Production Report: Concentrate Wagon SA 36

We are now almost halfway through the serial production of twenty-five Concentrate Wagon SA 36 destined for Boliden. The initial ten wagons have been delivered and can be viewed in action on route between the Aitik mine and the Rönnskär smelter.

The production line for Concentrate Wagon SA is made up of 15 stations assigned to the manufacturing of frame, basket, bogie, roof, hatch and brake system. The welding work on this project is carried out according to the requirements of SS EN 15085-CP C2.
