Estonia’s Rail Network to Be Fully Electrified

The Estonian rail infrastructure manager AS Esti Raudtee has awarded a contract for the electrification of the country’s rail network to a joint venture comprising the Spanish engineering companies Ardanuy and Ayesa.

The companies will produce a preliminary design for the works, which cover more than 500km of track. The proposal will specify the overhead line equipment and substations required to deliver on the contract. The joint venture will present a solution based on 25kV AC operating voltage.

Estonia currently has some electrified track, mainly stretching east and west out of Tallinn, the capital. This project aims to electrify the whole country to meet the current and future needs of both passengers and freight traffic. The project will be economically, socially and environmentally beneficial.

The North Sea-Baltic TEN-T Corridor runs through Estonia.
