Wolfgang R. Fally: “We are very proud to be able to hand over the first milling train for environmentally friendly and economical processing of urban rail systems to our American partners. ROMILL Urban is proof of a fruitful collaboration between track construction specialists. My special thanks therefore also go to Frank Mevert from Schweerbau International and Rolf Herter from Vogel & Plötscher, whose innovative developments make a significant contribution to the performance of this new machine.”

Thomas Blechinger: “Plasser American is looking forward to being able to offer battery-powered, emission-free rail treatment solutions with this high-performance milling machine. In this way, we are making our contribution to the sustainability of the rail system in North America. This battery hybrid technology, which is unique in the world, removes exhaust gases and dust from the construction site, for the benefit of employees working in tunnels and metro systems.”
