Final event for the EU project „SELF PROP RAIL“

At the headquarters of RZV Ltd., the consortium of the project SELF PROP RAIL will present the project as well as demonstrate how the self-propelled bulk carriage functions

The final event for the project „SELF PROP RAIL“, which is co-financed by the European Union via the CIP Eco-Innovation Initiative, will be held on Thursday, 01.09.2016 at the headquarters of RZV Ltd.

The purpose of the project is to develop and commercialize the main innovation of RZV Ltd: the Self-propelled bulk carriage.


SELF PROP RAIL brings to the market the self-propelled bulk carriage designed for resource-efficient (re)construction of railway infrastructure.

SELF PROP RAIL contributes to enhancing resource-efficient (re)construction of railway infrastructure. The self-propelled bulk carriage does not need a locomotive for shuffling and moving during cargo unloading processes and at the same time can discharge required amounts of construction materials precisely where needed.

The carriage saves energy, human resources and shortens the time of transportation and unloading. It is cost and time efficient, it enables point-to-point transportation, and there is no need for cost-intensive cargo manipulation machinery for freight handling or time-intensive coupling and reloading processe.

The partners have expertise in key aspects of the project: technical solutions, testing, life-cycle analysis, marketing and project management. The project has been implemented in Croatia and its neighbouring countries, and the entire EU-28 is considered as the potential market.
