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.

PROSE investigates and evaluates BVB unusual infrastructure damages
Basler Verkehrs-Betriebe (BVB) have optimized several processes in its technology management division and made changes to its organizational structure following the discovery made last summer of unusual damage on its tracks. This discovery showed a different, new damage pattern which can be attributed to a maintenance backlog in wheelset machining. The BVB Board of Directors wanted to understand the circumstances and causes as well as the administrative and personnel responsibilities that led to this maintenance backlog. The board therefore commissioned an independent external investigation for which the results are now available.

Switzerland is synonym to chocolate and cheese – and of course: railways! To ensure that it stays this way, Swiss Railways (SBB), Bern-Lötschberg-Simplon Bahn (BLS), Schweizerische Südostbahn (SOB), the Rhaetian Railway (RhB), and the Union of Public Transport (UPT) have joined forces and got the entire railway sector involved in the program “smartrail4.0”.
