Construction project of the overhead contact line for trucks in the section A5 of the highway between Darmstadt and Frankfurt am Main.

The company Achat Infrastruktur GmbH is involved in the construction project of the overhead contact line for trucks in the section A5 of the highway between Darmstadt and Frankfurt am Main.

In the scope of the commission we received from the company SIEMENS we perform collective rail mounting and installation of line pipe, power supply of 0.4 kV and of disconnectors.

The ELISA project – “Elektrifizierter, innovativer Schwerverkehr auf Autobahnen” (The Electrified, Innovative Truck Traffic On Highways) aims at creating a pilot line which would supply trucks in vehicular traffic with electricity. The project consortium Hessen Mobil as the road administrator and the Technical University of Darmstadt are going to survey all relevant aspects of the road traffic technology, as well as the ecological and economical aspects, which are material for further system development. The functionality and reliability of new vehicles and systems of infrastructure will be tested during their actual everyday exploitation.
