Rhomberg Rail

Railway Infrastructure Construction

Rhomberg Rail, part of the Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group, is a prime contractor and specialist consultancy covering all types of infrastructure concerning railways across the world. Its expertise ranges from railway construction (slab track or ballast track), electrification and machinery to safety and temporary infrastructure. Rhomberg Rail has years of experience in major international projects, which makes us a natural first choice when looking for a competent contractor or partner.

Project management, design and consulting

Rhomberg Rail develops the project scope, performs the design, the planning and prepares everything for its customers in detail, as requested and on time. It makes the most complex railway projects a reality. If you need a competent consultant or contractor for discipline-specific solutions, material logistics and transport on and to site, supply chain management or any other rail-related problem solving – Rhomberg’s the right choice.

Slab track (ballastless track)

For ultimate accuracy, reliability, versatility and safety in track construction, Rhomberg Rail has developed its own slab track system, IVES. But due to the wide range of experience gained worldwide in slab track construction, the company frequently also uses other approved slab track systems, such as Rheda, base plates, rubber boots, etc. Rhomberg has proudly installed more than 600km of slab track thus far across Europe, which proves its natural excellence.

Ballast track and mechanised infrastructure maintenance

Rhomberg’s mechanised machine park for track construction and maintenance represents the latest state-of-the-art technology, and is continuously being modernised. Its extensive fleet is flexible and can be deployed in any given situation.
