In association with several renowned offices, NFIC was awarded the contract for the Aigle-Leysin railway line expansion project. This particular railway engineering project asserts our ambitions in this sector and demonstrates, once again, how important sustainable development is to us.

On the initiative of NFIC, an ambitious group of contractors has been set up to respond to this call for tenders, bringing together renowned companies from all over the world, amongst them the engineering companies Basler & Hoffmann SA, SETEC SA and Weinmann-Energies SA, as well as the architectural firm AREP SA, a subsidiary of SNCF specialising in the railway sector.
Within this consortium, NFIC will primarily handle the structural aspects of the construction and renovation of the stations planned as part of the new railway line. This is an opportunity for our firm to bring its cutting-edge competencies in the construction field and to further enhance its expertise in railway engineering.

When innovation and value creation go hand in hand

Commissioned by the Transports Publics du Chablais SA company, the project to upgrade and expand the Aigle-Leysin line will completely reshape the railway landscape of the Vaud region. The existing railway route is now longer suitable for the layout and the dynamics of this mountain area, which have undergone considerable change since the railway line was first built more than 120 years ago.

Next stop: the future

Our firm has a long history of being involved with sustainable projects, integrating renewable materials and favouring constructions that integrate harmoniously with their environment. In this respect, the expansion of the Aigle-Leysin line is a perfect match with our vision, since it responds to an ambitious challenge – to build new underground lines, tunnels and a series of new stations – while at the same time upgrading and enhancing the existing structures.
