Railway Concreting Trains

ADLER Technologies, expert in engineering, turnkey solution and equipment dedicated to the concrete building material industry has developed the automated concreting train, a unique process and innovative technology. Based on the company’s exceptional mastering of concrete, both the material and its processing, it remains an unmatched solution for continuous concrete production dedicated to difficult work areas and hard environmental conditions.

The trains provided by ADLER Technologies are used for continuous concrete production utilizing an industrial process of only 3 operators. These multipurpose trains are particularly adapted for concreting of tunnel tracks, platforms, pylon foundations for electrical projects, outside tracks and all projects near the tracks.

This fully automated solution includes a concrete train (the key to the solution) – true mobile concrete plant that guarantees a continuous process for long-term production at industrial scale, a concrete shuttle that makes the link between the train and the dispenser unit, a concrete dispenser unit and a storage plant. ADLER Technologies make it adaptable, clean, safe and efficient while meeting the most complex quality specifications.

Concreting Trains are Designed to be Adaptable and Flexible

Each concreting train is made of a pumping wagon, a mixing plant wagon, storing wagons (for aggregates, cement, and water), power and waste wagons. The train capacity is based on production shifts and the number of storing wagons can be adjusted easily according to daily production.

Concrete is produced timely and continuously. At the same time, depending on a constant conformity control with concrete specifications, concrete formulation and production can be adjusted easily and automatically if required. Adjustment can be made also at any time during the process in order to take into account the climatic conditions of the tunnel.

Last but not least, concrete production can be immediately withheld without producing train waste in case of unexpected contingencies

Quality Concrete Guaranteed

The concreting process is fully automated and monitored. On board, the laboratory follows and records the information concerning the quality of the concrete for every meter of the track produced and ensures the most efficient traceability. This continuous quality check guarantees consistent concrete quality.

A Safe Solution for Operators

All conveyors and train equipment are equipped with fences / mobile protection to ensure the highest level of safety. The dispenser unit reduces the number of workers on the rack. All of them are positioned and assigned to a specific work place during the process.

A Clean Concreting Process

All elements are designed to avoid any waste on the existing tracks. Designed to collect all waste generated during production, the concrete train is equipped with dedicated containers…

ADLER technologies concreting trains have a proven experience

Credibility, accountability, and integration into a complex management project: ADLER Technologies meets all criteria to participate in challenging project such as Gotthard tunnel, Channel tunnel or Thames river tunnel in London.

St. Gotthard tunnel: ADLER Technologies provides an unmatched technological solution, meeting premium quality, operation safety, and specific precision requirements of the construction project of the century. The whole concreting train, 500m long, 23 wagons of over 1200 tons, was delivered by the company for cementing the 57km railway tunnel (meaning 114km of track) at a rate of 260m per day.

Channel Tunnel : the basic weight of the train, made up of 19 wagons, is approximately 1500 tons with an overall length of 540m. The unit carries materials to mix 275m3 of concrete in less than 4 hours. It was the biggest mixing plant on rails in Europe in the 90’s. Engineered for the Channel tunnel, this train is used to concrete tracks for the TGVs (Train de Grande Vitesse), the high-speed train in France.

Thames river tunnel in London: commissioned in 2004, this train was the solution for concreting tracks in the railway tunnel that passes under the Thames in London. This unique concrete train consisted of 19 wagons, which included all mandatory equipment for construction in addition to two welfare and workshop wagons.
