Track infrastructure for DB Netz AG in Germany, Maschen
Product category: Shanting technology, Haulage technology
Country: Germany, Maschen
DB Netz AG commissioned PINTSCH to supply shunting systems in Maschen.
88 sorting sidings in the Maschen north/south and south/north train formation facilities were equipped with shunting systems in 11 construction stages and put into operation.
Of these, 40 shunting systems were equipped with additional functionality, the so-called braking function. This prevents wagons from moving on their own, due to the force exerted by strong winds. This can occur in Hamburg Maschen at any time, due to the geographical location of the train formation system and local weather conditions. To this end, the shunting trolleys were equipped with four controllable arms.
