Nässjö Train Depot

About the project

The train depot in Nässjö is a major investment in line with the regional development strategy and the regional traffic supply programme. The new train depot is being built on a grassy area north of the marshalling yard in Nässjö and is expected to be completed in the second half of 2023 at a maximum cost of SEK 720 million. The train depot will take up about 35,000 square metres of land and the building is 7,500 square metres in size.

The new train depot will make it possible to develop train traffic in the long term by increasing maintenance capacity. The depot also makes it possible to handle the new trains that have been ordered, which are longer than the current trains and have a different location for the technical equipment.

Our role in the project

We at Alentec & Orion have been entrusted to deliver equipment to the train depot's new workshop in the form of

- Pumps for lubricants
- Hose reels
- Fluid monitoring system

We have developed a customised solution in terms of dimensioning, placement of equipment and safety requirements. We have used our long experience in designing systems like this in the project. The aim was to develop the best adapted solution for the business in terms of placement of media bars, solutions for waste oil handling in pits, dimensioning of hoses, solutions for secondary protection, etc.

It is a large depot with long distances, so in total we have run almost 3000 metres of steel reinforced hydraulic hose, consisting of five oil qualities, glycol, washer fluid, waste oil and compressed air. All hose installations are made without joints in sealed underground pipes to ensure that no environmentally hazardous substances can spill out if a leak occurs. Furthermore, thanks to the OriLink® fluid monitoring system, the systems are depressurised when not in use, ensuring a high level of safety in terms of secondary protection.

In a number of the tracks in the depot, we have developed waste oil wagons that are adapted to fit against the rails and can be pushed along the entire length of the track in the working pits.
