DB Schenker Rail Brings 37-Meter Long Concrete Elements to Wroclaw for Soccer Stadium
Six block trains transport 6,600 metric tons to new stadium being built for “EURO 2012”
Mainz/Zabrze - In the coming weeks, DB Schenker Rail will be transporting 72 concrete elements of up to 37 meters in length each from Neumark in Upper Palatinate, Germany, to Wroclaw in Poland for the Max Bögl construction company. The concrete elements weigh up to 100 tons each and are being used to build a new soccer stadium that is being constructed for the “EURO 2012” European Soccer Championship.
“A perfectly coordinated international network forms the basis for this unusual cross-border transport. Extreme dimensions and weights always represent a challenge for us. DB Schenker Rail Deutschland and DB Schenker Rail Polska are working closely together to provide our customer Max Bögl a single source for high quality and flexible solutions,” notes Karsten Sachsenröder, Member of the Management Board of DB Schenker Rail responsible for Sales.
DB Schenker Rail is using six block trains to transport the total shipment of 6,600 tons. Special cranes are being used to load the trains in Neumark. The trains cross the Polish border at Zgorzelec/Görlitz and then travel on to Wroclaw Kuzniki. The last kilometers of the journey take place at night when the elements are transported to their final destination by truck. The first train left on August 20 and the last one is planned for the end of September.
