High output renewal trains are well known in the track world for renewing rails, sleepers or ballast with high efficiency. Why not replicate this approach for catenary work? This is the specification that has been proposed in France by SNCF Réseau to renew almost 16,000 km of electrified track. After long months of design and manufacture in cooperation with Colas Rail and TSO Catenaries, the first GEISMAR SRC fast catenary suite is at work every night on the 25,000-volt network. In 2021, a second rapid catenary suite will operate on the 1,500-volt network. Unrivalled performance in catenary renewal has already been achieved.
