Safer system on rail networks
Today, increasing numbers of trains are travelling at greater speeds across the Dutch and European rail network. At the same time, a safe track system must exist as the bottom line for travellers, transport companies and other rail users. This demands a qualitatively well-maintained rail network as well as all the associated systems. Examples here include level crossings, train safety and power supply. We keep a close eye on everything for you and act when necessary.
The growing demand for cross-border train services prompted the development of international agreements for train safety systems. Well-known examples of such standards include the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) as well as Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC), the variant for light rail.
Thanks in part to our operations abroad, Strukton Rail has accumulated a great deal of experience when it comes to installing ERTMS – both on the ground and on board (European Train Control System – ETCS). We carry out a range of projects in cooperation with different ERTMS/ETCS suppliers. What’s more, as a vendor-independent system integrator we can assist you with a broad range of services in the field of ERTMS/ETCS. From installation, testing and start-up to maintenance, system integration, monitoring and migration – we supervise all phases of the process. As such, we contribute towards a safer rail network within the Netherlands and beyond its borders
We use these tools to guarantee safe train operations:
- POSS (preventive maintenance and fault diagnostics system developed in-house by Strukton)
- ZKL 3000
- Train safety
- Train-bound inspection
