Track renewal on the Prenzlau – Seehausen route

As part of track renewal on the route between Prenzlau and Seehausen (north of Berlin), the subgrade was rehabilitated over a distance of approx. 10,000 m. During an 11-day construction period, some 40,000 t PSS material and 30,000 m geotextile were installed and approx. 38,000 t old ballast were recycled and re-installed without leaving the machine. The mean shift progress rate was 460 m. The installed ballast corresponds to BN 918 061, whilst the protective formation layer which was installed conforms to Ril 836. Thanks to its system, which comprises an impact crusher and high-pressure ballast washing system, the PM 200-2 R achieves a recycling rate of up to 70%.
