Rejlers part of cooperation agreement for major railway project in Norway


Rejlers has started a collaboration with the Aas-Jakobsen ViaNova network for the project "New branch Østre linje", which is part of the Østfold Line. Aas-Jakobsen has signed the agreement with the customer Bane NOR, and Rejlers has overall responsibility for the design of electric power. The goal is to ensure a solid and sustainable infrastructure that can handle the traffic needs of the future.


Between Krogstad and Ski, a 5.2 km long double track is planned that will alleviate the current bottleneck and make train traffic more efficient. The project is an important part of the work to improve the railway infrastructure in the region and will contribute to increasing the capacity, reliability and safety of train traffic.


The project covers all relevant disciplines in railway construction, and Rejlers has overall responsibility for railway engineering design, which includes signalling, overhead contact lines and electricity. The goal is to build a strong and sustainable infrastructure that can meet the traffic of the future.


"We will contribute with expertise from several divisions and with additional resources from Rejlers in Sweden to deliver model-based design. I am proud to be involved in this important railway project together with the Aas-Jakobsen ViaNova network, with whom we have collaborated for many years," says Petter Arnesen, CEO of Rejlers in Norway.


The project will run for many years and further strengthens Rejlers' position in railways and infrastructure.


“The project has ambitious sustainability goals and several requirements have been set in the contract related to sustainability, climate and the environment. Together, Aas-Jakobsen, ViaNova and Rejlers have won the contract based on good solutions, environmental and sustainability considerations," says Lars Narvestad, Director, Infrastructure at Aas-Jakobsen.
