Multiconsult has a large specialist rail centre with expertise within all core subject areas including superstructures and track, signalling and safety systems including ERTMS, rail power supply and catenary line installations, high and low voltage supplementary power systems including point warming and locomotive warming systems, earthing systems, telecommunications and information systems, and conducting wires. Rail assignments are typically multidisciplinary, requiring teamwork and close cooperation with other subject areas to develop effective solutions. Multiconsult has been involved in a number of major central construction plans and several strategic railway assignments in recent years.
Some strategic assignments worthy of note include the Follo Line project, the high-speed rail study, Bergen Light Rail, municipal subplans and project planning for several land parcels relating to InterCity, as well as studies for various infrastructure financing models. Solid railway engineering expertise and an understanding for how railway systems work are key to the planning and project design of highly technical, cost-effective solutions, and for ensuring the operational reliability of these solutions.
