“A network milestone”

WILHELMSHAVEN. The electrification of the railway infrastructure of the JadeWeserPort was completed in December. At the same time as the Deutsche Bahn electri-fied the main rail line from Oldenburg-Wilhelmshaven, the port’s four kilometre feeder line and the 16-track pre-routing group went electric. Olaf Lies, Minister for Economic Affairs, Transport, Construction and Digitalisation of Lower Saxony, stated: “This step for our port is exceedingly important and long overdue. It is a true milestone for the network, and one which the port industry has been eagerly awaiting for years”.
