Aarhus is home to Denmark’s first light rail line in 2017, which will connect Aarhus, Grenaa, Odder and in between closer together. Rosenfelt & West Engineering (RWE) has supplied 24 level crossings along with their subcontractor AURA and handed his share of the Odder-track two weeks ahead of time.
Rosenfelt & West Engineering has been responsible for the immunisation of 24 BUES 2000 level crossings at the light rail in Aarhus. An immunisation is made in order to protect people and equipment from electrical shock from overhead lines. RWE has reconstructed the cabins at the level crossings, so that they are immunised. Besides that, the cabins have been updated with new turn on / off systems and new technology in train tracking, which means that through loops on the rails, the level crossing recognises incoming trains.
RWE has worked assiduously to develop a solution to the cabins and design and validate. During the process, RWE received orders for several new level crossings, one of which was very special in the sense that it covers eight tracks in Aarhus center. The last few weeks RWE’s employees determinedly worked hard to finish the testing of the 15 level crossings for the Odder-track where five installations per week were tested.
The result was that RWE could deliver their part of the Odder-track two weeks ahead of time. The good cooperation between Aarhus Light Rail, Aura and RWE has made it possible to deliver on time and the objective for the Grenaa-track is the same.
Mogens Olsen, project manager at RWE, explains: "At RWE we do everything possible to deliver the right quality and quantity at the right time – which has been successful in the cooperation with Aarhus Light Rail and Aura" and further explains that with good and constructive work Rosenfelt & West Engineering A/S has managed to achieve its objectives on time so the people of Aarhus and others may soon benefit from Denmark’s first light rail.
