ABB building on 110 years of partnership on sustainable transport with Jungfrau Railways

ABB and Jungfrau Railways Group have been enabling energy efficient transport for 110 years now. The Jungfrau Railway, with the highest station in Europe, was inaugurated in 1912. Watch this video to learn more about the tremendous undertaking of the construction project which began in 1896 and brought the first passengers to the Top of Europe 16 years later.

Towering over a spectacular part of the Swiss Alps, the mighty Jungfrau mountain, at 4,158 meters, even looks down on the peaks of the nearby Eiger and Mönch. The journey up to the peak’s saddle, the Jungfraujoch, with the Jungfrau Railway arrives at the Top of Europe, the highest European railway station at 3,453 meters above sea level. ABB’s technology has played a pivotal role in this engineering feat for more than a century, and it continues to energize the line, while ABB traction equipment on board powers the trains to bring visitors to the summit year round. On the return journey to the base, downhill braking energy is converted into electric power and fed back into the grid.

Jungfrau Railway: reaching the highest station in Europe

The Jungfrau Railway carries over one million passengers to the Top of Europe every year and has become one of Switzerland's most important tourist attractions. It's been powered by ABB technologies since it was inaugurated 110 years ago, ensuring comfortable and energy efficient transportation.

Eiger Express: travelling 6.5 kms in 15 minutes

Since 2021 Switzerland's Jungfrau Region has two cableways carrying visitors in fast, comfortable gondolas high into the mountains. ABB motors and drives ensure safety and reliability while saving energy.
