Turn-Key Engineering for air snow blower on funicular railway
In December 2017, the world's steepest funicular railway from the Muotatal to Stoos was opened in Switzerland. The operator commissioned ZAUGG AG EGGIWIL to build an air blower system for this funicular in order to clear the rails of snow and foliage during the winter season. At the beginning of February 2019 PROSE was selected by ZAUGG AG EGGIWIL to take over the mechanical engineering and to carry out the necessary calculations.

PROSE investigates the running safety under longitudinal compressive forces for London Underground
Germany-based manufacturer Kirow Ardelt GmbH is to deliver eight-axle railway cranes and switch tilters to London Underground (LU). These on-track machines (OTM) and additional wagons form the London Underground’s Modular Points and Crossing (MPaC) system. PROSE investigated the running safety under longitudinal compressive forces (LCF) of predefined consists of the MPaC system on LU as well as NR network in different specific coupling configurations i.e. central buffer coupler (drophead buckeye) and screw coupler with side buffers.
