In the Swedish city of Gothenburg a new combi terminal ‘New Arken’ is being realised. For track 903, main contractor NCC awarded edilon)(sedra the assignment to realise 622.5 meters of Corkelast® HSTS (Heavy rail Slab Track System), a combination of prefabricated concrete slabs, type ‘New Arken’ and the edilon)(sedra Corkelast® ERS (Embedded Rail System).
In addition edilon)(sedra will realise four 18 meter level crossings in Tracks 911a/b and Tracks 912a/b near the entrance of the terminal. These level crossings (situated in curves of R=150m and R=200m) will be of edilon)(sedra type LCS-L3. The edilon)(sedra part of the project will be realised in September 2017. The turnkey project, including slab design, implementation of the slabs and ERS application, is expected to take around 3 weeks. NCC is working for the Port of Gothenburg, the owner of the ‘New Arken kombiterminal’. When the terminal is finished it will be operated by Sandahlsbolagen.
The New Arken project is comparable with our recent container terminal project ‘TCT Venlo’ in the Netherlands. In the summer of 2015 we supplied 1.200 meters of Corkelast® edilon)(sedra HSTS for this terminal.
