Construction details


  • The South Europe Atlantique high-speed line will shorten the journey time between PARIS and BORDEAUX by almost one hour. With its 302 km of new high-speed tracks, it is a pharaonic project, the largest public-private partnership ever signed in Europe. TGVs will be supplied with electricity thanks to more than 10,000 tons of catenary pole installed. These metal beams manufactured by ARCELORMITTAL have been hot dip galvanized to resist corrosion for nearly 100 years.

    Partner for several decades of the railway industry in Europe, GALVA ECLAIR has been particularly requested to galvanize these sensitive parts in terms of safety and DECO GALVA has been selected to powder coat the poles. FRET ECLAIR intervened to transport them on the connections or on the bases work in trucks crane or trucks plateau.

    By mobilizing their expertise and industrial strength for the success of this exceptional project, the companies of the GALVA UNION group are proud to have taken part in a major land development project.
