Passenger safety provide by DEVI
Kongsberg Railway Station was totally rehabilitated during 2003 and 2005. The client, NSB, needed help in the planning process from a supplier with experience in big ice and snow melting applications for platforms, walking areas, tunnels, and stairs. DEVI had such experience, and its products were described as standard in the enquiry.
Mayor Melih Gökçek, who explained that the 7 kilometer road under which the heating system had been installed, has 3 incoming lanes and 3 outgoing lanes for a total of 6 lanes. “First we made a total of 12 tire tracks in all of the lanes that are 50 centimeters wide. Then, we installed cables in these tracks to set up the heating system.”
Nowadays, travelers enjoy excellent traveling conditions in every season and particularly safe conditions during the winter months.
Purpose of the DEVI system: Ice and snow melting system for platforms, walking areas, tunnels, and stairs.
