HIGH-TECH INFRASTRUCTURE IN THE FAR NORTH SPL Powerlines Sweden offers a complete service for catenary systems for mass transit and mainline transport systems – from design and erection all the way through to maintenance. By installing technically advanced systems, the company is able to guarantee that railway operations remain uninterrupted and economic, no matter whether it is working on a standard or high-speed line, on a historic narrow gauge railway, or on the power supply for a railway in the far North near the polar circle. SPL Powerlines Sweden stands for detailed design, on-time completion, proficient installation, comprehensive documentation and reliable service.
STANDARD & HIGH-SPEED FOR AC/DC Higher speeds, shorter intervals and the subsequently increasing power requirements – catenary systems for long distance routes have to meet today’s highest demands. The company plans and realizes new catenary projects as well as expansions, modernizations and maintenance of existing AC/DC systems. In the future, an increasing number of projects in Eastern Europe as well as in the Middle East and Far East will be realized in cooperation with international partners.
SAFE, RELIABLE & ECONOMICAL Conductor rails – also known as “third rails” – are a key element in ensuring maximum mobility at peak times on undergrounds, metro systems and metropolitan railways. Their function is to transmit electrical energy safely and reliably to the rail vehicles. These conductor rails are located in the immediate vicinity of the tracks. Like a dense network of arteries running alongside each track, they supply the trains with electricity via an extra heavy-duty conductor. Depending on the requirements of the line, the current may be fed to the train in one of three different ways: from below, from above, or from the side. The Powerlines Group’s third rail is designed as a flexible modular system. Individual optimally matched components and modules are assembled depending on the track conditions and requirements. Experienced engineers from SPL Powerlines Sweden develop universal, flexible concepts – always mindful of their economic operation.
