Improved power supply for the railway

Improved power supply for the railway

Full speed ahead for the ICE

In order for the ICE power supply on the Karlsruhe-Mannheim-Stuttgart route to continue working at an optimum level, SAG modernised the Karlsruhe substation.

The Karlsruhe substation is an important component of the electric power supply to the ICE Karlsruhe-Mannheim-Stuttgart rail line. Within 15 months, SAG carried out a complete modernisation of the substation.

For this, SAG developed the overall concept for the operator, DB Energie, and also took care of the installation and commissioning of cutting-edge protection and control technology, infeed and transformer fields, as well as a coupling with a sectional disconnector.
