Railroads of Ecuador (2015)

  • Importation of 3 locomotives and 15 train wagons
  • L: 17, W:2,3, H: 3,8 mts
  • Weight: 60 tons

The project included the transporting of the trains to the Port of Santander, international transport to Guayaquil, Ecuador, storage of the wagons and their later delivery and unloading at the different train stations.

Challenge:

For the unloading of the locomotives at the different stations cranes had to be used, with a special separator due to the fact that locomotives have a center of gravity towards one side of the train and not the center of the unit. This increases the risk for the train to lose position during the unloading maneuvers.
