Experience the Wonder of Wuppertal Schwebebahn Monorail, located in Wuppertal, Germany!
Are you ready for a unique and exhilarating transportation experience? Look no further than the iconic Wuppertal Schwebebahn Monorail, a true engineering marvel that has been captivating visitors and locals alike since its opening in 1901. PROSE was involved in the development twice.
The first time around, PROSE assumed the crucial role of overseeing the complete engineering of the primary mechanical components of the vehicle, namely the car body and the bogie. Additionally, we took charge of project management, ensuring efficient coordination throughout the process as well as defining and supervising the component tests and supporting vehicle authorization.
The second time around, we tackled a unique challenge: creating an optimized vehicle specifically tailored to their needs. To achieve this, we innovatively designed a vehicle body utilizing aluminum extrusion profiles, successfully overcoming the initial obstacle. The result was a remarkable continuous low floor design, complemented by wide-opening doors, ensuring smooth and efficient passenger flow. Moreover, these new vehicles for the Wuppertal suspension railway prioritize driver comfort, providing an elevated level of satisfaction in their operation.
Given PROSE’s extensive experience in developing mainstream and special projects of all kinds, PROSE’s development team successfully met all expectations. Our deep knowledge and proficiency in working across different cultures have proven to be invaluable assets, playing a fundamental catalyst role in the current manufacture of the vehicles in Austria, Germany and Spain.
