Topping-out.

Concrete for locomotives.

03.06.2016 - Today the topping-out ceremony was held for the construction of a new production and logistics centre for locomotives. Six production halls and an industrial hall were constructed for the company Vossloh Locomotives on an approximately 18,000 m² site using prefabricated reinforced concrete.

From next year, locomotives will be manufactured at the "Business Campus Kiel" business park in Suchsdorf using the most modern methods. Up to 40 locomotives per year will be delivered from the production halls. With optimised building processes and a new platform concept, the time required to build a loco will be reduced from today’s 18 months to six months.
