Self-propelled wagon prototype

first_imgCROATIA: A self-propelled wagon fitted with a 55 kW diesel generator and hydraulic transmission giving it the ability to move around worksites at up to 100 km/h under remote control has been developed by RZV Čakovec and partners.The prototype has two ballast hoppers which can be hydraulically tipped in three directions, with lineside staff using a remote control handset. The tare weight is 37·3 tonnes, with a payload of 52·7 tonnes or volume of 50 m3. Knorr-Bremse brakes are fitted. The intention is that a locomotive would haul ballast wagons to a worksite, then uncouple and return to base. The self-propelled wagons would be able to move around the site and to nearby worksites under their own power, eliminating the need for the inefficient use of a large locomotive for low-speed short-distance movements. The wagons could also be used for general freight at docks and terminals, with a range of around 1 km. It is not envisaged that the self-propelled wagon would act as a locomotive in in own right to shunt conventional unpowered vehicles. Development has been supported by the EU’s Eco-Innovation Programme, which met half of the €889 386 cost. Participants in the project included Croatian rolling stock manufacturer RZV Čakovec, the University of Zagreb which undertook lifecycle studies, Superna which provided technical support and administration, Institut Kirilo Savi which was responsible for certification and Altius which provided marketing services.last_img read more

Caster wins IAAF battle following appeal

first_imgCaster Semenya has been temporarily cleared to compete in her best track events, following a decision by the Swiss Supreme Court to suspend controversial international gender rules while the athlete’s appeal is being heard.“I am thankful to the Swiss judges for this decision,” Semenya said in a statement released be her lawyers on Monday.The court was expected to issue another ruling on the suspension of the IAAF’s regulations after receiving submissions from the global athletics body, but Semenya was pleased to be allowed to compete unrestricted, albeit for an indefinite period.“I hope that following my appeal I will once again be able to run free,” she said.Semenya had confirmed last week that she would file an appeal after losing a battle against the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), which cleared new rules forcing athletes with differences of sexual development (DSD) to take hormone suppressants in order to compete against women in certain track and field events.Though she had been briefly banned from participating against women over distances ranging from 400m to the mile (1.609km), Semenya had entered the women’s 3 000m race at next month’s Diamond League meeting in Stanford, displaying some defiance by stepping up in distance.Following the latest development, however, she was likely to return to the track over shorter distances while the IAAF rules were suspended.For more sport your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.last_img read more
