MPV – the versatile maintenance machine
Railcare has developed a new concept for railway maintenance machines, Multi-Purpose Vehicle, MPV.
The MPV is a machine with a versatile area of use in railway maintenance. The vehicle is self-propelled and equipped with vacuum pumps, hydraulics, and control cabins so that it can be used as a complement to Railcare’s vacuum excavators, snow melters and function as a locomotive for, eg. macadam wagons during track work. The MPV can be delivered with battery or diesel power.
Working underground and in urban environments places high demands on safety and the working environment, along with high efficiency. The battery power option, which has been developed in collaboration with Epiroc and Northvolt, is proven in harsh environments, eliminates fossil emissions, and reduces noise levels significantly.
