Self Discharging Train Project

Special Projects

LaFarge Self Discharging Train Project

Our personnel have many years experience designing and supplying hydraulic equipment to meet the rigorous demands of operational use of hydraulic equipment used on railway rolling stock.
During a period of years between 1985 and 1990, working closely with our client, we designed, manufactured and installed the hydraulic systems used to control the discharge of stone products from wagons, along conveyors and stockpiled without the need for special sidings and discharge stations.

We have recently carried out major overhauls of the hydraulic systems and components on these trains to allow the trains to continue in service. Following a major wagon derailment, we were able to salvage, refurbish  and reuse components from the damaged wagons as part of the refurbishment.
