Rail vehicles are among the safest and most sustainable means of transport worldwide. The many advantages that rail already offers in terms of environmental friendliness and efficiency must be further expanded in the coming years. In this way, it can play a central role in the future in a digital, low-emission and ultimately efficient interconnection of the various modes of transport. In this context, Liebherr as a renowned supplier of innovative technologies and railway-proven solutions will continue to make an important contribution to making the rail transport sector even more sustainable and attractive in the future.

For decades, Liebherr products and technologies have been helping to drive progress in the rail industry. The trade fair motto for this year's InnoTrans points to this: "Always on track for progress". At the international exhibition of the railway industry in Berlin, the company will be presenting products and technologies from three product segments that revolve around the subject of rail: Firstly, innovative solutions for rail vehicles from the fields of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning technology, electronics and hydraulic actuation systems. Among them is a world premiere: the air-free brake actuator.

In addition, Liebherr will be presenting a representative of its new generation of railroad excavators from the construction machinery sector. The company has been producing powerful and high-quality railroad excavators since 1967. These can be used both on the road and in rail transport. There they carry out, for example, work related to the maintenance or renewal of rail systems as well as the laying of track infrastructures.

In the components product segment, the company is presenting the horizontal version of the D966H engine with 13 litres displacement, which was specially developed for railcars. This combustion engine, which is being presented in its diesel version, is HVO-capable. Currently, the engine technology is being further developed for use with hydrogen.

The products and technologies primarily contribute to improving efficiency and reducing emissions. Through the further development of technologies and components, in the future, the good environmental balance of rail transport and reliability can be further increased and maintenance costs reduced.
