    July 3, 2007 -- Motorists on Highway 140 late Tuesday morning saw what will become a fairly common sight. ITS Rail moved out the first completed locomotives bound for Algeria late Tuesday morning and into the afternoon.

    There will be more to come. Four more engines are expected to be completed in August. In total, ITS Rail is building 24 engines as part of its Algerian contract.

    Pfaff-Silberblau mobile lifting jack systems to be installed in SNTF depots

    Saturday 11 August 2007 -- Three track-mounted mobile lifting jack systems are being supplied to Algeria’s national railway for installation in the depots under construction at Mecheria and Béchar.

    Each consist of four jacks with individual capacities of 20, 25 and 35 tonnes and a lifting height extending up to 2 000 mm, giving the capability of lifting 140 tonnes 2 m off the ground. Inspection and testing of the system was carried out at Pfaff-Silberblau’s factory in Germany for the customer, French firm TSO, and the Algerian end-user SNTF. Final commissioning of the jacks is scheduled to take place this summer.

    Den Haag public transport operator HTM has already begun using custom-made under-floor lifting jacks supplied by Pfaff-Silberblau. Two in-floor lifting systems with four platforms and 12 moveable 10 tonne capacity lifting jacks can be quickly adapted to suit different vehicle types and lengths, allowing bogies to be changed efficiently with the help of in-floor supports. The lifting jacks are designed to be used in conjunction with a mobile wheel lathe, and a lighting system is built into each of the lift beams to provide lighting while work is being undertaken underneath the vehicles.
