Project Description

Krupp MillServices & Systems GmbH

Extension to the Wuppertal suspension railway

After almost 100 years in operation, the Wuppertal Urban Municipal Works Department decided on a complete replacement of the supporting structure, as well as for the new construction of the majority of the stops of this historic suspension railway. Because the suspension railway is the most important means of public transport in Wuppertal, normal operation had to be upheld as far as possible.

The railway was divided up into individual contract lots and renewed on a strict time frame. The stops had to be erected under running operation. The general contractor ThyssenKrupp Anlagenservice replaced a total of 2.2 kilometres of the suspension track as well as six stops.

The selected procedure made great demands on the preparatory work, the erection planning and the progress planning. Close collaboration between all participants was thus required.

VIB took over the entire project management and control for ThyssenKrupp Anlagenservice GmbH (formerly Thyssen KlOEnne GmbH). The main emphasis was on the coordination of all internal and external contractors, progress controlling, the cost control including supplementary works and claims management.

The works were completed on schedule in October 2001.

The VIB services rendered:

  • Project management incl. coordination of tenders
  • Purchasing coordination
  • Progress, cost and quality controls
  • Supplementary works management
