Train wheel manipulator and Elevator plateform
Our client was looking to rejuvenate his turntable which had been installed and put into operation in the early 1920s. We had the mandate to design, manufacture and supervise the installation of a turntable respecting the new standards and the new operational reality of the client, and this, inside the imprint of the original table.
The project was carried out in synergy with several stakeholders. Frequent communications during the project made it possible to quickly resolve the limiting issues identified by each of the stakeholders. Thanks to listening and the sharing of expertise between everyone, we have delivered equipment of which we are proud.
The turntable is now quieter, easier to operate and maintain. It stands our rigorous winters with heavy accumulations of snow! The turntable project had all the characteristics that drive our passion for challenges.
