The bogie storage units are a welding structure, made of structural steels (Material S235). In the support areas of the bogie frames rubber plates are considered in order to realize a safe load support of the bogies when stored on top of each other. The storage will be up to three bogies (2 motor bogie and 1 trailer bogie).
The bogie storages are designed in order to give a proper support of bogies and its subcomponents inside the storage stands.
For this, the bogies must be lifted by the overhead crane by chains/Slings onto the storage stand until they are safely and properly positioned. Once this is done, the chain/slings used for lifting the bogie onto the storage stand needs to be removed again.
The load is managed just by the inner part of the supports. The outer part may be used for the correct positioning of the bogie on the stand. The lowest part of the bogie storage can support 13,5 tons (2 motor bogie and 1 trailer bogie).
