In order to prepare the final commissioning, Missiontests have to be carried out between the 2nd and 9th of February 2017 with the wagons for Eurotunnel, built in Niesky. The Missiontest is an endurance test and consist of 80 uninterrupted and loaded train crossings trough the Channel Tunnel. A truck shuttle was loaded with 32 trucks filled up with water containers to create a realistic test environment. The total mass of each truck during the Missiontest was between 36.1 t and 38.7 t. The Missiontest was divided into two sections: 1. Loading and unloading at the terminal, 2. Return-trip from Coquelles to Folkestone with loaded wagons through the Channel Tunnel.
