Heavy freight vibration-protection solutions prevent the track superstructure components, including the rails, tension clamps, sleepers and ballast, from being overloaded. This increases the availability of the route, reduces maintenance requirements and prolongs the service life. In short, network operators benefit from lower life cycle costs and increased profitability.
The brochure sets out the challenges for heavy rail routes and gives an insight into projects that have been successfully implemented in a number of countries including Brazil, Sweden, USA and China.
