Intamin Monorail for Xi`an
Three new Monorail trains of the type P8 with the latest state of the art technology have left the production line of Intamin and are on the way to the City of Xi’an in China.
Xi'an is the capital of the Shaanxi province, and a sub-provincialcity in the People's Republic of China. One of the oldest cities in China, with more than 3,100 years of history, the city is known for the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China, having held the position under several of the most important dynasties in Chinese history. Xi'an is the eastern terminus of the Silk Road and home to the Terracotta Army.
Since the 1990s, as part of the economic revival of interior China especially for the central and northwest regions, the city of Xi'an has re-emerged as an important cultural, industrial and educational center of the central-northwest region, with facilities for research and development, national security and China's space exploration program. It's now one of the most populous metropolitan areas in inland China with more than 8 million inhabitants.
A monorail system with a total track length of approximately 9.6km will provide transport within the Qujiang district at Xi’an. Initially, three trains P8/48 with a maximum capacity of 48 seated passengers each will serve altogether eleven stations.
The Intamin monorail type P8 is a modern and attractive system for transportation and sightseeing in cities and tourist centres. Each passenger has a seat, and can therefore enjoy the ride at a high comfort level.
