A privately financed railway project in the USA leads to a small traffic-technical revolution in Florida.
The first high-speed train line in the USA is to build in the Sunshine State.
Brightline unveiled the first locomotives and wagons for Brightline Intercity-line on June 7th, 2016. This is a new express train. It is planned that this train will transport rail travelers between Miami and Palm Beach in the middle of the next year.
In implementing the project, Brightline relies on German technology.
The subsidiary of the Siemens company in Sacramento supplies the initial equipment in form of train sets, which will be used on this route.
We were also involved in this ambitious and forward-looking project.
Our company delivered the whole welding equipment and all devices, which were required for the manufacture of the rail vehicle car body shell of Brightline Intercity.
A challenging task from the concept to the product which all involved parties demanded. But the result was a great success.
With the Brightline project, the company All Aboard Florida hopes to bring 700,000 commuters as a passenger from the road into the train. Indirectly, the train operator company thus contributes to the protection of the environment and contributes to the relief of traffic on the roads.
