Faiveley Transport is upgrading CFR’s Görlitz trains in Rumania

Görlitz, now part of the Bombardier group, was a pioneer of double-deck trains in the 1950s. Many of these trains are still in use in Eastern Europe. That is the case in Rumania, where the national company CFR has launched an ambitious upgrade programme. In this project, Faiveley Transport has installed HVAC and CCTV systems for passenger comfort and security and replaced the braking systems in order to achieve 15% to 20% higher operating speeds. Through this contract, involving 140 carriages, Faiveley Transport is proving its capacity to carry out upgrades necessitating substantial engineering work and is placing itself in a good position for taking on other projects of this type.



The new Southco® R4-20 and R4-50 Rotary Latches provide superior performance for use in industrial, agricultural, construction, recreational and off-highway applications. The compact R4-20 offers a robust, space-saving design with both single-stage and two-stage engagement for secure latching. The rugged construction and corrosion-resistant finish of the R4-20 make it a desirable choice for harsh environments. The heavy-duty R4-50 satisfies the requirements of the U.S. FMVSS-206 standard for passenger entry doors and provides rugged design, durable construction and flexible actuation options.



All sectors of industry are being forced to review and re-shape their strategies and operations in order to meet the challenges thrown up by tough market conditions resulting from the economic downturn. In the global off-highway industry, many of the issues facing OEMs and end-users impact on OH vehicles and equipment and necessitate a change in focus in their design, functionality, technology and manufacture.
