UPGRADING OLD VEHICLES AND WAGONS IS A HIGHLY COST-EFFECTIVE
ALTERNATIVE TO PROCURING NEW CONSTRUCTION AND MAINTENANCE
WAGONS AS MAINTENANCE VEHICLES
Old wagons can be repurposed as highly efficient maintenance and construction vehicles with the addition of a crane or an access platform. The power for the crane or access platform is supplied by a diesel or electric power pack, which is in turn powered by the traction vehicle.
NEW USE – OLD VEHICLE
During the course of a general overhaul, a 30-year-old vehicle is equipped with a new PA115 access platform. Repurposed in this way, it is used for aintenance activities on the Ore Line in the far north of Sweden.
Vehicles up to 40 years old are overhauled and equipped with state-of-the-art cranes and access platforms. This gives them a "second life", allowing them to give many more years of efficient service in construction and maintenance activities.
