Alstom to upgrade Italian rail signaling

Posted on December 11, 2013

Alstom, as part of a consortium, was awarded a contract by RFI (Rete Ferroviaria Italiana) to upgrade the Rome railway intersection, one of Italy’s busiest rail points where high-speed lines intersect with national and regional lines.

The total amount of the contract is worth approximately $165 million, with Alstom’s share worth approximately $110 million. The project is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2017.

To improve the efficiency of the railway intersection, which sees the passage of 1,200 trains per day, the project involves the installation of railway signaling systems, as well as SCMT cab signaling systems, telecommunications and civil works.

Alstom will provide its ACC-M railway signaling system, a computerized multi-station interlocking for the Tiburtina-Orte, Ciampino-Colleferro, and Roma Casilina-Campoleone-Nettuno railway sections. The group will also implement its integrated control and security centre (ICSC) across the whole network. This is based on Alstom’s Iconis platform, the latest Alstom technology which has been in use for seven years at the Bologna railway intersection.

These new-generation computerized systems will guarantee the safety and integrated management of every aspect of railway operations (level crossings, passenger information, and video surveillance) and provide the information required for rapid intervention and real-time decision-making.
