Denmark’s first light rail with be launched in Aarhus in 2017, which is the also the year that marks Aarhus’ tenure as appointed European Capital of Culture.

Supeo is set to deliver to a Sitra Document and HR/security management solution that will help manage the entire spectrum of compliance and security management, including process control, quality assurance, delivery management and safety reports to the Danish Transport and Construction Agency.

Supeo CEO and founder Troels Hannecke comments: "We are very excited of having Aarhus Letbane as a new customer, since they are in the final stages of establishing the first light rail track in Denmark, and we have a chance to help them build their safety management from the bottom up in close cooperation with their organisation and Martin Møller-Lassen, CSO.

"This is a very interesting project because Aarhus Letbane is in the rare position of getting to establish a brand new rail operation without any residue from old or outdated systems, but can instead build the operation using experience and know-how."

Aarhus Letbane CSO Martin Møller-Lassen comments: "We chose Supeo, because we did not want to go out and invent a new system from scratch. That is not what we were put in this world to do. We wanted something that we knew or knew somebody who had good experiences with it. Generally, our philosophy for Aarhus Letbane is not to go out and invent everything from scratch but to use existing product and knowledge.

"We find that with Supeo there is a good understanding of our business and for how things work in practice too. And our expectations for the collaboration with Supeo is that it will be good! That Supeo will continue to listen to our needs."

The new light rail will connect existing rail lines by a new 12-kilometre rail through the city of Aarhus.

When completed, it will be 110km of light rail uniting the greater Aarhus area. The new light rail will have 50 train stations, 17 of which will be built on the new stretch of rail line. The expectations are that the establishment of a light rail to complement the current public transportation infrastructure, lifting Aarhus from a city to a metropolis.
