OCTAGON CONTRACTING & ENGINEERING has performed two thirds of the contracted works for the rehabilitation of Brasov- Simeria railway, Coslariu- Sighisoara section, two years from the beginning of the project. The delivery term is November 2014. The beneficiary of the project is the National Railroads Company (CFR) and the general contractor for Coslariu- Sighisoara section is the Portuguese company FCC Construccion.
Brasov – Simeria railroad is a component of the Fourth Pan – European Corridor. The objective of the project is to rehabilitate and
modernize 89.5 km of double electric powered railway line between Sighişoara and Coşlariu, including all the connecting
structures and auxiliary works, to ensure a maximum speed of 160 km/h for
|Sheet pile installation|
The following works will be performed within the project: rehabilitation of 63.46 km of double electric powered railway line; building 26.04 km of double electric power railway line; rehabilitation of 10 railway stations.
|Sheet pile execution and retention systems|
The rehabilitation of the railway road will be performed with European financing, acquired within the Priority Axis nr. 1 „Modernizing and Development of Priority Axis TEN-T, with the Purpose to Develop a Sustainable Transport System and its Integration in the EU Transport Networks.", Major Intervention Domain 1.2 „Modernizing and Development of Railroad Infrastructure over the Priority Axis TEN-T 22".
|Bored piles execution and retention systems|
OCTAGON is performing the following works for the construction of section II- Coslariu- Sighisoara: drilling of bored piles D 1.000, anchorages, stone columns, sheet pile installation and gunite for tunnels and bridge.
OCTAGON also has four other ongoing infrastructure projects. OCTAGON is geotechnical construction contractor at one of the most important infrastructure projects in Bucharest: ”The underground road passage from Piata Presei”, where the
company is building diaphragm walls. The passage will have a total length of 550
meters and two exits. One of the exits will lead to Kiseleff Road and the
second one will lead to Marasti Blvd.,
allow crossing the area on any direction and subsequently connect public
ground transport, the railway line and the bus lines, with the station of the
future metro line 6. The purpose of the passage is to streamline the traffic in
one of the most crowded areas of the capital.
|Sheet pile extraction|
Another important project under construction, within which OCTAGON is working, is Lugoj- Deva Highway. The company is building bored piles for sections A, D and E, sector 2. The highway will stretch over 100 km on delivery. Sector 2 will be 28 km long.
OCTAGON is performing foundation works: bored piles and sheet piles at the project “Passage over the rail road km 5 + 343” in Craiova.
|Sheet pile retention systems|
The fourth project started this year by OCTAGON is “Functional rehabilitation of Revolutiei Square from Slobozia”. The company is part of ACM4- Romprest- TIAB- OCTAGON Consortium and is performing geotechnical works: metal sheet piles and drilling for dewatering systems, within a parking lot project.
“Even if infrastructure has not been a priority for public investments this year and the market is not going through a dynamic period, we have four new ongoing projects and we are continuing works at the rehabilitation of Brasov- Simeria railroad, a project started in 2012. But the perspectives for infrastructure development are positive. After four years of slowdown, the infrastructure will inevitably become the engine of the construction market development.” said Mr. Alexandros Ignatiadis, co-founder and shareholder of OCTAGON CONTRACTING & ENGINEERING.
