Commodity customer as first TransANT test pilot

TransANT goes by rail. Bernegger GmbH carries out the first test drives and puts the new platform wagon through its paces.

20 of our revolutionary TransANT platform wagons have already been produced. Now the first test runs are being carried out. Test drives are carried out under real conditions with the aim of putting the vehicles through their paces before delivery. The experience gained in operating the newly developed product helps us to further develop and optimize TransANT, to eliminate teething troubles and thus make its use unique.

Always on the lookout for technological progress

TransANT will now be put on track for Bernegger GmbH. The family business, which specialises in raw materials, the construction industry and environmental technology, is the first customer to be able to use TransANT. The pursuit of technological leadership in the construction industry drives the state-awarded mining company to permanently further develop technical applications. Heimo Gruber, terminal manager at Spital am Pyhrn, is all the more pleased to be the first to be able to travel with the newly produced innovative wagon material.

The 40ft platform wagon loaded with 20ft open top containers is now being used for one of Bernegger's transports. Until the beginning of December, he now has the opportunity to test loading and unloading processes as well as the use of containers loaded with building materials such as stones, gravel and excavated material. And Bernegger can't be fooled when it comes to the efficient handling of transports and the seamless supply of raw materials. After all, he transports 600,000 tonnes of raw materials a year by rail, which are extracted from lime and dolomite mines as well as from gravel and ballast plants.
