Announced online on October 1st, Kässbohrer has proudly taken the second place in the category “Body” with first and only 45 ft. Coil Swap Body K.SWAU CC.
K.SWAU CC presents an integrated coil well and is developed for intermodal coil transport all made possible by its innovative chassis design with total capacity of 30 tons. The tests performed during the development have proven safer swap designs and resulting design changes are now the technical requirements for UIC 592/IRS 50592 and IRS 50596-5 certification mandatory for all swap bodies.
Kaessbohrer 45ft swap body with integrated coil well K.SWAU.CC / 45 is the first ever and only 45ft coil swap vehicle and only certified 45 ft swap body for intermodal coil transport.

Up until K.SWAU.CC/45, coil transport via swap bodies was realized by general cargo swaps leading to accidents due to structural failure. K.SWAU.CC/45’s main development purpose was to overcome these safety issues. During its development to the highest safety standards, K.SWAU.CC/45 not only became the one and only coil certified swap body with UIC 592/IRS 50592 by International Railway solution ( IRS); the design changes as the result of the safety test performed are now part of the technical requirements for UIC 592/IRS 50592 and IRS 50596-5 certification and binds any new swap body to be produced.
