Precast for the Belgian railway

The first railway connection in Belgium was put into operation between the cities of Brussels and Malines on 5 May 1835. This stretch, which was then operated with steam locomotives, has since developed into one of the most up-to-date and complex railway systems in Europe with an overall length of 3,536 kilometers including high-speed sections for trains travelling at speeds up to 300 km/h. Having administered the Belgian railway infrastructure since 1 January 2005, Infrabel relies on its state-of-the-art concrete production facility in Roeselare to produce almost all the precast required for the Belgian railway, except for the concrete sleepers. The main products are cable ducts, concrete pits, platform edges and concrete blocks for railway overpasses. An automatic production machine for cable ducts and covers, a Blizzard from Prinzing GmbH, Blaubeuren in Germany, was purchased in 2007 and accounts for the high degree of automation of the production cycle.
