Rail Systems

Rail Systems

As global demand and prices for oil will continue to rise, countries and operators needs to speed up the development and improvement of their rail bound transport infrastructure to reduce their dependency on the natural resource of oil and to lower travel expenses for their consumers.

We have long-lasting world-wide experience in the implementation of safe, efficient and effective rail transport systems and provide in this regard the full range of professional consultancy services.

Being one of the few system planners for railbound traffic systems, we deliver our clients tailor-made solutions which enable them to meet their business targets and transform their visions into reality. With the experience and know-how of our engineers, we provide global expertise for the whole railway market, from mass rapid transit to heavy rail systems. Our competence results from more than 35 years of experience in planning, project engineering and tendering for railway technical systems including all system components of the rail infrastructure, operating facilities and railway equipment.

This results in coherent state-of-the-art planning optimised in relation to performance and approval capability, feasibility as well as economic efficiency in construction and subsequent operation.

Railway Infrastructure

Pöyry has extensive experience in the planning, design, construction management and supervision of high-speed rail, conventional passenger rail and freight rail services. This is particularly so in the very recent HSR program initiatives in Algeria, China, Germany, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland and Taiwan.

Railway Installations

We are one of the few generally approved and certified consulting and engineering companies providing the whole range of railway installation systems. This applies in particular to complete railway installations including signalling, electrical installations, catenary contact lines, electric power supply and telecommunications.

Construction Management & Site Supervision

Pöyry's strength comes from the capabilities of experienced engineering teams who are accustomed to reviewing different interdisciplinary problems and presenting various ways to tackle project demands.

Operation & Maintenance

The perception of the interdependencies of operation and infrastructure forms the basis of our solutions for an infrastructure which is adapted to economic efficiency and operational requirements. We particularly focus on the structural implementation under the »rolling wheel«.

Environmental Planning & Survey

Thanks to a multitude of railway projects realised and the experience gained in combination with environmental planning expertise, Pöyry has a leading know-how in railway-specific environmental planning from environmental impact assessment studies to compliance procedures.

Green Rail Engineering

New engineering solutions are needed to reduce the CO2 emissions of rail transport. This is where Pöyry can make a real difference - all over the world. Pöyry has sustainability high on its agenda.
