The railways administration would invite tenders for the remaining bogies next month,' said the official who sought anonymity.
Railways has been earning Rs105,000 per bogie from Faisalabad and Rs91,000 per bogie per round trip from Multan since the re-launch of the cargo express on Dec 12.
This means that the entire commuter train, with the bogies
that are to be overhauled, will travel to the workshop in Kiel.
Nathan Cartwright, head of design at Bombardier's bogies division, is rightly proud of the team's achievements.
Some of the division's engineers started their careers at British Rail, before privatisation and a series of takeovers--involving companies such as ABB and Adtranz--led eventually to the bogies team being housed at Bombardier's Litchurch Lane train-manufacturing site in Derby.
Each of those 10 bogies collects lots of dirt, sand and mud during operation, mainly because of how the bottom of the bogie is shaped.
But that's what will happen if your operators don't keep the bogie bottoms free of crud and you don't keep the suspension cylinder's wiper seal in place.
The 200 complete bogies, which will be used for trains of subway lines 4 and 5, will be manufactured in Bombardier's European Competence Center for bogies in Siegen, Germany.
Our constant success in supplying to external customers not only illustrates our expertise in the development of bogie systems and components, but also further strengthens Bombardier's market leadership position in this core technology for rail vehicles", explains Robert Wassmer, President of the Bogies Division, Bombardier Transportation.
Contract notice: Delivery of framework contracts to acquire electric vehicles bogie
ALSTOM has opened a facility at its site in Neuhausen, Switzerland to test and validate the bogies for its trains.
The manufacturer has developed a test bench at the site that can accommodate complete bogies, including underframe, suspensions, transmission and engines.
The first order is for the supply of automatic block equipment in Italy; the second, for the delivery of trailer cars and bogies
in France; and the third one calls for the manufacture of bogies
for the Caracas metro in Venezuela.
The present disclosure relates to the manufacture, supply, installation, commissioning and acceptance of a functional, operational and safe, CE compliant DrehgestelldruckprE-f and measurement object in the workshop Schoeneweide Berlin S-Bahn Berlin GmbH : In the regular maintenance of S-Bahn vehicles bogies
are expanded and processed according to the deterioration or diagnosis.
Bombardier Transportation announced today that it received an order for the supply of 256 motorized and trailer bogies
intended for the Z2N rolling stock (double-deck electric unit) of the French National Railways (SNCF).
