Recent testing campaigns in Spain

CETEST has carried out the homologation campaigns of two new vehicles in national territory, for which it is in charge of both the execution of the required tests, as well as the management and coordination of the test operation.

The approval campaign for the GREENBRIER car carrier wagon L07A for TRANSFESA was completed during 2019. In addition to the operation management, CETEST has carried out safety verification against derailment at its facilities in Beasain, where wheel unloading tests and measurement of the guiding forces on a 150m flat curve have been carried out. Also, CETEST assessed the dynamic behaviour of the car using an instrumented axis.

In 2020, CETEST performed the homologation campaign for SOCOFER´s catenary maintenance vehicle TMC02 for RATP, also in Spain. The safety verification against derailment in Beasain, Brake performance, noise tests, as well as vibrations and comfort assessment of the vehicle have taken place.
