“We are very pleased with our new colleagues and the addition of Eltel’s Danish railway activities. The acquisition means that Strukton Rail Denmark has acquired a new ‘competence-leg’ in the overhead line, while strengthening our expertise in signalling and track. The maintenance contract for Sund & Bælt will also play a significant role in our continued development of railway maintenance and asset management. Here we have skills that will be important in our continued work on developing strategies and technology that can optimize rail maintenance ”
