Track Tec Construction involved in cable network construction project
Track Tec Construction, a company specialising in the comprehensive construction and modernisation of railway lines and stations, is implementing a new project of strategic importance for the region. Investors in the construction, which is expected to be completed in February 2024, include PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe S.A. and TAURON Dystrybucja S.A.
According to the press release, the company is involved in the construction of a 110 kV cable network that will cover three key areas: GPZ Miasteczko - GPZ Pyrzowice Lotnisko, GPZ Pyrzowice Lotnisko - GPZ Siewierz and GPZ Pyrzowice Lotnisko - GPZ Pomłynie. The project also envisages the expansion of the 110 kV switchgear of SE Miasteczko, which will be equipped with modern devices in field no. 12. As part of the investment, the 15 kV cable network of GPZ Pyrzowice Lotnisko - GPZ Siewierz will also be rebuilt.
One of the important elements of this project is the construction of a 20kV MV cable connection between GPZ Pomłynie and GPZ Pyrzowice Lotnisko. This part of the investment will also include the modernisation of GPZ Pomłynie, which will contribute to improving the reliability and efficiency of the network in the region.
“The main aim of the investment we are carrying out is to improve the power supply in the Pyrzowice Airport area. In order to meet this challenge, we are using the latest technology of cable pumping using the watucab method, which is still a novelty in Poland. This is the first project in the country to use this system on such a large scale," says Marita Szustak, president of Track Tec Construction.
As part of the extensive revitalisation and reconstruction of the partially disused railway line No. 182 Tarnowskie Góry - Zawiercie, Track Tec Construction will also carry out the construction of the GPZ 110/20 kV Pyrzowice Lotnisko substation. This state-of-the-art substation will be a key point on the cable network route, ensuring efficient supply of high-voltage energy. The company will also carry out the reconstruction of the PZO Mierzęcice substation to adapt it to the new requirements and ensure its safe and efficient operation in the power system.
Through the implementation of the project, Track Tec Construction is contributing to the development and modernisation of the local power grid.
