Bemo Rail at InnoTrans Berlin

Last week, Bemo Rail was present with a stand and a locomotive at InnoTrans in Berlin. We proudly showed our shunting locomotive BRDE-80. Through this way we want to thank everyone for the interest and the visit of our stand. It was a big success!


BRDE-80 tested at Museumstoomtram

In week 36, the BRDE-80 shunting locomotive had several test drives at Museumstoomtram Hoorn – Medemblik. After this the locomotive was transported to the InnoTrans in Berlin, to be shown to the general public on behalf of Bemo Rail. And with success!

Largest transport from the history of Bemo

Tuesday morning 7 August is the day: the biggest transport from the history of Bemo Rail is a fact!

The spectacle attracts dozens of interested people. They are present on Tuesday morning to see how shunting locomotive ‘Tata Steel 331’ at Bemo Rail is being lifted on a 36-meter long low loader trailer, to take a complicated route to Tata Steel IJmuiden. At 10.25 am the elaborately prepared convoy leaves with two drivers and five road attendants from the factory site at the Debbemeerweg to leave Warmenhuizen via the east.

The seven members of Mammoet’s transport team are well prepared and certainly do not speak of a routine job: “We do not do this kind of trips every day. Weeks of preparation have preceded.”
Without any problems, the convoy finally arrives at Tata Steel.

Bemo BRD130 for OCI Europoort

After a successful construction and successful delivery in Europoort, the new Bemo BRD130 for OCI Europoort has recently been delivered. The locomotive will take care of the shunting work for both its own OCI work and also for the ETT terminal, which uses the same access tracks. Thanks to the adjustable crawling speed, OCI makes it possible to weigh the wagons on the weighbridge while driving. Furthermore, the locomotive is also equipped with Tag readers that prevents unauthorized operation. And the locomotive is just like the new Bemo locomotive at Yara in the beautiful orange-gray color combination. The locomotive again has the characteristic good accessibility for operators, maintenance engineers and the addition of fuel.

The locomotive is being let to OCI for 10 years, including maintenance and is therefore added to our current rental fleet.



APM Med2 Port Tangier – Morocco

More than 1 year ago, Bemo Rail started the construction of the new APM terminal, Med2 Port in Tangier, Morocco. Commissioned by Willemen, we build ARMG rails and STS rails. Soon we will start the 2nd phase (there are 3 in total) of this prestige project. In consultation with our client, Bemo Rail has developed a unique rail system for the ARMG cranes for this terminal.

2 locomotives for Metro depot in Middle East

Last year, Bemo received the order for the delivery of 2 BRDE80 shunting locomotives. The locomotives will be built for work on a Metro depot in the Middle East. There they will take care of the shunting work on the depot itself, but if necessary also on the line. They can drive both solo and double-traction, so they also have sufficient pulling power to drive with a trailer load against slopes. The 2-axle locomotives are equipped with a diesel electric AC / AC drive and on the metro line itself they can drive up to 50 km/h.

The 1st of the two locomotives will be ready for shipment in mid-June and the second will be exhibited at the Innotrans trade fair in Berlin from 17 to 23 September.

BMW Mexico

Bemo Rail started a project at the construction site of BMW Group in San Luis Potosí, Mexico. The work involves the installation of three lengths of 61 meters of rail for three stacker cranes; rail type MRS87a discontinuous supports on concrete. The tracks are mounted at the location of the storage depot of the cars. The work is expected to be completed in week 17.

ISR tunnel CERN

Bemo Rail is currently working in the ISR tunnel of CERN, located near Geneva.
CERN is a European organization that conducts nuclear research into elementary particles.
In this underground tunnel, Bemo replaces 240 meters of A65 curved tracks.

Guided tours students

On Monday 26 March 2 groups 8 from primary school de Doorbraak in Warmenhuizen visited Bemo Rail. The children walked enthusiastically through the workshop and through various offices. Interesting stories from the practice were more than welcome for them for the benefit of their ‘Tough Professions’ project. Working at Bemo Rail seemed to be tough and fascinating for most. So who knows, we’ll see them again when they grow up later … They’re welcome!


Road-rail vehicle for Middle East

After a successful construction last Thursday and Friday the FAT for the new Bemo KRE15RCRV passed.

The KRE15RCRV is electrically powered and equipped with batteries for the power supply. It does not produce exhaust gas and noise emissions. During the day the locomotive is in use and at night the batteries are recharged. He can drive both on the track and on the road. This makes it easy to bypass long stretches of track and, for example, drive to another place in a workshop / depot across the road. The locomotive will take care of the shunting work at a factory in the Middle East where new wagons are built and will replace an old locomotive. Basically he will move the hulls from the paint shop to the end assembly department.

By this choice, the customer will save a lot on fuel consumption, maintenance and emissions.
