Electrical engineering for rail-bound traffic

Stable, safe and effective railways are imperative to our clients. Electric energy is a necessity for operating trains, keeping tracks clear of snow and supplying signalling and telecom equipment with electrical power.

Railway electrical engineering is divided into solutions for power supply, low voltage and overhead lines. Sweco’s experts possess extensive experience of all of these fields and provide analytical, dimensioning and design services in all areas. We also perform various types of inspections and evaluations.

Sweco has engineers with expertise in electrical engineering and we solve every type of challenge in an effective manner. We are highly skilled in the interaction between overhead lines and the trains’ collection devices, which is particularly complex at high speeds and under substantial variations in temperature.
