Line electrification by the end of 2022

WILHELMSHAVEN. At the start of the year Rail Power Systems, a company based in Munich, was commissioned by JadeWeserPort to carry out the operational planning and the electrification of a four-kilometre feeder section and the 16-track pre-routing group in the port. The construction work for extending the infrastructure between Ölweiche junction and the port, at a cost of roughly seven million euros, will begin mid-year and is due to be completed by December 2022 – the same time as the electrification of German Rail’s main line from Oldenburg – Wilhelmshaven.
