RAILPOOL is investing in the construction of a new modern locomotive workshop in Hamburg Billbrook, which is scheduled to start at the turn of 2022/23, with a building period of approximately one year. The construction project will be carried out on the workshop site acquired by Railpool Lokservice in 2018. The project comprises a total floor space of approximately 4,000 m², of which around 800 m² will be used for offices and social rooms. The groundbreaking ceremony took place on 7 December 2022 in the presence of Railpool Lokservice employees.
A new office building with attractive social rooms will be built adjacent to the hall, which will also house state-of-the-art training and office facilities. The growing, qualified team can look forward to a correspondingly modern workplace. The new building will be future-proof, not least thanks to its energy-efficient construction. The offices will be heated with waste heat from the workshop and the roof area will be used for the installation of a photovoltaic system. The entire roof area of the office building and the workshop hall will be covered with extensive greening.
RAILPOOL has six company-owned workshop locations. The two works of Railpool Lokservice are at the hub of European freight traffic in Hamburg, another in Germany is KTG in Duisburg, and in August 2022, the Norwegian NTT AS was added with three workshop locations in Norway and Sweden.
