SMT Scharf receives first order for new rack-and-pinion railway
SMT Scharf presented this innovative train to the specialist public for the first time in November 2007 at the mining technology and equipment trade fair CHINA COAL & MINING EXPO 2007. In the meantime it has received all necessary licenses.
The customer will use the train in a hard coal mine in Russia, where it will be used, in particular, to transport heavy roof support units at inclines of up to 30 degrees. This customer already uses SMT Scharf's monorail hanging railways in three of its mines.
This order, with a volume of slightly more than € 1 million, is a key step in growing SMT Scharf AG's business: "We are very pleased that our newly developed rack-and-pinion railway has convinced our customers so quickly. That's a positive sign - also for possible additional orders," commented Dr. Friedrich Trautwein, SMT Scharf AG's CEO. "Russia was already our key growth market last year. We believe that this country offers further potential, and we plan to penetrate this potential even better with new products and our newly formed branch office."
