Global engineering services and technology business, Ayesa has secured a contract to supervise the design and construction of a new high-speed railway line in Poland.
The works are part of the Centralny Port Komunikacyjny (CPK) project – a planned transport network set to transform Poland.
The CPK mega-project is said to one of Europe’s most significant transport infrastructure initiatives. It includes the construction of a brand-new airport close to the country’s capital, Warsaw, and a nationwide high-speed rail, and controlled-access highway network.
The new system is scheduled to launch in 2027 and is expected to accommodate 45m passengers, with a long-term capacity to carry over 100m commuters.
Ayesa will be responsible for the design and supervision of a 17-kilometre section of the high-speed rail line from Łódź to Wrocław, connecting both to the new airport.
Designed to reach top speeds of 250km/h, the new line will drastically reduce current travel time, and positively impact its surrounding environment with significantly reduced CO2 emissions.
Artur Majczak, country manager of Ayesa Poland, said: “The project represents a fantastic opportunity for Ayesa to strengthen its position in Poland’s engineering services market.
“Our teams will use advanced BIM (building information modelling) in the design phase to create a digital catalogue of vital physical and functional elements. We will employ the most up-to-date technology during the construction phase, which will help us adhere to the project’s strict environmental regulations.”
Luis Sanchez Carreto, director of transportation, EMEA and Asia, added: “This is a significant project for the future of the region, helping to bring efficient rail services and infrastructure to less connected areas in Europe.”
Ayesa opened its first permanent office in Poland in 2009. Since then, it has provided supervision services for over a hundred rail, road, and renewable energy infrastructure schemes.
Recent projects in the region include the construction of a new cargo terminal at Kraków John Paul II International Airport, as well as photovoltaic power stations in Budzyń, Przykona, Chotków and Konary for major clients such as EDP.
