Service Tram cabin for 80 people plus load transport

16. March 2021

On behalf of Garaventa AG, Calag produced a new service tram cabin for the transport cableway of the FM mine of the operator PT Freeport Indonesia. The special cabin is designed for the harsh conditions of the mine and will be used in future for the safe transport of workers and materials. It offers space for a maximum of 80 workers with simultaneous load transport, which is suspended under the cabin. This is already the third cabin of this type for PT Freeport Indonesia. The first two cabins were manufactured by Gangloff Cabins AG in Bern, but this cabin is the first to be completely manufactured by Calag and assembled in Langenthal.

The Service Tram cabin is optimally designed for the rough conditions in opencast mining. Thus, electrical control elements were deliberately dispensed with completely. The sliding side doors on the outside can be opened manually and are protected against opening during the journey by means of a retaining latch and a chain. As an emergency exit, the cabin has an exit hatch in the roof which can be reached via a ladder permanently installed in the roof space. The floor is made of grooved aluminium floor planks and the walls are lined with warted sheet metal up to belt height to protect the cabin from dirt and wear by the miners. The cabin has safety glass windows all around. On the front side, these are mounted as hinged windows and can be opened manually for better ventilation of the cabin.

Die Service Tram Kabine bietet Platz für bis zu 80 Personen plus Lasttransport.
Die seitlichen Schiebetüren sind manuell zu öffnen und mittels eines Überwurfriegels und einer Kette gegen ein Öffnen während der Fahrt geschützt.
Als Notausstieg verfügt die Kabine über eine Ausstiegsluke im Dach, welche über eine fest im Dachraum verbaute Leiter zu erreichen ist.
Als Experte für den Kabinen- und Leichtmetallbau baut das erfahrene Calag-Team Kabinen nach Kundenwunsch her.
Die Kabine verfügt rundum über Fenster aus Sicherheitsglas. Stirnseitig sind diese als Ausstellfenster montiert.
