Lithuanian Railways - Bridging East and West
Lithuanian Railways, a key player in the European rail network, manages an extensive and diverse 2000km railway infrastructure, featuring both 1520mm and 1435mm electrified/non-electrified tracks. With the upcoming addition of the high-speed railway line Rail Baltica, our infrastructure will become even more diverse and accessible providing a swift high-speed connection to western Europe. Unique geographical location makes the Lithuanian railway infrastructure a gateway between east and west with mixed operational conditions and modes of transport.
Driving sustainable innovations
Most of the main lines are electrified or in the process of being electrified, unfortunately, electrification for parts of the infrastructure like regional lines, marshalling yards, and depots is not economically viable. Our primary goal is to tackle the challenge of reducing diesel freight traction in regional and non-electrified lines, which is crucial for achieving our strategic carbon footprint reduction goals. We believe that a robust and scalable solution to this issue is vital not only for sustainable national business growth but also for maintaining competitiveness in global markets. By participating in this challenge, you have the opportunity to be at the forefront of sustainable railway innovation. You will be contributing directly to an essential environmental initiative, gaining invaluable skills and experience in the process. This is your chance to play a key role in shaping a greener future for rail transport, bridging the gap between traditional and sustainable practices in a dynamic, international context.
