The lifting jacks are mobile and can be moved around the depot to accomodate different train configurations.

Load ratings for the lifting jacks are from 8 - 60 tons per jack.
Lifting plants

Lifting plants (subfloor) facilitate the lifting of multiple train sections. The complete lifting plant is placed below the workshop floor, and when lowered, there is an unobstructed working and traffic area.

The lifting plant is monitored and controlled via a redundant PLC. It ensures absolutely synchronised motions of all lifting jacks. Within milliseconds the PLC corrects any irregularity. This ensures a safety standard which is unsurpassed by any other system.
