The railway transportation network which is become quite important in the recent times, in our country and in the world, is forced to make new investments by developing technology. Old trains give place to high-speed trains, in consequence of the railway catenary lines and the rail systems enter into a mass renovation study. During the renovation studies, it is needed the catenary maintenance vehicles which are responded the need fast, with wide working area. Until this time, while it is continuing the needs of these maintenance vehicles which are gained by import for our country, sizeable amount of currency is exported. Thanks to this research, in our country it is manufactured the catenary maintenance vehicle for the first time; and while the national capital is lying within the national borders, it is thought that it will be shaped a new work portfolio.
