Metrorex, the operator of Bucharest Metro, has trusted again in Invensys Rail Dimetronic’s technology for the signalling of the line 4 extension.
Invensys Rail Dimetronic will provide with its signalling technology the two new stations of Bucharest Metro’s line 4, Pajura and Parc Bazilescu, which will be added to the other four stations that shape the current line – Gara de Nord, Basarab, Griviţa y 1 Mai -, and which are equipped with Invensys Rail Dimetronic’s technology since its commissioning in 2000.
Within the framework of this project, which has an execution deadline of 12 months, the same signalling technology present in the rest of the line, ATP (Automatic Train Protection) systems and ATO (Automatic Train Operation) systems, based on speed codes, as well as Passenger Information System and Passenger Announcement System, will be installed in the new extension of line 4.
Invensys Rail Dimetronic will also provide the uninterrupted energy system and the distribution and commutation energy system in the new stations.
Increasing presence in Romania
Invensys Rail Dimetronic entered the Romanian railway market in 1999 after being awarded the contract for the installation of the signalling and communications system in the new line 4 stations , Gara de Nord, Basarab, Griviţa y 1 Mai.
Line 4, which travels across the North of the capital, is the most recent of the four existing lines of the Bucharest Metro and it has a length of four kilometers. In addition to this recently awarded extension, the construction of one new station, Laminorului, and a branch line, which will connect line 4 with the city airport, have been planned. Line 5 between Ghencea and Pantelimon stations is being currently built.
