The contract covers the design, manufacture, testing and approval of equipment for five different types of train, together with the supply and maintenance of these on-board signalling systems over a ten-year period. The equipment will be fitted to the trains by SNCB-NMBS. The ATLAS 200 ERTMS [3] level 2 solution chosen complies with the most recent Technical Specifications for Interoperability [4].

Atlas 200 offers integrated control over level crossings, standardised braking models that can be varied according to ground conditions and the "limited supervision" protection mode. The solution is currently being deployed by Alstom in Denmark, Germany, Austria and Australia.

"This is Alstom's fifth contract to supply ETCS [5] level 2 equipment compliant with Baseline 3. The decision to apply this standard now, which will be the only one authorized in a few years, gives rail operators the major benefit of avoiding migration operations," explains Marcel Miller, the Chairman of Alstom Belgium.

The contract confirms the maturity of Alstom's ETCS level 2 solution, currently being deployed in over 4,000 trains of over 100 different types, half of them already in commercial service, and the importance of an efficient maintenance solution.

The world leader in ERTMS technology, Alstom has secured contracts in 23 countries and covered 12,000 km of track, including six of the world's eleven high-speed lines fitted with the technology in full commercial service.

Alstom (alstom.com) was also the first company to equip a very-high-speed line with the technology (Rome Naples, Italy) as well as a cross-border high-speed line (Liège in Belgium to the German border), the line with the densest traffic (Mattstetten Rothrist in Switzerland) and a line dedicated solely to freight transport (the Betuwe line in the Netherlands).

About ERTMS / ETCS
ERTMS (European Railways Traffic Management System) has been developed to facilitate the expansion of the European Railways, including cross-borders operation. Its main constituent ETCS (European Train Control System) can be deployed with two main variants: ETCS Level 1 and ETCS Level 2. This system optimizes the line capacity in complete safety by anticipating and adapting the speed of the trains. The main advantage of ETCS Level 2 technology is its continuous train control and supervision via a radio-based signalling system, compared to ETCS level 1 systems which control the train through intermittent use of Eurobalises.
