Alstom to equip Deutsche Bahn ICE trains with its ERTMS signalling solution

Alstom was awarded a contract by Deutsche Bahn (DB) worth around EUR 23M  to equip 40 first-generation ICE high speed trains with Atlas 200, its ETCS /ERTMS  Level 2 signalling solution. The contract includes also a software maintenance contract over six years and an option to equip 19 other trains.
The ERTMS level 2 that will be installed, complies with the most recent Technical Specifications for Interoperability and with ‘Baseline 3 maintenance release 1’ – a standard that will be in force in Europe as from July 2015.  Equipped with the new system, the train will be able to run from Berlin to Munich in four hours instead of the current six.
