The German rail infrastructure market needs more rail transport units as the number of projects across the country increases. Although a significant number of rail transport units are already in operation, availability remains a challenge. The number of construction projects is increasing, while track availability requirements are steadily increasing, i.e., track closures for construction activities are decreasing. To overcome the bottleneck, it was decided to build new rail transport units that can deliver ultra-long rails directly to the construction site from voestalpine Track Solutions' two locations in Duisburg and Königsborn.
The new design of the PDs has also been modified to make them compatible with all unloading equipment of all Central European infrastructure operators. As a result, these four new TEs are immediately available and ready for use in all Central European markets.
This fits in well with our other rail services for infrastructure operators, such as just-in-time rail logistics to the construction site, stationary flash-butt welding and milling, the manufacture of insulating joints and transition joints, the production of fitting rails, and end-of-life rail reconditioning.
