“Enormous sums are being invested in infrastructure both in Sweden and the rest of Europe,” says Michel Nordeman, Works Manager at Strukton region Stockholm.
Strukton Rail currently has operations in six European countries and a total of 3,500 employees. In Sweden there are 550 employees, and one of the major projects is the much-discussed City Line. Strukton’s brief is to build six kilometres of double-track railway through central Stockholm, and the project is due to begin very soon.
“Preparations are under way and we will have access to the tunnel in May next year,” says Nordeman.
The track work will be finished by 2016 and services will start running on the new route in 2017.
At Elmia Nordic Rail, Strukton wants to show its customers the strength and breadth it can offer in the railway sector, including the new POSS monitoring system, which aims to prevent service stoppages by issuing an alarm before a fault becomes a problem.
“The system has different alarm levels and could secure the traffic on our railways in the future,” says Kurt Eriksson, tender manager at Strukton.
