August 2011: The homologation process of the measuring wheelset System VÚKV 3 in Germany was successfully crowned. The wheelset was tested on the unique calibration stand of VÚKV a. s. and consequently verified by functional tests – e. g. on the bogie of VÚKV a. s. measuring car till 200 km/h, during the tests of Paris Metro vehicles, on the freight wagon bogie TVP 2007 or during the approval process of Škoda 109E locomotive. The VÚKV a. s. measuring system worked with high reliability almost without any failures. VÚKV a. s. supported various rail vehicle producers during the approval process of their products – example Lithuania: the process was successfully crowned not only in case of double deck EMU’s class 575 (Škoda Vagónka) but also in case of EM 140 measuring vehicle (Plasser & Theurer). The approval process for significant German customer starts actually. The type tests of various freight wagons were carried out for both Czech and foreign customers (e. g. LEGIOS Louny, Tatravagónka Poprad, Ɖuro Ɖaković, Feldbinder Spezialfahrzeuge) in 2011. The integral part of the type tests are also brake tests – stationary and on the run (uncoupling tests) according to UIC 544-1, TSI freight wagons and V-BKS (K) guideline for various load conditions – empty, partially loaded (changeover weight) and full loaded. Part of these tests will be carried out on the IK testing track at Źmigród, Poland. Series of aerodynamic measurements as prescribed by TSI High Speed was carried out by VÚKV a. s. in terms of approval process of Škoda 109E locomotive. The measuring of aerodynamic load on passengers on a platform and on rail workers at the lineside was carried out by a Czech subject for the first time. The measuring of maximum pressure variations in tunnel during the test train passage was carried out in Austria in collaboration with Aeronautic Research and Testing Institute.
