Completion of the Modernisation of a double-deck suburban trainset
A small ceremony was held on the 4th of July 2018, to celebrate the completion of the major project at the Zurich Main Station, following seven years of rolling stock modernisation.
PROSE provided its engineering support to the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) for the complete trainset conversion for noise management, weight management, homologation management, proof of running behaviour, investigation of loading-gauge restrictions, brake and traction issues for locomotive Re450 and the conformity verification for the trailer bogies, including new wheelsets and test supervision.
