Alstom has been awarded a project by the Spanish railway infrastructure manager Adif to equip three auscultation trains with its latest ERTMS technology solution Atlas. This upgrade of the on-board signalling systems on ADIF's monitoring trains will contribute to increase its services portfolio and improve performance. With this new on board solution, Adif laboratory trains will be fully aligned with the new European technical requirements for safety and interoperability.

The new on-board equipment supplied by Alstom incorporates the latest version (baseline 3) of ETCS Level 2 technology in these rolling laboratories for the validation of new and on-going trackside ERTMS projects and for routine inspections along the entire Spanish ERTMS-equipped rail network. Adifís laboratory trains monitor the Spanish high-speed network to guarantee quality and safety, ranging from aerodynamic behaviour in tunnels to infrastructure (catenary and track), mobile communications and signalling systems.

With over 15 years of experience installing ERTMS solutions, Alstom is a global pioneer in its development and implementation and a worldwide leader in on-board equipment. With projects in 30 countries, Alstom has equipped 18,000 km of tracks and over 6,000 trains of 130 different types with its Atlas ERTMS solution. Atlas is a scalable solution that can be adapted to all types of traffic and operational needs: passengers and freight, high-speed or suburban.

Alstomís signalling technology centre in Spainexecutes national projects and take part in some international projects. Highlights of ERTMS references recently awarded in Spain include the high-speed lines of the West Coast corridor (Albacete-Alicante), the Mediterranean corridor (connection with the French border), the Zaragoza-Huesca link and the Northwest corridor (Valladolid-Le?n-Burgos). Alstom has also installed or is installing the on-board equipment for the suburban networks of Madrid and Barcelona; for Renfe Ave high-speed trains (Series 100, 104 and 114) and for the Haramain project high Speed trains.

ERTMS programme (European Rail Traffic Management System) was launched in the early 1990s by the European Union to standardise and modernise the design of train signalling and protection systems. ERTMS are one of the keys elements of railway signalling systems to enhance safety and manage railway traffic control and ensure interoperability among European railway networks.
