Durable level crossing for the Port of Fredericia, Denmark

Groth in logisitics and the assurance of a well-maintained harbour terminal stimulated the need for renewal of the level crossings at the Port of Fredericia in Denmark.

In order to facilitate freight trains and 110 t axle load reach stackers, a durable level crossing system was needed. Client ‘Fredericia Havn’ opted for the edilon)(sedra Corkelast® LCS (type LCS-350) solution, because of good experiences with edilon)(sedra level crossings in the past.

The first 4 standard level crossings were installed by edilon)(sedra in June; 118m of Corkelast® LCS in total. During the installation process the harbour remained in operation 24/7. The 5th level crossing will be installed in September 2019. This 165m level crossing, with a 150m radius curve, will be the Heavy Duty version LCS-350CT. This Container Terminal (CT) version is specially designed to cope with heavy reach stackers, which will operate in this specific area of the harbour.

edilo)(sedra is responsible for the slab design, installation of the slabs, planning and application of the Corkelast® ERS. The new level crossings wil result in greater freight capacity, improved transport efficiency and cleaner air. Freight can switch more easily and efficiently between road, rail and sea.

This Port of Fredericia project is comparable to our recent container terminal project ‘TCT Venlo’ in the Netherlands and the New Arken Combi Terminal project in Sweden.
