Thanks to support from our customer Vossloh, the switch wagon Switch Tilter will be presented at outdoor stand 4/110 – this vehicle is distinguished by speed, precision and outstanding work safety in track construction. It is the first switch transport wagon with TSI approval in which the load securing and unblocking is carried out from the ground, thus reducing the risk of accidents considerably. The platform – which must not be accessed for loading procedures – is also distinguished by its low platform height, enabling fast and safe work in the rail network in conjunction with the Kirow railway crane. Shifting the platform in the horizontal direction allows it to keep the neighbouring platform free, thereby ensuring smooth
construction site logistics.
In line with its commitment to sustainability, Kirow will be exhibiting this year with the same shiny silver stand as 2016. The Kirow railway crane Multi Tasker and its method of working in track and bridge construction or accident service will be presented on the large LED wall as will the switch wagon and Tracklayer.
The Tracklayer is an all-terrain specialist machine, that is ideally used for track construction on single-track
This program will be rounded off by the Kirow Trade Fair Café, the raised area of the exhibition stand, where
we shall be pleased to welcome you. You can find us here offering no end of advice on the topics of track
construction and rail accident service. Culinary snacks will be provided by chef Tibor Herzigkeit and his team,
accompanied by drinks and coffee specialities, prepared by a professional barista.
Tibor Herzigkeit will run the café in the new SPHERE building at the Kirow production facility in Leipzig this
coming year. The SPHERE is a realisation of one of the last designs of the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.
We are looking forward to a successful trade fair and interesting and diverse conversation with you.
