For installing structures on the railway, we use heavy lifting RRV’s including the Colmar T10,000 FSCG and two Colmar T12,000 FS heavy lift RRVs. These can be equipped with a reverse knuckle boom for working between overhead structures and around structures.
These versatile, capable machines have increased working capacity over our fleet of standard RRV’s and are unique to Van Elle, making us the best in class in the UK for these projects.
In addition, we own and operate Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWP) which work in tandem with the RRV’s to provide safe and efficient access for the installation team.
Our rail team continue to invest and innovate by developing new techniques such as the installation of OLE steelwork with a Movax MPM400 Manipulator.
This attachment is equipped with a precision control system, allowing the RRV operator to install a structure more than twice as fast as conventional methods, removing the need to have installers within the exclusion zone.
This leads to a much safer and more efficient solution.
