Low-Vibration Track system conquering the world
When it comes to installing Low-Vibration Track tie blocks, Vigier Rail is on the mark, and is thus working on a new line being built for the 2014 Olympic Games in Russia and the Marmaray rail tunnel in Turkey.
The city of Sotchi, in Russia, is to host the 2014 winter Olympics. Vigier Rail is providing its expertise in environmentally friendly transport systems by installing Low-Vibration Track (LVT) tie blocks on the new rail track to the city. For this massive project a new facility for producing ballastless track units under LVT license to Vigier Rail has been opened in Russia. It includes an immediate-strip casting machine.
In Istanbul, in Turkey, 80,000 tie blocks will be produced for the construction of a 12-km long section of dual-track railroad in the Marmaray tunnel. Here too, Vigier Rail is providing an immediate-strip casting machine. The tunnel connecting the two sides of the Bosphorus is scheduled to open in 2013.
