New pulp wood rail track as turnkey delivery

The customer wanted to build a pulp wood track to its paper mill in order to expand the production area for pulp wood and wood chips. We offered a turnkey solution for a finished track.

Our first step was to develop a logistics solution for the mill that included the  placement and dimensioning of the railway track and storage yards, and the alignment of the road to ensure traffic safety. As part of the logistics solution, we also drew up a traffic plan with rail shuttles from different terminals. Based on the logistics solution, we then designed the track, electrical and signalling systems and roads and prepared the plans and tender documents. We provided support in the procurement of a building contractor, served as construction manager during the construction phase and performed the final inspection. Five years later we also performed the guarantee inspection.

Thanks to our full-service commitment, the customer was able to focus on its core business, while we took care of realizing the change, ensuring an on-schedule delivery of a pulp wood track with related storage yards.
