As part of a consortium with construction company Per Aarsleff AS, Siemens has been commissioned by Danish rail company Banedanmark to electrify nine rail routes with a total length of some 1,300 km. The company will fit overhead lines (2 x 25 kV) to nine tracks on Denmark´s rail network by the end of 2016. The electricity supply will also be installed with substations, auto transformer stations and remote control equipment. This ambitious project will kick off with the electrification of the 57 km stretch between Esbjerg and Lunderskov in the south of the country.
