PKP Energetyka S.A. removed ice from 73 track-kilometres of the traction network

Currently, in the area of Czestochowa, Kraków and Kielce, they struggle to clean the tracks as soon as possible. It was only last night that over 300 workers removed ice from 73 railway track-kilometres for 23 PKP Energetyka S.A. network trains.

At the moment, there are intensive works going on in the vicinity of Tunel (Warsaw – Krakow route). PKP Energetyka S.A. expects that the works related to the removal of ice from the overhead lines will last at least until the afternoon.
To enable railway operators driving with the use of electric locomotives, (currently, in this section, diesel ones are used), it is necessary to complete repairs by local power distribution companies and to restore power supply for traction substations in Słomniki (external power supplier for PKP Energetyka S.A.: ENION) and Tunel (external power supplier for PKP Energetyka S.A.: PGE).

It is estimated that in the most difficult moments, a total of 200 km of railroads were covered with ice.

PKP Energetyka S.A. is the power enterprise with a nationwide presence, in operation since 2001. Isolated from railway structures, the company is presently an active stakeholder in Poland’s electricity market. It sells and distributes electricity (traction power for the needs of railway carriers and non-traction power for other customers via direct connections or as TPA) and provides electric power services. PKP Energetyka S.A. caters to approximately 45,000 customers, including 37,000 institutional customers, over 7,000 thousand individual customers and 25 railway operators. During the first six months of 2009, the company sold a total of 1,729 GWh of electricity.
