HŽ Infrastruktura and Vossloh Rail Services signed a EUR 4.5 million framework agreement for rail maintenance services in Croatia. The framework agreement includes rail measurement and testing, data analysis, and rail machining using different technological procedures.
“Through a prior survey of the current condition of the track infrastructure as part of our intelligent rail-management process, it is possible, depending on the condition and age of the rails, to select, plan and implement the
commercially most viable maintenance scheme from the large portfolio of alternatives available”, says Guido Hanspach, Director for International Sales & Marketing of Vossloh Rail Services.
Ivan Vuković, Board Member of HŽ INFRASTRUKTURA, emphasizes, “This contract will help us to extend the useful life of rails and thereby save costs of infrastructure in the medium term.”
A valuable contribution to rail maintenance and noise minimization will be made by the High Speed Grinding (HSG) method; rail maintenance by timetable, with no impact on the normal train service.
