POWERVE for Derailment Investigations – March 2020

Following two derailments recently happened in Italy on Naples-Benevento railway line,

IVM srl has been involved in the derailment investigation, performing both static and dynamic measurements, to fully support the safety authorities.

Phase 1 – Static tests – measuring the vehicle’s vertical wheel force distribution, by using the POWERVE POW4X equipment. The static measurements were accomplished last week, following the EN15654-2 requirements.

Despite the Covid19 lockdown and thanks to the support of EAV (Ente autonomo volturno) technicians, the activity was carried out in total safety.

As soon as possible the dynamic tests will be also performed (Phases 2-3) by installing on board our OCTOPUS system and on the track our SWAN system. The aim is fully monitoring the rolling stock’s running dynamics and the track infrastructure, by analyzing the complex and hidden behaviors of the wheel/rail interaction vibrations.

Keep safe and take care of you and everyone during this hard time!

Here are some pictures of the activity:

POWERVE Demo at DB Cargo Italia – February 2020, Brescia (Italy)

Here we are again! 

We have had very busy months lately but

we are still here to always ensure the best rolling stock balance aimed to improve the safety against derailment in the railway industry!

Last week IVM srl performed a very interesting demonstration at DB Cargo Italia to show them 

the performances of our POWERVE POW4X and to test the balance status of their 4-axle wagon.

We thank the whole team of technicians for the friendliness and helpfulness.

Here are some photos of the demonstration:
