Reference project for heavy machinery: Immediate action: passage renewal in Lengenwang/Bavaria

As the name suggests, taking immediate measures requires prompt action. For DB Netz AG, HERING provided a track-bound slewing crane and a work train locomotive with two rail wagons as part of a passage renewal. In addition, a logistical concept has been drawn up to ensure that the work is carried out.

Further details can be found on the construction panel.
