Levallois-Perret, Hauts-de-Seine, France, 2015/07/16 - Alstomís new remotely controllable computer-based interlocking system, which was produced for Rete Ferroviaria Italiana1, has now been activated at Bari Parco Nord - Alstom.com. FR0010220475; ALO
The Ä7.6 million project involved replacing the previous electromechanical system with Alstomís latest-generation of Smartlock 400 GP system, and other related works such as: 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.
ďThe collaboration with RFI to obtain the authorisation of the National Railway Safety Agency was a determining factor in ensuring the success of this project, which involved the implementation of a new product,Ē declared David Cannafoglia, Managing Director of Alstom Bologna.
This product has been developed by Alstomís railway signalling centre of excellence in Bologna and its railway signalling research and development centre in Bari.
About Smartlock 400 GP
The latest generation in computer-based interlocking systems for station and line control, Smarlock 400 GP reduces operating costs through the full automation of route settings and direct links to station services such as passenger information systems. The fully integrated train detection system, direct interface with point machines and signals (no need for traditional signalling relays) and remote diagnostics help to reduce maintenance costs. Installation can be simplified thanks to the systemís modular architecture and extensive factory testing of the final configuration.
