Sweden approves Bombardier’s Interflo solution

The Swedish Transport Administration, Trafikverket, and Swedish Transport Agency, Transportstyrelsen, have granted official approval for operation in Sweden for the Bombardier Interflo 450 mainline rail control solution. The type approval will allow Bombardier’s high-capacity signalling system to be implemented as part of Sweden’s programme to modernise its entire 11,000-kilometer mainline rail network.
The announcement reflects the successful operation of the technology on both the Ådal and Bothnia pilot lines which entered operation in 2012 and now run with 99.9% availability, over four times better than the existing system.
The official confirmation also makes Bombardier Transportation the first supplier to receive approval for its ERTMS Level 2 technology for Sweden and verifies that the Interflo 450 wayside solution meets the required national and European technical and safety regulations.
“With this final regulatory approval, our Interflo 450 solution is ready to play its part in the roll-out of ERTMS Level 2 rail control across Sweden, improving speeds, reliability and capacity while increasing integration with the rest of Europe,” Thore Sekkenes, Managing Director, Bombardier Transportation Sweden, said.
