Sneak peek: Renderings of Side Loader for Södra

Kiruna Wagon is manufacturing wagons for a growing number of industries and our engineers are constantly at work on new designs and functions to ensure our basic values, such as a high level of safety and optimal serviceability. Currently, we are working to meet the demands of the paper and cellulose industry for efficient and weather protected wagons for forklift loading and unloading. 

Our Side Loader is developed for the forest industry group Södra.

We have used our knowledge of lightweight solutions for heavy freight transport in the production of this first generation wagon called the Side Loader. With the aid of feedback from Södra, an international forest industry group, we have designed a freight wagon with a big and high loading door that opens along the entire long side, providing maximum workspace for the forklift. Prototype manufacturing of the Side Loader is currently at its peak.

 

The Side Loader has a big and high loading door that opens along the entire long side, providing maximum workspace for the forklift.

 

The new lightweight wagon is almost twice as long as its predecessor and will increase Södra’s pulp transporting capacity by 25 percent.

 

With these summery renderings we take the opportunity to wish you a happy summer!
