Expansion of Amsterdam Centraal Station

Expansion of Amsterdam Centraal Station

The main train station, Centraal Station, built on three man-made islands, is situated in the centre of Amsterdam. Starting this year, the train station has been upgraded with a hall, the so-called Poortvrije Passage, which houses a hundred shops and restaurants and an east and west entrance. Over 180,000 MÜPRO products were installed in this approximately 800-metre-long Poortvrije Passage and in an also newly constructed 150-metre-long supply tunnel.

Special requirements

  • Fixing of cooling water and heating systems and the suspended ceiling to the ceiling for the entire ceiling area of the hall and both passages using a support channel system which is distinguished by its stability and ease and flexibility of installation and allows custom lengths. 
  • Supporting structures for fastening signs with custom lengths and calculations for wind load.
  • Fire resistance class F60 for rail constructions.
  • Fixing of pipeline systems for heating system and extinguishing water system in the supply tunnel.

Successful implementation

  • Creation of functional pipe fixing systems in 2D with AutoCAD by MÜPRO application engineers.
  • Determining of load values and required spacings of support channels.
  • Installation of a grate-like steel structure with high load-bearing capacity for fixing the heating system, cooling water system and suspended ceiling, comprising a custom-built non-perforated six-metre-long hot-dip galvanised MPR-Support channels and two hot-dip galvanised rigid MPC-Support channels.
  • Fixing of the suspended ceiling using threaded rods on the MPC-Support channels. 
  • Bridging of existing wall ducts with rail brackets, which were pre-assembled from MPC-Support channels under MÜPRO CustomServ®.
  • Fixing signs with MPT-Support profiles Q50, produced according to customer requirements.
  • Heavy-duty fixing of pipeline systems in the supply tunnel with STATO brackets.
