For peacekeeping operations
  • The Flexiwaggon MW© are always manufactured in accordance with relevant national safety regulations.
  • Loadable length: 17.3 m. Load up to 80 tonnes. Load: Rails, upper-edge: 180-230 mm.
  • Control of launching, i.e. loading/unloading using button and remote controls.
  • The MW©version allows loading and unloading from the cradle holding the vehicle stands to the right and left sides of the track.
  • WCS – Wagon Control System. This system controls the wagon’s functions and prevents damage by monitoring for malfunctions on the wagon.
  • There are integrated poles for work site lighting.
  • Shaft generators generate energy stored (72 Kw) in batteries on the wagon.
  • Electrical outlets for 240/400V, 50-60 Hz.
Accessory Equipment
  • TCS (Train Control System): Receivers are located in the locomotive with the driver. Information is received from the WCS system, which monitors the wagon’s operation, wheel bearings, deviations in the braking system and other aspects of the wagon. With the TCS, the locomotive driver can control loading and unloading on one, multiple or all wagons in the train set at the same time.
  • Remote control: The wagon comes with either wireless or with wired controls for loading and unloading the cradle. The lorry driver, the locomotive driver or other authorized train personnel can work the controls. The remote control also simplifies work by maintenance and service personnel since they can control the cradle from a distance.
  • Wheel stock sensors: The sensor system discovers early overheating in the wheel stock and prevents malfunction.
  • Brake sensors: The sensor system registers when braking effect diminishes and brake components need replacing.
  • Design changes are possible in the form of shorter or longer cradles, wider openings in cradles, length of loading and unloading ramps and other needs.

The flexible and unique features of Flexiwaggon MW© wagons for peacekeeping operations allow intervention forces to complete peacekeeping missions faster and safer. Major advantages include quick transport and quick loading. When the terrain inhibits side unloading it allows vehicles to drive off directly onto the railbed/embankment.

The Flexiwaggon MW© is adapted for all-terrain vehicles, such as those needed for retrieval of goods and personnel. It also saves significant time when performing rail embankments and bridge railing repairs and other measures requiring excavation equipment and/or crane lorries.The train set can be connected from either direction for optimal efficiency. Mobile field hospitals, ambulances, fire engines, excavators, crawlers, all-terrain vehicles and other vehicles can be connected in the order that offers maximum time savings.

The standard Flexiwaggon MW© can handle crane lorry weights of up to 80 tonnes and has a lifting capacity of up to 220 tonnes.

The Flexiwaggon MW© is manufactured and equipped in accordance to customer wishes.
