JG3754, JG3757 and JG3859 Insulators

Thanks to their experience in the crimping of insulators, the GALLAND company has added three new insulators to its range. These new insulators make it possible to adapt to and be installed easily on existing and new tramway networks. These composite insulators, with stainless steel fastenings, meet the requirements of the NF EN 50119-2020-04 standards.

Galland at the SIFER Trade Fair : success all along the line !

The Modane shield

Some historical background :

In 2014 the public French-Italian promoter “Tunnel Euralpin Lyon Turin” (TELT) was given the responsibility of the construction of the trans-alpine rail link Lyon-Turin. The maintenance workshop Fret located in St Jean de Maurienne had to be relocated for the needs of the project.

In 2017 the FRET management chose the site of Modane because it already had rail installations, service lines, a turntable and a historical rotunda consisting of 14 covered railway lines dating from 1895.

The Modane railway station is an international exchange station where heavy trains weighing up to 1600 tons circulate. At least six different railway companies pass through there as well.

Nicknamed “La Crevette” (the prawn) Dominique is part of the Galland legend : after 37 years of experience and versatility, he knows how to assemble tensioning devices as well as insulators practically blindfolded.


The swiveling head steady arm… is being transformed

For reasons of electrical standards our material has to respect geometrical constraints in order to guarantee the safety regulations that must be observed. Our tramway network clients informed us and wanted to add the possibility of a multi-action adjustment tool. A requirement of the client that Galland has taken into account and is changing and transforming their swiveling head steady arm!


The OMEGA assembly : clamp and support….easy to regulate, easy to adapt !
