WINDHOFF Wins DB General Contract for Lifting Jacks

For the first time, Deutsche Bahn (DB) has awarded all the parts of the general contract for the manufacture, delivery, installation, commissioning, and testing and approval of lifting jack sets to one single bidder.

At the beginning of April the invitation to tender was decided in favour of WINDHOFF, and a considerable part of the order income in the Rail Technology department is thereby secured for years to come. The contract, which has an 8-year term, includes four batches of lifting jacks in load capacities 16, 20, 25 and 35 tonnes, with unit quantities of 4, 8, 10 or 12 lifting jacks per set.
