The company plans, constructs and maintains overhead line systems for local and intercity transport.  
SPL Powerlines Nederland plans and erects catenary systems for tram lines, local city trains and industrial railways, according to the very latest standards. A modern city without electrically powered public transport is unthinkable. Catenary systems have become part of a city’s identity and enable people to live their lives on a day-to-day basis. The corresponding power supply system, or especially customised combination of technologies, is constructed in complete accordance with the requirements of the customer, whether it’s a single or double catenary system, overhead contact line, third rail or ceiling-mounted conductor rail system. Our installation engineers are all-rounders with in-depth knowledge of the specific system types and architectures. They are trained to find the most suitable solutions, however complex the challenge – be it at large junctions, in depots or railway stations.  
The trolley-bus is a means of public transport with a long history. By the mid-20th century it had become widespread in European cities as it was not dependant on the existence of tracks. As municipalities increase efforts to become more environmentally friendly, modern trolley-buses with electric motors are in increasing demand. They are healthier for the environment than equivalent diesel-powered vehicles and their positive acceleration capacities allow them to be used in areas with steep inclines. SPL Powerlines Nederland erects complete catenary systems for trolley-buses. When implementing catenary systems each city has its own peculiarities, particularly of a structural-architectural nature (statics etc.), all of which have to be taken into consideration.
