New deliveries: Rail and trackbed cleaning vehicle for Bybanen (Norway)

Hilton delivered a new rail and trackbed cleaning vehicle to Bybanen in Norway. The vehicle has been built on a Mercedes Benz Axor 4x2 chassis. The rail drive unit is a hydrostatic driven lorry. Also the fan, the water pumps and the hydraulic pumps are hydrostatic driven. The cleaning unit consists of two suction shoes between the rails and 1 suction shoe on each side next to the track. The groove cleaning suction shoes are equipped with integrated 520 bar nozzles for contactless high pressure groove cleaning. Due to the combination of a rail and track bed cleaning system, the vehicle is a multi-functional cleaning vehicle with a wide range of use. On the front side 2 additional roller brushes have been mounted to increase the cleaning width. It is definitely a highly efficient Allrounder for all kind of cleaning operations on track. To be able to work at night, the vehicle has been built in the Hilton super silent version with foldable side claps and a fully isolated fan (max. 80 dBA). We would like to thank our friends in Bergen for the good cooperation and wish them all the best with the new vehicle.
