SCiBreak has been selected by Trafikverket (the Swedish Transport Administration) to develop and supply equipment for the Swedish rail network. Swedish railways are seeing increasing passenger streams, resulting in a need for more traffic. The power supply system needs to be upgraded, but this often leads to excessive short-circuit currents in case of faults, which are damaging, and therefore are not allowed. SCiBreak will provide ultra-fast circuit breakers that can interrupt fault currents before damage is done.
“The technology provided by SCiBreak can enable us at Trafikverket to upgrade the railway power supply network at low cost as well as to avoid damage to equipment and distortions to rail traffic”, says Mårten Eklund, project leader at Trafikverket.
“We are proud of the confidence shown in us and our technology, by Trafikverket, and we will do our best to meet their expectations”, says Staffan Norrga, CEO of SCiBreak.
The total order sum is 38 MSEK which includes development work, delivery and commissioning of ten circuit breakers.
