Double the power in railway construction – track renewal with rail crane in the Main Koblenz Station

The Rhine meets the Moselle at Deutsches Eck. This popular excursion destination is the landmark of the city of Koblenz and a magnet for many visitors. This makes it all the more important that the Main Koblenz Station can be reached by rail.

For that reason, from the end of March to mid-April 2019, Hering Bahnbau GmbH renewed 13 points in the Main Koblenz Station for DB Netz AG. The switches had already been assembled by the railway construction team 14 days earlier. Then, for four consecutive nights, all points were moved by a railway slewing crane from the Hering crane fleet to the vicinity of the installation site.

The first three points were rebuilt between 30.03.2019 and 01.04.2019. The extended Easter weekend from 17.04. - 25.04.2019 was used effectively and with the full commitment of the participants for the conversion of the other ten points. Thanks to the good cooperation – both within the railway construction team and between Hering and the client as well as the construction supervision - the conversion was successfully completed.
