The tram of The Hague in the Netherlands has taken its new Hilton catenary maintenance vehicle into operation. The vehicle is equipped with many innovative items and was one of the eye catchers on the Innotrans show in Berlin.

Besides, the cabin and workshop including the equipment lockers, are made out of 100% glass fibre reinforced polyester (GRP). This guarantees an optimal isolation, excellent anti-corrosion properties and a long life time. Hilton delivers all polyester bodywork with standard 10 years warranty.
