Account & Project Management

The number and variety of modes of transport is growing constantly. Infrastructure being planned today must meet the demands of tomorrow’s developments. This requires a reliable and experienced partner with convincing references. The cablex portfolio includes the right experts for all the requirements along the product lifecycle.

cablex as general contractor and project partner.

For 20 years cablex has been successfully implementing projects in road and rail transport. As an experienced partner, cablex provides partial services or manages major projects as a general contractor from planning, coordination and installation through to handover to the client. On top of this, we supply documentation for the work performed (DAW), train operational staff and offer services for ongoing operation. With our on-call and standby service throughout Switzerland, we ensure a high level of availability and thus reduce potential downtimes to a minimum.

Construction projects like the Ceneri base tunnel or the LEB tunnel project in Lausanne are just two of the many references that cablex can provide in the rail infrastructure segment. Thanks to our many years of experience, we have an extensive portfolio and highly qualified specialist staff. Our industry knowledge ranges from modernisation of safety installations to securing the energy supply (medium- and low-voltage) – but why not take a look for yourself?
