CH2M HILL has been awarded a contract by PKP PLK to carry out the feasibility study and design for the electrification of a railway line in Poland.
PKP PLK plans to modernize about 30 kilometers of rail line that runs from Wegliniec to Gorlitz at the country border with Germany, as part of a larger US$1.1 billion rail modernization project.
The project contract is worth about US$513,000, CH2M HILL said in a statement. The Colorado-based engineering company will analyze socio-economic factors, traffic, railway infrastructure, rolling stock, network power systems, as well as environmental impact assessments. In addition, the transportation team will provide construction design and cost estimates for the operation and maintenance of power lines, substations and overhead line equipment.
The work will be completed by the end of November 2015.
