Transformational project for KiwiRail. The new, feature-rich Iconis system will dramatically improve the way KiwiRail operates its network. The replacement of the existing Traffic Control Centre technology with this new, state-of-the-art, integrated control system will provide KiwiRail with greater network safety, security, and resilience, delivering greater control capacity and with the ability to meet the increasing demands of an expanding rail network.
Buckling on ballasted tracks is a result of the accumulation of energy in the track due to thermal variation. The technology startup MainRail has deployed a pilot of its new predictive buckling module in the Mallorca Railway Network (SFM) with the support of the construction company Azvi.
Siemens Mobility supported RATP and Ile-de-France Mobilités in the complete automation of Line 4. Siemens Mobility fully automated the line with its digitalized systems and CBTC signaling technology. The automation of Line 4 will centralize control of operations, increase availability, reliability, and capacity.
From September 20 to 23 at the InnoTrans trade fair in Berlin, SYSTRA, the global engineering group specialising in transport, and STRADAL, France's leading precast concrete company, will be exhibiting Slab Track, the new generation of low-carbon ballastless track that they have co-developed.
These two contracts relate to the cities of Hannover and Canberra for an aggregate in excess of €220 million and reinforce the company's significant orders in hand, which reached a record figure of more than €10.7 billion at the close of the first half of the year.
From intercity and cross border travel to urban mobility, digitalisation is shaping the future of sustainable rail. Thales wants it safe, affordable, accessible, efficient, and resilient, while minimizing carbon and other emissions and environmental impact.
