The measuring vehicle for the MVŽSv2 railway superstructure and the measuring vehicle EM100 - two unique vehicles for diagnosing the railway network was presented by Správa železnic in main station in Prague. Their purchase is part of a strategy for the renewal of special vehicles designed for the diagnosis, maintenance and repair of the railway road. By 2030, the Railway Administration wants to invest CZK 8.7 billion in this renewal.

"One of the basic tasks of the Správa železnic is to ensure maximum safety of train operation on our rail network. Therefore, it is also necessary to invest in new diagnostic vehicles, which will thoroughly assess the level of safety and operability of the railway road as well as the quality of the technologies and materials used," said Jiří Svoboda, Director General of the Správa železnic.

The measuring vehicle for the railway superstructure MVŽSv2 is designed for continuous diagnostics of railway superstructure on national runways for speeds up to 200 km/h. Its supplier is NDCon LOGIC together with subcontractors from the Czech Republic, Austria, and the USA. The price of the vehicle is CZK 303 million. The vehicle measures, for example, the geometric parameters of the track, the transverse profile and the track drive, the gravel bed profile, and the distance of the secondary tracks with the control of the gauge, thus replacing outdated manual measurements.

Measuring vehicle EM 100 is designed for continuous diagnostics of railway superstructure on regional runways for speeds up to 100 km/h. It is a special traction unit with a towed service car, which will allow replacing the serving MD1. The supplier is the same as in the first case, the price is CZK 267 million. The vehicle is designed to measure the geometric parameters of the track and transverse profile as well as the rolling rails. Both vehicles will be operated at the Správa železnic’s Centre for Telematics and Diagnostics. Their full operational deployment is expected from next year.

In addition, the railway infrastructure manager plans to expand its diagnostic vehicle park with a more system locomotive Siemens Vectron, which will be delivered this autumn.
