Alstom’s new remotely controllable computer-based interlocking system, which was produced for Rete Ferroviaria Italiana, has now been activated at Bari Parco Nord.

The project involved replacing the previous electromechanical system with Alstom’s latest-generation of Smartlock 400 GP system and other related works, including the installation of electrical power supply, telecommunications, air conditioning, fire alarm and extinguishing, and access protection equipment.

The system will allow the operator to manage rail traffic safely in accordance with the most recent standards and regulations.

The product has been developed by Alstom’s railway signaling center of excellence in Bologna and its railway signaling research and development center in Bari.
