India‘s first world class Railway Station Building, redeveloped under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) model. The redevelopment of former Habibganj railway station started in 2019 and was completed in 2021. A new steel structure building was designed with a foot over bridge connecting six tracks and five platforms. The building was renovated to LEED „green building“ standards with energy-efficient equipment, solar energy and wastewater treatment for reuse. Challenge In order to keep the stay in the station concourse as comfortable as possible, vibrations from rail traffic had to be isolated as far as possible. The station concourse is…

The Gösgen Nuclear Power Plant in Switzerland provides a good example of long-term use of elastic support and damping systems for various key components in nuclear power generating plants. During the operation of machines such as turbines, pumps and other rotating equipment, disturbing vibrations can affect other parts in the nuclear power plant. Vibration isolation technologies suppress these disturbing effects and can be installed as elastic support systems. These technologies can also be integrated for special protection of the installed safety systems to protect from external loads such as earthquakes, aircraft impact scenarios or the risk of possible…
