Plastwil De Bonde Becomes Railway Partner of Nevomo Company


Nevomo has signed a cooperation agreement with Plastwil and Plastwil de Bonte, specializing in the production of the highest quality prestressed concrete sleepers and rail fastening systems. The sleepers and fastenings provided by the two companies will be used to build a full-scale magrail technology test track. Through this collaboration, Nevomo will build a 750-metre-long course, which will be the longest course for passive magnetic levitation tests in Europe.

Belgian company De Bonte has 30 years of experience in the production of prestressed concrete sleepers, while Polish Plastwil has been a leading manufacturer of sleeper rail fastening systems for over 35 years. Both the prestressed concrete sleepers and their fastening systems will be part of a full-scale test line for magrail technology, the next generation of high-speed railways where vehicles will travel at speeds of up to 550 km/h. The track will be built in the commune of Nowa Sarzyna in the Podkarpackie Voivodeship in Poland. Construction will begin in the second half of this year.

As part of the deal, Plastwil De Bonte became Nevomo's Line Partner and joins a group of other companies currently supporting the development of magnetic rail, including IDOM, CIECH Sarzyna, Transfer Multisort Electronics or the Railway Institute.

The support of Plastwil, which has a rich and international experience as a leading manufacturer of rail technology components, is very important to us. This will enable further steps towards full-scale testing of magrail technology. – says Lukasz Mielczarek, Nevomo co-founder and Director of Infrastructure.

– As an innovation-driven company, we draw on our many years of experience as a manufacturer of railway infrastructure components and are already considering what will be required for railway development in the coming years. Collaboration with Nevomo fits perfectly with our vision of the future where we create railway solutions for the next 20, 30 or even 50 years. Plastwil CEO Izabella Walkowska believes that railways will be the preferred mode of transport in the context of reducing human impact on the environment and that the development of technologies such as hyperloop will bring us closer to revival.
