Swiss federal railway (SBB) awarded Pöyry the technical consulting contract for railway systems within the scope of Smartrail 4.0.
In the RAM-Management project, Pöyry Switzerland is investigating the reliability, availability and maintainability of railway systems with regard to new innovative technologies. The focus is on a safe and reliable expansion of the capacity of the Swiss railway network whilst minimising life cycle costs.
“We are particularly pleased to support SBB in their innovation programme, as smart infrastructure will be an important cornerstone for process and plant optimisation in the future”, says Nicola Norghauer, Pöyry’s Head of Department in Transport.
With the smartrail 4.0 programme, the Swiss railway industry is creating an overall architecture for unlocking automation and optimisation potential in the areas of interlocking systems, control technology, outdoor installations, radio data transmission and traffic management systems. In addition, new technological developments in the field of localisation and automatic train operation will be integrated.
