Alstom to upgrade Rome suburb with latest rail signalling systems :Alstom as part of a consortium has been 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 amount of the project is worth €120 million, the share for Alstom Transport is €80 million. The project is expected to be completed in the spring of 2017.

To increase the efficiency of the railway intersection, which is 200 km long and sees the passage of 1 200 trains per day, the project involves the implementation of railway signalling systems, as well as SCMT cab signalling systems, telecommunications and civil works.

Alstom will provide its ACC-M railway signalling system , a computerised 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) on the entire network. It is based on Alstom’s Iconis platform, the latest Alstom technology which has been used for seven years at the Bologna railway intersection.
These new-generation computerised systems will guarantee the safety and integrated management of every aspect of railway operations (level crossings, passenger information, video surveillance), and provide the information required for rapid intervention and real-time decision-making.

“Alstom will provide RFI with the latest high-technology signalling systems, supporting our customer in its commitment to strengthening the country’s infrastructure” declared Pierre-Louis Bertina, President and Managing Director of Alstom Ferroviaria S.p.A.

The project will involve Alstom’s site in Bologna (600 employees), the group’s centre of excellence for railway signalling, in collaboration with the Bari railway signalling research and development centre (50 employees), and Guidonia in Rome (150 employees), specialised in railway infrastructure.
