SMT Scharf AG wins another key order from Russia for rack-and-pinion railways
This customer has already been successfully using SMT Scharf's monorail hanging railways for several years. The rack-and-pinion railways are to be used underground to accelerate and simplify the transport of heavy roof-support units on inclines of more than 20%. By using the rack-and-pinion railways, the customer avoids having to reinforce the rock strata in the mines and makes optimum use of the tunnels' cross section. In addition, the customer has also secured the possibility of refitting the rack-and-pinion railways to become monorail hanging railways which can be used on other lines.
"We are very pleased that we have again been able to convince a customer of our systems'high performance," commented Dr. Friedrich Trautwein, SMT Scharf AG's CEO. "This order means that we have now grown to become the market leader in this segment as well, just one year after presenting our rack-and-pinion railway for the first time. It again underscores that our international expansion strategy is right - in particular in countries such as Russia, China and South Africa."
