UFM160 is approved to run self-propelled

27 June 2016


Since June 14th, our measurement train for track geometry and overhead-line geometry named UFM160 is approved to run self-propelled in France with all French safety systems (especially speed control “KVB”).
This is a long process from the design, installing and tests for safety signalling systems but also brakes and all the automatic controls. A unique achievement!
These tasks were carried out in close cooperation with several SNCF Departments but also Plasser & Theurer, manufacturer of the train and SIFEL, responsible for the work, SNCF and Eurailscout team.
The operations will be more flexible for our customers in France.

Also we are pleased to announce that our UFM160 was upgraded to measure maintenance parameters for Eurobalises and KVB.
