The year 2012 brings orders for line renewal in Denmark.
In mid-December 2011, the joint venture Willke Danmark ApS / H.F. Wiebe was awarded the contract for railroad renewal between Skanderborg and Herning in Denmark. The work will run in the core period from April to August 2012 and essentially comprise 40 km of track renewal with ballast cleaning, plus 35 level crossings. Parallel to the track renewal, several switches and tracks will be rebuilt with new track boxes in ten stations. The contract is therefore worth a total of approximately 16,000,000 euros.
Furthermore, Willke Danmark ApS will start another project in Copenhagen Osterport from mid-March. In this very demanding project, a total of nine concrete switches of various sizes from EW190 – EW1200 are to be completely renewed from 30.03. – 10.04.2012, including the installation of a FPL. In addition, there will be approx. 1,200 m of track renewal with ballast renewal and work on drainage, cable ducts and the overhead line. The contract volume for this project is approx. 3,000,000 euros.

New legal form.
Willke GmbH is now starting with the legal form GmbH & Co. KG into the new decade. This change is part of a restructuring of the group of companies and came into force on 05.11.2009.
Willke rail construction has several construction projects in its order book for the first quarter of 2010. At Osthannoversche Eisenbahnen AG, OHE for short, we are carrying out various track and switch construction works. These include the reconstruction of 1,825 m of track, 1,200 individual sleeper replacements, several turnout sleeper renewals and the reconstruction of two level crossings.
For Deutsche Bahn AG, we are rebuilding a total of ten switches at Hamburg Central Station on five weekends in March and April. This work is being carried out under the most difficult logistical conditions, as the neighbouring track can only be closed during a four-hour night-time shutdown.
In addition, the Willke company will be working in Switzerland for the first time in March. A 627 m long railway track is being renewed at Basel Bad station.
In addition, there are long-term projects in Switzerland, which will start in the second quarter of 2010 and will be completed in several stages by 2012.
After entering the Norwegian market and the associated first reconstruction of Oslo station, Willke will continue to work on projects in Norway and Denmark together with the company H.F. Wiebe from Achim.
Job from Banedanmark: Seven level crossings will be renewed on the Bramming-Tonder line.
In parallel with the ongoing reconstruction work, Willke Danmark ApS will renew seven level crossings on the Bramming-Tonder line on behalf of Banedanmark in July and August 2008. In addition to the necessary track and earthworks, the installation of road surfacing will be added. We will also carry out the associated asphalt work.
