Four new traction substations in Regions Pardubice and Vysočina will ensure safer and more reliable operation on railway lines

22.09.2015

Ústí nad Orlicí 22 September 2015 – Today, the Railway Infrastructure Administration festively completed the construction of traction substations Kerhartice, Golčův Jeníkov, Ostrov nad Oslavou and Havlíčkův Brod. The new converter stations are crucial for ensuring safety and reliable operation on the respective line sections. The necessity to implement these constructions resulted especially from increasing requirements for power feeding of railway lines.

 

 

 

”The reconstructed buildings of traction converter stations and distribution stations were built more than 50 years ago, which is reflected in their technical state. The new traction converter stations will ensure a reliable power source, moreover they will increase railway operation safety as they can also ensure partial power feeding of lines not directly adjacent to then in case of emergency“,  says Mr. Pavel Surý, Director General of the Railway Infrastructure Administration.

The object of all four projects is a reconstruction of separate technological equipment at traction substations and service buildings, area low tension service lines, lighting and drainage. A part of the constructions includes also an adaptation of access roads, strengthened surfaces and laying communication cables.

Complete reconstruction and modernisation of these buildings and installations contributes especially to increasing the traction substations’ output due to higher requirements for power feeding of railway lines. The projects’ implementation also complies with demand for increased reliability of railway transport in the given line sections in any circumstances, be it more intense operation, unfavourable climate conditions or failures of neighbouring traction substations.

Total costs of the construction designated as Increasing traction output of traction substation Golčův Jeníkov amount to 186,992,234 CZK (VAT excluded). The project was co-financed by the European Union from its Cohesion Fund under the Operational Programme Transport up to an amount of 139,855,391 CZK.
