edilon)(sedra has been awarded the contract to supply track systems for the 5 km extension of the Vitoria-Gasteiz tramway for contractor UTE Tecsa Altuna and end-customer Euskal Trenbide Sarea. Vitoria-Gasteiz is one of the most environmental orientated cities in Spain.
Investments in green development to improve infrastructure, are supported by both the local government and city council. Low noise and vibrations combined with an outstanding electrical isolation are some of the key requirements for the track.
Our track systems Corkelast® EBS and SDS provide answers to these requirements and will be installed accordingly. Our rail coating solution Editack, will be supplied for rail isolation and our Trackelast® noise & vibration mats for sensitive areas. Product deliveries will start from Spring 2021. Our application engineering team supports with the design works, preparation of switches and installation supervision.
The 5 km extension includes five new platform stops that are identical in structure, size and shape. They will be located in Santa Lucía, La Iliada, Nicosia, La Unión and Salburua. From 2008, we arranged a broad spectrum of rail fastening systems and technical consultation services for the Vitoria- Gasteiz tramway in Spain, including ‘in street’, station, grass and depot tracks (16,5 km in total). The tramlines are perfectly integrated in the urban landscape and offer a vital contribution to the city’s high ambitions in the field of sustainability.
