New member of the group: Willke Systems GmbH & Co. KG

New foundation of the Willke Systems GmbH & Co. KG in March 2015.

As of the 01.03.2015, with our new company Willke Systems GmbH & Co. KG, we took over the employees and fixed assets of Strukton Systems and continued with the existing framework agreements. With effect from the 17.04.2015 we have also received the prequalification “Catenary systems 15kV – Standard” from Deutsche Bahn AG and look forward to tackling the new tasks together with you.

For more than 35 years we have been active as a medium-sized family business in railway construction, both in Germany and in Scandinavia. The overhead contact line sector is therefore well known to us and a good addition to our service portfolio.

The Willke Systems GmbH & Co. KG is to operate as an independent company in the overhead line construction and maintenance sector and continue to distinguish itself as a reliable service provider. Mr. Nenad Jovic – already known to you as your contact person at Strukton Systems – will continue to be available for you as usual. Mr. Kai Schmoll has left Willke Systems GmbH & Co. KG at his own request in order to take on new challenges. We wish him great success on this path.

In the future it will also be our goal to get many new ideas on the road in order to further expand our services for you with an additional plus in safety.

New orders in Denmark for Willke Danmark ApS

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.
