Railbound Transport - Rail

Ground rail transport is used for transport of material and persons on horizontal surface tracks or roadways and tunnels of underground mines where the track inclination does not exceed 35 ‰ and the profile is ≥10 m². Provided that underground roadways are driven horizontally with their life span planed in an order of years, the ground rail transport becomes the most efficient and economical mode of transport with highest transport capacity.

Ferrit manufactures, diesel, battery or electric trolley locomotives in weight categories from 6,5 t to 19 t.

In cases, where there is requirement on transport of excessive loads in inclined roadways of up to 30°, ground diesel-hydraulic rack and pinion systems might be used. Ground rack and pinion electro-hydraulic systems might be used in inclines of up to 35°.
