From the field: HAN Rail safeguards the electrification of the Oldenburg-Wilhelmshaven line
This large worksite requires a variety of safety systems for the different sections of track and wide range of construction activities. For example, longer sections of the worksite are secured with the new cable-based ZPW126-31 warning device. Moreover, the innovative radio warning transmitter is also used in many places, both set up on a tripod and attached to masts and pylons via the magnetic mount.
The worksite situation is changing rapidly and demands new safety methods almost daily. Our handy, compact warning devices help our customer HAN Rail ensure that the large number of employees in the various trades are always optimally protected.
What was the task?
The commissioning of the JadeWeserPort, the third-largest container port in Germany, which can also be called at any time by large container ships regardless of the tides, is greatly increasing the utilisation of the Oldenburg - Wilhelmshaven railway line. The line, which began operation back in 1867, is now being upgraded, double-tracked, and electrified.
What was the task?
In order to replace the subsoil and fix it with concrete pillars, the ZPW126-10 radio warning transmitters were used to secure exactly the points where the greatest ambient noise was generated. The straightforward addition and removal of further warning devices – whether as individual warning devices or bidirectional groups – in the radio group ensure a high degree of flexibility for safety.
How did the project go?
Longer-lasting construction measures carried out over larger construction sections are secured with the ZPW126-31. The nearly stepless Autoprowa effect (automatically proportional warning signal emission), the automatic adjustment of the warning signal level to the ambient noise, ensures significantly greater acceptance among residents here.
With the new generation of warning devices – both in the radio warning device and wired warning device sectors – ZÖLLNER has brought a super flexible warning system onto the market, with which we were able to optimally meet almost every challenge of this particular large worksite.

The components we used
The ZPW126-10 is a radio-controlled warning device for collective or individual warning in the track area. As the latest component of the Mobile Radio Warning System, it can be used both on the field side and on track construction machines. Acoustic and optical warning devices with the highest safety integrity level (SIL 4) are used for the warning.

- Stepless Autoprowa effect+
- 360° visual perceptibility
- Stand-by indicator
- No user limit for the mobile radio warning system
- Warning range change and standby mode
- Includes optional tracker for integration into the ZCloud
