Norwegian infrastructure owner Kollektivtransportproduksjon AS (KTP) has awarded two contracts totalling £10.6 million to Invensys Rail to deliver signalling projects on the T-bane network in Oslo.
The first project is for Lørenbane, a new line which will provide a tunnel link between Ringbane and Grorudbane, allowing trains to pass directly from Sinsen to Hasle, via a new station at Løren; as a result, availability will be improved and passenger journey times reduced. An extension to the Kolsåsbanen forms the basis of the second contract, a Variation Order which covers signalling provision for the area between Gjønnes and Avløs.
Both contracts include all elements of design, supply, installation, testing and commissioning support, with Invensys Rail’s WESTRACE computer-based interlocking at the heart of each technical solution. The Lørenbane project will be delivered over five discrete phases, covering installation of new railway signalling for Lørenbane as well as modifications to the existing rail infrastructure and WESTCAD Signalling control centre at Tøyen. Final project commissioning is scheduled for December 2015, while the Kolsåsbanen project extension to Avlos is due for completion at the end of 2013.
Commenting on the contract award, Pieter Rypma, Invensys Rail’s Business Development Manager, said: “Having successfully delivered a range of projects in Norway since 1994, we are delighted to have been awarded these contracts by KTP. Our project teams are now working on the design elements of each programme and are looking forward to working with KTP and the other principal contractors to successfully deliver each of these projects”.
