Two new supply substations in Chomutov and Most will ensure safer and more reliable railway operation

20.10.2016

Chomutov, 20 October 2016 – Správa železniční dopravní cesty (the Railway Infrastructure Administration) today officially completed the construction of supply substations (SST) Chomutov and Most. The new substations are crucial to ensure safety and reliable operation on appropriate sections. The necessity of completion of these structures resulted mainly from the growth in demand for energy supply of railway lines.





“Individual stations were before reconstruction equipped mostly with outdated technology and their technical condition did not correspond to European parameters and standards. New substations will ensure a reliable supply of electricity and in addition will also increase traffic safety, because in case of emergency, they will allow partial supply of lines that are not directly adjacent to the individual substations,”
said RIA CEO, Paul Surý.

The subject of both projects was the reconstruction of individual technological equipment of the substations and SST operational buildings, low-voltage distribution, lighting and sewerage. The construction also included a modification driveways, paved areas and laying of communication cables.

Complete reconstruction and modernisation of buildings has contributed primarily to the increase in SST performance with respect to the growing demands for energy supply of railway lines. Following the implementation of the projects, demands for increased reliability of rail transport in the respective sections under all circumstances will be also met, whether in terms of increased traffic, adverse weather conditions or power outages at neighbouring supply stations.
