SNCF Réseau ideally served by Faymonville

SNCF Réseau ideally served by Faymonville

For specialists, from specialists: SNCF Réseau, responsible to manage, operate and develop the French rail network, invested in a specific, 100% electric and completely automated machine to replace railway points. This machine has been produced by the French company Cipal and is called “Rapace Dac”. Faymonville recently delivered the special trailer to transport this impressive machine.

Only Faymonville had the technical know-how and the capacities to find a reliable solution to transport this heavy machine with a weight of 38t within the French norms of special transport (category two).

This project was finalised in cooperation with MAN, as they supplied the 6×4 truck of to be used for the transport. The defined trailer solution is a MultiMAX 1+3 semi-trailer from Faymonville with a width of 2.99m and an extra-long loading platform of 17m length. The trailer has a technical load distribution of 25t on the gooseneck and 11.5t on each axle.

The gooseneck is hydraulically adjustable in height to balance out uneven ground. The lashing rings are inwardly and outwardly foldable, even when the vehicle is loaded.

The simple but effective pneumatic suspension system offers a stroke of 200mm. The hydraulically steered axles react quickly and allow a steering angle of up to 42°. To summarise: the MultiMAX 1+3 proved to be the ideal solution for this specific project.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
