Invensys Rail Dimetronic has commissioned its ATP (Automatic Train Protection) and ATO (Automatic Train Operation) signalling technologies in the new stations of the line 4 of Bucharest Metro, Jiului y Parc Bazilescu.

With the completion of this project, the signalling of these new stations is added to the one installed in the other four stations that are part of the current line 4 – Gara de Nord, Basarab, Griviţa y 1 Mai -, which are equipped with Invensys Rail Dimetronic’s technology since its commissioning in 1999.

Invensys Rail Dimetronic has installed in this new construction section its advanced railway signalling systems based in the Westrace electronic interlocking, the automatic train protection and control systems (ATP/ATO), based on speed codes, as well as the passenger announcement system and the passenger information system.

In the framework of the project, the company has updated the signalling and communications systems of the line, the Control Traffic Centre (CTC), the AVI (Automatic Vehicle Identification) system and the interlockings of the stations Gara de Nord and 1 de Mai, including the local aid maintenance systems and the local control desk.

Metrorex, the operator of Bucharest Metro, has trusted again Invensys Rail Dimetronic’s technology for the signalling of the line 4 extension.

Invensys Rail Dimetronic 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 systems in the new stations of the line 4, 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 six kilometers, after the commissioning of the new section. The construction of a new extension in this line, including the new stations of Laminorului and Straulesti, as well as the project for a branch line to connect line 4 and Otopeni airport, are planned. Nowadays, the first phase of line 5, between Drumul Taberei and Eroilor, is under construction.
