Dacharbeitsstand für ein Reparaturwerk in Leipzig

Roof work stand for a repair plant

Railroad equipment is as individual as the plant in which it is installed. The technology must be adapted to the specific conditions in each case. This applies in particular to equipment in existing buildings. Blumenbecker has many years of experience in planning and building workshop equipment for domestic and foreign railroad companies.

The task

Design, construction, supply and installation of roof working platforms and locomotive driver walkways. The contract value amounted to approx. €1.6 million.

The performance

Blumenbecker Technik was awarded the contract for the construction of the roof working platforms and engine driver walkways after fierce competition with two other companies. After a planning phase of around 4 months and a construction period of approximately 5 months, the work was completed. ‘The entire project presented high technical challenges,’ explains the project engineer. ‘Thanks to the excellent cooperation between the departments, we were able to fulfil these tasks perfectly.’ A total of approx. 180 tonnes of steel were processed as lightweight construction and over 160 drives were installed for the system's extensions and safety devices. The complex electrical control system, including the PLC and the safety control system for monitoring the overhead line (10 kV), was designed and built by the control engineering department. At the same time, the Crane Service Schafstädt department, which had received the order for the hoists, planned and installed a ‘curve travelling trolley’ and an overhead crane.
