When a railway vehicle derails, the wish is to have the vehicle back on track in no time in a safe and controlled manner. It is important to have a system in place that can do the job.
Holmatro offers rerailing systems that are suitable for different rerailing applications.
The Holmatro rerailing systems are built with three main elements in mind:
One of the main reasons why a rerailing system needs to be fast is because time is crucial. Especially when the downtime costs can increase a lot every hour the track is blocked.
A great example of what makes the Holmatro rerailing systems fast is the use of lightweight components.
This means maximum performance at a minimum weight.
A safer rerailing system speaks for itself simply because the recovery team needs to work in a safe environment. That’s why some unique safety features were added to the Holmatro Rerailing Systems.
The Holmatro Rerailing Systems are developed with controllability in mind so features in the systems ensure that the user can operate the system in a controlled manner. You are in control!
Time is key when a railway vehicle derails. With that in mind Holmatro has developed a Compact Rerailing Unit that is the lightest solution on the market to rerail a lightweight railway vehicle with the highest precision in a fast and safe manner.
