A consortium made up of Alstom, Thales and Nokia has finalized the delivery of its ERTMS / ETCS level 2 signaling solution for the E65 rail line in Poland.
The E65 railway line, which connects Warsaw, in central Poland, to Gdynia, is currently being modernized for faster and safer journeys.
Alstom noted that work on the project is based on a contract previously signed with PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe.
The consortium delivered the high-speed signaling solution for the 350 km long railway line, which covers 35 stations and allows trains to run at a speed of 200 km / h.
Sławomir Nalewajka, Managing Director of Alstom Poland, Ukraine and Baltic States, said: “This joint project is a game-changing achievement in the history of the implementation of the high-speed railway in Poland.
“In addition, the decision of the head of the National Safety Authority in Poland to approve rail traffic at speeds of up to 200 km / h under the control of ERTMS level 2 is the very first such decision. in the history of Polish railways. ”
Under the contract, Alstom and Thales Polska designed and implemented the ERTMS / ETCS level 2 signaling solution while Nokia was responsible for the supply of the GSM-R system.
The consortium also upgraded eight integrated control rooms and provided turnkey solutions for dispatch centers, remote traffic control and management systems, as well as an integrated passenger and passenger information system. video surveillance solutions.
Piotr Kaczmarek, Director of Nokia Poland, said: “State-of-the-art communication technologies and rail traffic control systems have been implemented in this historic project.
“The E65 Warsaw-Gdynia corridor, as well as the entire trans-European transport network, will derive economic and social benefits from the completion of this project. ”
