most important thing is positive emotions and confidence in the success of our partners. Thousands of photos of happy guests of EcoFest-2018 in social networks - this is the best proof that the festival was successful.
EcoFest is a large-scale event devoted to the technology of string transport. This year it was followed by about 45 thousand people - 5 thousand guests visited EkoTehnoPark personally, more than 40 thousand watched the event online. Nearly 5 thousand spectators watched the live broadcast. On the territory of the demonstration-testing ground of CJSC "String Technologies," there are operating samples of vehicles, various types of string infrastructure and other technological innovations related to the development of SkyWay string transport.
The main task of EcoFest is to demonstrate the possibilities of a harmonious neighbourhood of technology and nature. SkyWay String Transport is created as part of an innovative approach to passenger and freight traffic, based on the economy, environmental friendliness and high efficiency. The use of proven technologies in combination with innovative developments provides SkyWay string transport with a high level of safety and energy efficiency. At the same time, the construction of the strings remains affordable due to the low material consumption and lightness of the structure.
