New DSB maintenance facility for Denmark’s new fleet of electric trains


Gottlieb Paludan Architects and Rambøll have won the contract for designing a maintenance facility in Næstved for DSB’s forthcoming electrically powered trains.

Up to 2030, DSB is replacing its existing diesel-powered rolling stock with new and faster electric trains to contribute to more climate-friendly rail traffic in Denmark. In this connection, DSB intends to construct a new maintenance facility capable of receiving, maintaining and preparing these new electric trains.

The facility in Næstved will replace existing facilities on Otto Bussess Vej in Copenhagen, and it comprises 36,000 m2 of floor space, the primary function of which will be to maintain and repair the coming fleet of electrically-powered engines and carriages.

Gottlieb Paludan Architects and Ramboll are currently working on two more maintenance facilities (in Aarhus and Copenhagen) to accommodate DSB’s new electrically-powered trains . In so doing, Gottlieb Paludan Architects is continuing and further developing its century old collaboration with DSB, concurrent with the introduction of new technologies for the railway network. Gottlieb Paludan Architects has been involved in building all previous maintenance facilities in Denmark, from which the company has vast experience to contribute to the area.

The new maintenance facility is expected to be ready in 2025.
