Heavy Haul

Customer Challenge:

Wood sleepers installed on a 6.8 degree curve experienced cracking and required regular maintenance inspections to ensure track safety. Freight cars on the track operate an approximately 32.5MT axle load at a maximum speed of 40kph.

Sicut Solution:

Sicut composite sleepers were installed and monitored for six years. 280 MGT traffic was recorded to have passed over the Sicut composite sleepers with no damage to the sleepers or the loosening of spikes.
