WEGH GROUP PROVIDES TO THE VIETNAM RAILWAYS AN IMPORTANT ORDER OF LEVEL CROSSING MACHINES
(Fornovo di Taro, January 10th, 2017) In these weeks WEGH Group Spa, an Italian railway industry operating at international level for over 50 years, is consolidating its presence in the Asian market with the supply of a first important order of level crossing machines for the Vietnam Railways.
The 150 PL TD96/2 level crossing machines have been chosen and approved after an experimental period carried out by the engineers of the Vietnam Railways, who tested similar products from several international companies. WEGH’s level crossing machines have also been selected because of their operating reliability, which made them being employed also by the Italian State Railways. Since 2005, the Italian State Railways and many regional rail networks have installed more than 9,000 level crossing machines throughout the peninsula.
In Vietnam, WEGH’s TD96/2 level crossing machines will be used to protect the most important road crossings along the main railway line of the country, from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) as part of a broader plan to strengthen and modernize the rail service.
WEGH, with its own technical experts, has followed the type-approval stage, provided technical assistance for the first installations and trained the staff who handle facilities management, under an agreement which provides for additional supplies.
