The Swedish Transport Administration has placed an order to supply SelectaDNA Trace to mark cable and metal along the nine kilometre Harbour Railroad (Hamnbanan) in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The trial order is part of The Swedish Transport Administration’s target to mark valuable metal in selected hot spot areas to prevent theft. Deterrent warning signs will be placed along the rail link every 100 metres.
In 2012, there were 318 metal thefts from the railroad, which links the Port of Gothenburg with the rest of Sweden. This caused 45,000 minutes delay to train services and major expense to the Swedish economy.
Selecta DNA’s Swedish distributor Ernst Oldof Persson said: “Metal theft has been a major problem in Sweden for a long time and we are very happy to be a part of The Swedish Transport Administration’s quest to solve this problem.”
