INSTALLATION OF A RAILROAD TRANSMISSION LINE ON THE OVERHEAD LINE SUPPORT

FUEHRUNG EINER BAHNSTROMLEITUNG AM OBERLEITUNGSGESTAENGE

The newly electrified railroad line Rheine-Salzbergen-Emden-Norddeich in West Germany is considered. A separate right-of-way for the 110 kv one-phase ac line to connect the substation Emden with the railroad supply system could not be implemented. Therefore the transmission line was carried along the overhead catenary supports that used concrete poles. Due to adverse soil conditions, rammed steel piles were used for foundation. The wind speeds which are considerably high in the coastal area forced a reduction of the maximum span of the overhead catenary to only 65 m. The one-sided crossarms for the 110-kv conductors were fixed on the poles utilizing a special method. The erection of a 110 kv transmission line on the catenary supports can only be carried out in special cases because of the technical and economical disadvantages involved.
