Rejlers heads electrical and automation design for Norway’s longest railway bridge

Rejlers Norway has been commissioned to assist Implenia with electrical and automation design work when the country's longest railway bridge is to be built over Tangenvika. Implenia is the main contractor for the BaneNor project in Stange municipality.

The railway bridge will be slightly more than one kilometre in length and high demands have been placed on the environment and sustainability to ensure the least possible impact on the environment in and around Mjøsa. The project will be environmentally certified according to BREEAM Infrastructure by Norconsult, which is the main consultant. Rejlers Norway will plan the electrical and automation facilities in the deck and shipping lane below. The detailed design to be carried out will be performed on a model basis.

"We are delighted to have been selected to provide our services and advice in connection with the construction of the longest railway bridge in Norway. We will work together with Implenia and Norconsult to ensure that this project is a true success that delivers more eco-friendly freight traffic and reduces travel time between Oslo and Hamar. I am proud that we have been once again chosen as a partner for an Implenia project," says Ragnar Holtan, CEO of Rejlers division Omega Holtan.

Omega Holtan is part of Rejlers in Norway and offers extensive experiences in consultancy and design work for infrastructure projects that include building or refurbishment works.

The dualling of the line between Hamar and Oslo will allow trains to run at speeds of up to 250 km/h, which means additional departures, shorter journey times and enhanced freight capacity. The project is scheduled for completion in 2027.
