Final day at InnoTrans 2018
Today marks the end of the 12th edition of InnoTrans, which has been a week-long opportunity for us to meet you – manufacturers, operators, authorities and maintainers –, and illustrate how we can assist you through the vehicle lifecycle.
Our stand visitors had the opportunity to take a journey through the vehicle life cycle, as well discuss their mobility needs with our team of experts. By going through the different stations at our stand – planning, procurement, development, manufacture, homologation, operation and maintenance and modernisation –, our visitors could understand better how PROSE can help them solve their mobility needs and assist them throughout their projects.
This year’s InnoTrans has been a successful week for our team, who was present at our stand at all times to assist our clients as well as potential clients who visited us. InnoTrans 2018 also allowed us to present two of our newest offices to our clients: PROSE France and PROSE Austria. We also presented our role in Fraport’s People Mover along with our partners in this project, OBERMEYER and Ramboll. During this week we also had several students visiting our stand, and through our career point we could give an idea of what it’s like to work at PROSE and present a few of the many reasons why to join our team.
“This was a great experience for PROSE to see the trust and interest our clients have to tackle challenges together with us. This was also a motivating week for us as a team at PROSE – our presence at the booth allowed us to see a whole picture of our abilities as a team, as opposed to the focus we usually have during our daily work. It has also allowed us to see the big picture of the challenges in our sector – which serve as a basis to constantly adapt to the constantly-changing needs of the railway market. – Stefan Bühler, CEO @ PROSE.
Goldenpass Express: The gauge changing bogie and the associated gauge changing system in Zweisimmen were successfully tested and presented to the public
PROSE was significantly involved in the development of the prototype for these bogies as well as the track side gauge changing facility. This bogie is a world novelty, as it not only adapts the gauge from standard gauge to metre gauge, but also adapts the height of the vehicle to the platform height (in this case a difference of 180mm).
