Public invitation to tender RRI 2 – funding

One-piece rail brake disc for passenger transport – monobloc brake disc

In May 2018, Kovis has applied for the public invitation to tender »Incentives for Research Development Projects«(RRI2) at the Ministry of Economic Development and Technology. We have registered the project “one-piece rail brake disc for passenger transport” or monobloc brake disc.

Our application has been confirmed as positive in the context of the funding available for the Cohesion Region of Eastern Slovenia. More at

The main objective of the proposed action is to prepare a technical solution – monobloc brake disk or one-piece rail brake disk for passenger transport, as this is a worldwide innovation in railway braking systems. This innovative solution will deliver the planned impact  – higher efficiency, smaller dimension, increased safety, longer lifetime and higher cost efficiency of passenger trains.

“The investment is co-financed by the Republic of Slovenia and the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund.”
