Schavemaker Logistics & Transport is expanding the Kąty Wrocławskie rail terminal, nearby Wrocław, Poland. According to the company, the expansion will help strengthen the Trans-European Transport Network by increasing its capacity and efficiency.

Schavemaker is expanding the Kąty Wrocławskie rail terminal to increase its capacity to handle freight trains. Works include the creation of an electrified new track which is capable of accommodating 740 metre trains. The TEN-T network aims to adhere to a standard of 740 metre trains to increase efficiency.

Besides facilitating 740 metre trains, the expansion will also allow for three trains to be handled simultaneously. It will also shorten the maneuvering times for trains by 4 hours per day, increase the reloading capacity of the terminal by thirty per cent and increase operating efficiency by 35 per cent. Lastly, Schavemaker will build a solar farm to guarantee a renewable energy source at the rail terminal.

The EU’s ‘Connecting Europe Facility’ programme has supported the terminal upgrade with 2,7 million euros.
