Crane track renovation at Tata Steel

A project completed with success! This month we carried out a crane track renovation at Tata steel in IJmuiden during a standstill.

We have renovated a crane track at height on behalf of Tata Steel IJmuiden. The crane track is used by a semi-gantry crane that transports steel plates over the crane track. The track is part of the production process at the Oxysteel factory 2. The crane track construction was severely worn-out over a length of 115 meters and needed to be renovated. The work was carried out, in ongoing shifts during a shutdown of 72 hours.

Gerben Fidder, Project Manager Rail Technology: “The complexity of a renovation like this one is that you have to determine in advance, this is necessary to make sure that all equipment and materials are present. Good coordination with the customer, but also an on time reminder of the purchased materials, the preliminary testing of the equipment and the availability of extra machines is necessary. The most important is that the customer’s wishes are correctly translated into practice. Although we are well prepared, unforeseen things always come up during a renovation. It must be kept in mind that the planned time can’t be delayed. It was again an interesting challenge! We are happy and proud that all work has been carried out and delivered, with the intended quality and within the planned timeframe.”

We take care of everything from start to finish
Unique at Bemo Rail is that thanks to our in-house engineering department, our own workshop and 50 years of experience, we can take care of the entire process from start to finish for our customers. For this project for Tata Steel, we made the production drawings ourselves, the rails were milled and the rail clamps were produced in our own workshop in Warmenhuizen.

In the execution, our own staff carried out the steel construction renovation. The conservation work was carried out by certified suppliers of which Bemo has hired the services.

In addition to the right equipment, Bemo Rail has an adequate and trained professional staff who deliver your project within the set quality requirements. After all, Bemo rail has been providing this for its customers for 50 years. Bemo has obtained various certifications to deliver qualified work to the customer. These are: VCA **, EN1090 EXC-2, DIN and ISO 9001: 2015, and ISO 3834-2.

Third and last GE locomotive on transport to Tata

On Thursday 28 February, the third and final GE locomotive was transported to Tata Steel IJmuiden.
It involved an impressive transport of no less than 36 meters, with a 95 ton locomotive.

Just like the previous two, this locomotive has also been restored and modernized in collaboration with Tata Steel.
The locomotive is equipped with new clean and quieter diesel engines, which meet the most recent climate requirements of the EU.
