Rail track maintenance and renewal
Eiffage Rail reinforced its position as leader in the Track Ballast Renovation programmes by acquiring Meccoli in 2019.
As maintaining traffic flow on our customers’ networks without interruption to service is our priority, we have considerable material resources at our disposal, including several high-performance mechanized trains (high output track replacement units) capable of renewing up to 1 km of track in 5 hours.
Whether the works are non-sequential or high-output, our teams operate fast and accurately, demonstrating their ability to work to tight deadlines with professionalism and technical skill, while guaranteeing the safe conditions which are essential to successful worksite projects.
Enorail: a fast following train that is unique in France
Eiffage Rail, in a consortium with ETF, has built a new-generation high-speed train, unique in France, called ENORAIL, which handles the complete renewal of all track components in a single operation: removal of rails, sleepers and ballast, followed by the laying of new sleepers and rails and ballasting.
Enorail's ultimate goal is to renew approximately 1 km of track per day.
An optimal maintenance workshop for rolling stock upkeep
Eiffage Rail’s maintenance workshop at Auvers-le-Hamon inaugurated in July 2019 enables rolling stock upkeep and regulatory technical monitoring. These are major issues in our Rail activities, ensuring that teams in the field have quality materials to work with, in optimum operating conditions.
