Elecnor-Abengoa consortium is awarded electrification of Vilnius-Klaipeda line in Lithuania

(05/02/2020) 



The project, which is expected to last for four years, involves 730 km of railway track on the Vilnius ring road (34 km) and from Kaisiadorys to Klaipeda (320 km), crossing the country from east to west.

It also includes the construction of eight new traction substations, the adaptation of two existing ones, the connection of all of them to the national electricity network through 110 kV lines, as well as the adjustment and expansion of the signalling network, communications and control along the entire path.

This project completes the electrification of Corridor IX-B, which will allow the circulation of electric trains from the border with Belarus to the port of Klaipeda. This is one of the main axes of movement of goods in the Baltic countries and a key strategic objective for the development of the railway sector in Lithuania.
