Link to release: 6 November 2023. Ayesa, an international provider of IT and engineering services, has secured a €7m contract to supervise the design and construction of a new high-speed rail line in Poland.
This transportation infrastructure is part of a €30 billion megaproject known as the Solidarity Transport Hub or Central Communication Port (Polish: Centralny Port Komunikacyjny, CPK).
It is one of the most significant transport infrastructure projects in Europe and includes the construction of a new, built-from-scratch airport located 45 km from Warsaw and a nationwide high-speed rail and controlled-access highway network. After its launch in 2027, the system will have the capacity to carry up to 45 million passengers, with the goal to increase this capacity to over 100 million.
The scope of Ayesa’s contract includes the design and supervision of the 17-km section of the high-speed rail line from Łódź to Wrocław connecting these cities to the new airport. The new line will drastically reduce the current travel time as well as CO2 emissions and is expected to reach a top speed of 250 km/h.
Artur Majczak, Country Manager of Ayesa Poland, commented, “Our teams will use advanced BIM (Building Information Modeling) in the design phase to create a digital catalogue of the vital physical and functional elements across this project. We will employ the most up-to-date technology in the construction phase of the infrastructure while strictly adhering to stringent environmental regulations. The project undoubtedly represents a fantastic opportunity for Ayesa to strengthen its position in Poland’s engineering services market.”
He also highlights that the primary aim of the megaproject is to bring efficient rail services and infrastructure to underdeveloped regions, with the aim of augmenting the national rail network. These new lines are poised to deliver swifter, more reliable, and safer transportation options, particularly in densely trafficked corridors. Furthermore, it will establish connections to high-speed networks in the Czech Republic and Germany, thus streamlining international transportation.
