ÖBB's Lainzer Tunnel open
On December 9 ÖBB's Lainzer Tunnel opened for regular traffic.
already in July, ÖBB effectuated test runs on the Wien - St Pölten line at speeds up to 250km/h.
The test runs included the Conductor Bar in Lainzer Tunnel.
Franz Kurzweil and Wolfgang Kapfenberger of ÖBB Engineering Services: „Results on the conductor bar are more than satisfactory. Also the Neutral Section, situated at km 4.6, which is separating the substations of Auhof, Meidling and Hütteldorf, is fulfilling the requirements. The results are compliant with Technical Specifications for Interoperability (TSI)."
Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn, Depot Glisergrund
Commissioning of the pivoting conductor bar in MGB's depot at Glisergrund is complete.
On the left hand side the conductor bar is being swivelled away, to make room for jacking up the vehicle (on the right).
Train washing plant Lucern
F+F designed and built the control and interlocking system for SBB's Train washing plant in Lucern
SBB's project manager Stefan Imboden was quite satisfied with our work.
The plant has been working trouble-free ever since commissioning on November 22nd.
Following this success, F+F has been appointed to equip Biel with a similar installation.
Tunnel Landikon, soffit stabilisation
Already in July 2012 the conventional contact line has been replaced by a conductor bar, segments of which can be removed to allow free access to the tunnel vault.
Within 5 to 10 minutes an overhead line fitter can remove or re-install a segment with the assistance of the local contractor.
Furrer+Frey GB Ltd
Furrer+Frey GB Ltd has moved to its new office in London.
We are close to Euston and King’s Cross/St. Pancras mainline and underground train stations.
If you are coming from King's Cross look for the exit that leads you to Euston Road and then turn right towards Euston Station. When you get to the British Library cross the road and there is a ‘Pret a Manger’ Coffee shop at the corner. Turn left on Mabledon Place and we are just in front of the pub ‘Mavels Tavern’. The Building has no number but it says ‘Hamilton House’ and there is a sign saying ‘NUT’. Just make your way to the 4th floor where there is a REGUS receptionist guiding you to the F+F offices.
If you are coming from Euston Station, you need to turn left towards King's Cross. When you get to ‘Pret a Manger’ turn right and follow the same directions as described above.
Also in 2012 F+F was present at Innotrans in Berlin :
