Investments in the industrial park amount to more than €61 million. It will be the most modern and environmentally friendly facility of its kind in Europe.
The construction of Europe’s largest intermodal railroad combined terminal East-West Gate (EWG) began in the Hungarian city of Fenešlitke, near the border with Ukraine. This is the first facility of its kind to be built using “green” technologies, writes Magyar Építők.
The terminal will also be equipped with its own 5G network. The capacity of EWG, which is being built on 125 hectares, is expected to be one million TEUs per year. Thanks to the facility will create about 140 new jobs.
EWG will be the largest and most modern land-based intermodal terminal in Europe, based on the change of gauge. It will be able to simultaneously serve four trains with a length of 740 meters.
The facility will operate using environmentally friendly technologies. The industrial park will be equipped with solar panels and a heat pump system. Only electric terminal tractors and electric cars will be used in the terminal.
EWG is expected to play a key role in the delivery of goods between Asia and Europe by an alternative route, ensuring faster deliveries and larger volumes than before.
The facility is scheduled for final delivery in the first quarter of 2022. The investment of 22 billion forints (more than 61 million euros) is being financed from private sources.
Earlier we wrote about the opening of an underwater tunnel in Hong Kong for $ 6 billion. The route runs at a depth of 60 m under the seafloor. For the construction of the tunnel was used a huge drill with a diameter of 17.6 m.
It was also reported that the two Ukrainian architectural projects were in the list of the best from Archdaily. They propose to use the rock and space underground as building sites.
