Our role is significant in one of the historic developments of the Hungarian railways
RailCert Hungary Kft., as an independent certification organisation, is involved in a number of large-scale projects in Hungary, thus contributing to Hungary’s railway development programme.
Among our projects currently being carried out, there are some which, due to their size, cover a separate subsystem or contain a unique solution in one of their elements, unique in the history of the Hungarian railways. These include the Southern Connecting Rail-Danube Bridge Modernisation (in Hungarian:”DÖVH”) project, the first milestone of the Southern Circular Railway, which will be built over the Danube on three railway tracks. Within Budapest, there has not been a comparable railway investment for decades, and this will be exceeded in the near future by the triple track upgrading project between Budapest Ferencváros and Kelenföld. In the framework of the present project, a new (third) superstructure has been constructed, and the existing two superstructures have been replaced and the substructure/superstructure elements have been modified as necessary. Our Conformity Assessment activities focused on the structural requirements of the proposed single span, multi-span steel truss bridge. Closely linked to the project schedule, the EC (NoBo) and NR (DeBo) certification procedures were carried out for the inclusion of limited service level traffic, separately assessed according to the construction of the bridge structures. We also carried out the verification of the conformity and suitability for use of the installed system components, as well as the relevant subsystem requirements. Before issuing the Intermediate Statement of Verification, our experts participated in the static and dynamic test loads required for the placing in service of the structures.
Our next and final task is to carry out the Conformity Assessment procedures and issue the certificates required for the authorisation for placing in service.
