Electrification: Catenary construction

Our experience

A policy of significant investments and acquisitions has enabled GCF to operate in the electrification segment with people, structures and advanced technologies, as well as incorporating and optimising experience gained over the years by sector leaders.

In the railway sector, as well as in urban transport (tram, trolleybus and metro), GCF - Generale Costruzioni Ferroviarie S.p.A. designs and installs, modernises or implements maintenance of:

•   Electric traction lines:
construction, modernization and maintenance of conventional systems for slow lines (3 Kv DC) and High-Speed/High Capacity lines (25 Kv AC), with traditional copper cables and/or optical fibre
•    Electric sub-stations and cabins:
for power conversion and/or transformation;
•    Lighting and drive power systems:
in railway stations and stops, tunnels, pavements, metros.

Our philosophy

The production process starts off with design in our own Technical Office through to final testing of the entire system, providing customers with a single point of contact capable of coordinating all operational stages, from procurement to on-site construction.
