Hong Kong coup for Mechan

Mechan, the Sheffield-based depot equipment manufacturer has fitted a bogie press at MTR’s Pat Heung depot in Hong Kong, to complement the one installed in the Siu Ho Wan depot in 1999.

The new press will enable bogies serviced at Pat Heung, which serves the MTR West Rail line, to undergo suspension
checks and height adjustments after a rebuild.

Says Richard Carr, Mechan’s managing director, ‘Associated Engineers is one of our newest distributors and we are very pleased the firm has secured such a key order for us with MTR.

‘Whilst various upgrades have improved the usability and performance of our bogie presses in the decade or so since the last installation, the two pieces of equipment are still recognisably the same and offer equal build quality and longevity.

‘It is heartening to see our older press still operating so reliably on this busy rail network.’
