THE TRAMWAY OF ORLEANS IS BEING REFURBISHED
After 18 years of operation, the company in charge of infrastructure maintenance, KEOLIS, has completed the rehabilitation of the catenary suspension elements : anchoring slings, cantilever stays, delta suspensions were replaced. A stainless steel solution developed by Galland was preferred to the earlier model made of synthetic rope.
Already installed on many tramway lines in France and abroad, this solution includes stainless steel wire with rod insulator and crimped clevis ends; these components provide better resistance to UV and avoid the problem of elongation of synthetic cables due either to temperature variations or their elasticity.
All suspension elements are made to length according to the installation drawings and are pre-assembled at the factory, providing an obvious advantage in time savings during the on-site installation.
