Rail Conversion

Designed and Built to last

New conversions

We  provide products and services to rail maintenance contractors. The product range includes new on track plant conversions, upgrades to existing equipment and a range of Road Rail Vehicles. We have invested in a test facility in support of upgrade programmes, where we can provide full testing in conjunction with vehicle acceptance bodies to the latest standards required by Irish Rail and Transport Infrastructure Ireland.

We have a long and strong working relationship with our OEM suppliers and in-depth access to ensure the conversion build is to the highest quality and is serviceable on site by your maintenance crews. 

Re-Gauging service

We provide a prompt re-gauging service of used equipment imported into Ireland. The scope of this work includes Rail Axles, Road Wheels and the Engineering Calculations to the VAB requirements.

Dumpers

As the appointed Irish agent for D’avino Dumpers we can offer an OEM based dumper that was purpose built with rail work in mind.

  • Versatile 4 wheel steering ensures On/Off tracking is done with ease.
  • Rotatable drivers console and seat allows the operator change view to the direction of travel in seconds
  • Single joystick control allows the operator to focus on the side tipping of the load with ease
  • Extra wide cab space allows driver / passenger comfort throughout the shift.
  • 3 position console allows the driver to sit sideways allowing dual view for rapid over and back travel.
  • High capacity skip - The TW120 is the only OEM dumper rated to 12 ton operation. It has the highest cubic capacity skip on the Irish Rail network.
  • Drum drive system ensuring maximum adhesion of the road tyre to the rail wheel. The track width of the tyres avoids tyre fouling against the track and ensures on/off tracking is done with ease.

Our testing facilities include a backwards stability test rig, delta Q test facility and a tip testing table located within our factory. We are able to offer complete or part upgrades, where customers wish to carry out some of the work themselves. In addition we provide a replacement ‘Rated Capacity Indicator’ upgrade service to enhance the machine performance.
