Equipment/​Electrical engineering.

Acting innovatively.

With our technical expertise in equipment/​electrical engineering, we develop and supply the optimum power structure for mainline and regional railways, tramways, urban and industrial railways. We build and renew track systems, signalling and safety engineering technology, telecommunications, electrical power and conductor rail systems. Our civil engineering and cable laying expertise round off the performance profile in this segment. We also carry out the design and construction planning for overhead line projects. Comprehensive prequalification and the know-how of our trained and examined employees are incorporated into complex equipment projects in the same way as in service and individual projects.

Planning and design

SPITZKE’s own design consultancy covers all phases of electrical engineering project planning: It performs independent preliminary, detailed and final design and construction planning tasks for overhead line projects and electrical power systems.

  • Planning of overhead line systems
  • Planning & design of 50 Hz projects
  • Structural calculations
  • Soil investigations
  • Development of special solutions

Foundations

We are specialists for deep foundations, shallow foundations and mast erection work. Using our special technology, we build the foundations and erect contact line masts, signal cantilevers, signal bridge foundations, supporting columns for highly loaded noise control walls and temporary bridges for railways and overhead lines for power supply companies.­ We do this using the following methods: Pile-driving, drilling, down-the-hole drilling (DTH – drilling from starter pits), rotary drilling and in-situ concrete. We use the know-how of our employees to develop the equipment technology further in-house.

  • Foundations for:
    Contact line masts for mainline and regional railways
    Signal brackets and gantries
    Overhead line masts
    Wind power systems
  • Erection of catenary supports for mainline and local transport railways
  • Piling sheet piling and retaining walls
  • Welding work
