The City Council of Goteborg - Sweden's second most important city, has selected the local company Rejlers as one of the four companies to supply engineering services for the municipal tramway. The activities are limited to the railway tracks and the platform.
The contract for this project, which includes the design of the layout for the urban railway, was obtained in close collaboration with the consultant Inse Rail. In the words of Niklas Mårtensson, head of Business and Infrastructure Projects at Rejlers, “the Spanish firm has extensive experience in light rail projects in Spain as well as in other parts of the world'.
To date, according to the company in a press release, the Swedish engineering firm has maintained close ties with Goteborg, with this collaboration increasing recently thanks to the large number of construction and remodeling works that the city is carrying out in relation to its tramway. This infrastructure, covering 150 kilometers, is Scandinavia's most important tramway network.
The agreement was signed for two years, with the possibility of extending it for two more years.
The tasks assigned to Inse Rail and Rejlers include feasibility studies, project planning, research and evaluation of the worksite conditions, ownership plans, preparation of documents concerning the tendering process, construction, and contracting, as well as technical questions in regard to the route and platforms.
Rejlers is one of the companies in the area of engineering and industrial consulting in the Nordic region. Inse Rail has more than 20 years of highly specialized experience in the railway sector, and specifically, in railway installations and systems. The company carries out its activities in the railway, industrial, energy, and building construction sectors, covering the different stages of planning, design, construction, and operation of investments.
Some of its more important projects include the upgrading of the signaling systems of Line 5 of Metro de Madrid; the track, EMC and RAMS systems on the California high-speed line; the installations on the Kozhúkhoskaya line of the Moscow metro; and civil protection in the Madrid-Atocha Commuter Rail Station.
