DB Regio selected for Rhein-Neckar operating contract
National railway CFR SA has awarded the Asocierea RailWorks consortium of Alstom, Aktor, Arcada and Euroconstruct a contract to modernise the Sighișoara – Brașov route.
The four-year programme to raise the speed of passenger trains to 160 km/h includes rehabilitation of 170 km of infrastructure, renewal of the electrification with Alstom’s OCS3 design, deployment of GSM-R and Atlas 200 ETCS Level 2, and development of a traffic control centre in Brașov.
Consortium leader Alstom has been undertaking railway works on Romanian sections of the TEN-T Rhine-Danube Corridor since 2012, and its share of the latest contract is worth more than €120m.
‘This contract reaffirms Alstom’s leading position on the Romanian railway market, for both digital train control and electrification’, said Gabriel Stanciu, Alstom’s Managing Director for Romania, Bulgaria & Moldova on March 5. ‘After installing the first modern traffic management system in Romania, we are now ready to extend such high level performance to the new sections.’
