Customer Challenge:

Bulk of the network operates on overhead steel girders above road traffic. Overhead lines only use wood sleepers which are secured to steel girders. Wood sleepers create a damp contact with the steel girder thus reducing the life of steel and the sleeper. Customer also wanted a sleeper not to degrade like wood sleeper as maintenance and replacement costs are extremely high on the overhead network.

Sicut Solution:

Customer migrated to using composite sleepers in year 2000 and replaced bulk of the track with composite.
