Hilton completed the delivery, commissioning and training for the new tunnel cleaning vehicle for metro Lima in Peru.
The vehicle has been designed in cooperation with our customer Hitachi Rail and is custom made for operation in the new metro system. It is used to clean the tunnel walls and trackbed and is equipped with a 9000l water tank. The tunnel is cleaned via special high pressure rotating nozzles and a high power vacuum system to collect the dirt water with the rear suction system. The rail drive system consists of 2 hydrostatic driven bogies for a max. speed of 40 km/h. We are proud to be part of this unique project in Lima and we wish Metro Lima all the best with their new vehicle.
