This year even 8 Croatian companies presented their products at the most important international fair of transport engineering InnoTrans 2016, which was held in Berlin last week.
Railway Carriages Factory Čakovec took part in InnoTrans for the first time
The Railway Carriages Factory Čakovec, a subsidiary company of HZ Cargo Ltd, presented their products for the first time at the transport engineering fair. As the main product, the company presented an innovative self-propelled wagon for transportation of bulk cargo that has drawn great attention of the public as well as business partners.
According to the technical specifications, this wagon can move without a locomotive because it has its own engine built in and it is designed to save energy and reduce the time of transport and unloading. The hydraulic system and adjustable door on the side allow unloading of materials in controlled and safe conditions. The Railway Carriages Factory Čakovec developed this wagon within the project "Marketintroductionof a self-propelledbulkcarriage - SELF PROP RAIL" financed by the European Union with € 444,694.00. The aim of the project was the development of a more efficient means of transport for bulk carriers with a reduced negative impact on the environment.
