The Nordic Anti-icing system is purely designed for preventive treatment of rolling stock with the use of a special fluid mixed with water. The liquid remains on the treated surfaces as a protective layer and prevents ice build-ups. The fluid is sprayed on boogies and selected sections of the underframe of the train. The excess of the fluid is filtered and re-used.
Infrastructure – Railway infrastructure critical components protection against winter conditions is key to safe operations.
- Ice build-ups on catenary will block fluent operations and speed-up wear-out process of pantograph components.
- Switch blocked because of snow and ice, can deorganize local or country-wide operations.
The weather gates seals tightly around the entire vehicle, from the sides, above and below. They are customised for the specific opening complete with dock shelter, electrical installation, control and integration of the signal system. We provide the whole installation and commissioning.
This year’s winter has proved that despite the investments in infrastructure and new rolling stock deliveries, infrastructure managers and operators still fail to cope with the difficulties associated with frost and numerous snowfalls. Rolling stock breakdowns and damage of the infrastructure cause train delays and cancellations.
