Nice to meet you, Asit, tell us about yourself and what you do?
I am Asit Roy and my origin is the wonderful country of India. Currently I am working on MBA after completion of Mechanical engineering. Presently, I am looking at project execution part of the job as a Project Engineer.
Tell us, how long have you been in this profession and what your previous work experience had been?
I started my profession career long time ago in 2001. About 22 years of wonderful working experience with some big and challenging project in India and UAE. Some of my big projects in India are Kochi metro, Indian railway – Dhamrah rail link, Mumbai International Airport Terminal 2 and Mumbai monorail and in UAE, Dubai mall bridge (TDMZE), and Etihad rails apart from project execution work I have experience with project estimation, budgeting, cost control, risk assessment and project cost analysis.
Tell us what is project engineer from your point of view and what does he do?
Currently, I am doing project execution work with strategic management to ensure project quality, safety and completion of the project on time with coordination, with design and project team. Carrying out project review meetings with the consultant and contractors to ensure implementation of uSky work methodology and technology.
Tell us about your work at uSky Transport. What are your tasks and how is your day laid out?
Dr. Anatoli Unitsky innovated sustainability and futuristic transportation technology which is great solution to minimize traffic and transport the goods faster, safer and work the way throughout the world.
Eventually, I started my journey with uSky team in 2019 and successfully completed Phase #1 which is operating now. Meanwhile, continued the precision Track #2 and Track #4 which include Station, Intermediate supports and track structure. During construction we maintained high level of quality and safety which complied with international safety and quality standards.
What are your achievements during your time with uSky Transport
The biggest challenge was to bring new technology to life and to set up successfully completed Phase #1. On other hand, construction of Track #4 is at completed stage and final testing is in progress. I am sharing here one challenging task: forming the track rail head with about 2.1 km long and with time restriction of 72 hours without any interruption because there is time required for the glue to settle down. However, we have successfully completed this task with the time limit. This is greatest team work which helps to achieve the Goal.
What motivates your work?
My main motivation here is, firstly, uSky technology and work methodology. In general, such kind of structure is built by steel frame or concrete girder but uSky tech is special one which is different from other conventional projects. For example, the current test track length is 2.1 km and there are 8 intermediate supports which are connected by single strand made of multiple high strength wires to carry entire uBus including passengers with designed speed from one terminal to the other end or other terminals.
How do you see uSky Transport & Infrastructure Technology developing in future?
As per my opinion and market forecasts, uSky is offering every nation potentially low project costs, low transportation costs with green and sustainable technology which could be gamechanger for transportation system throughout the humankind.
What would you wish to our company?
I wish to uSky Transport to build such kind of new innovation for many nations and the world.
