Refurbishment concepts for existing tunnels „Kelsterbacher Spange“ with PINTSCH ABEN Tunnel Safety Components

  • Project period: 2017
  • Location: Germany
  • Product category: Tunnel Safety Illumination

The Kelsterbacher tunnel is a part of the high-speed connection 2690 Cologne – Frankfurt (Main) and has a length of 994 metres .

It consists of a check bus centre with approx. 70 emergency lighting modules, each supplying two tunnel safety lights.

Defective components by Präzisa had to be replaced with approved components from PINTSCH ABEN, in order to restore the ability to monitor the system.

The compatibility of the PINTSCH ABEN emergency lighting system for railway tunnels with Präzisa technology, which arose from past activities, enables the economic refurbishment of existing tunnels, for which no spare parts would otherwise be available.
