Sirti and PKP PLK, a Polish State rail company, sign an important agreement for the construction of a trial site. A significant step forward in a new Eastern European market
Milan, 11 June 2015 – Sirti recently signed an agreement with PKP PLK, manager of the rail infrastructure in Poland, for the construction of a trial installation of the railway signalling system CBI-Multistazione (Computer Based Interlocking). The agreement is an example of synergic transnational collaboration between two companies committed to modernising rail transport systems.
The Polish company, in concert with an independent external assessor, will carry out checks on the rail traffic control system. A positive outcome to the checks will allow Sirti to type-approve its equipment according to Polish legislation and therefore hit a new foreign market in the rail sector.
The CBI-M (COMPACT-SIS4) system was designed by Sirti at its Competence Centre in Genoa, a state-of-the-art multi-station signalling system, fully computerised which integrates railway signalling management functions with local station command and train distancing functions.
It is an innovative system with unique features: inter-changeability, scalability and compactness, which allow operating and maintenance costs to be reduced.
Thanks many years’ experience in the railway sector, its know-how and R&D work, Sirti is a global player in the design, construction, maintenance and integration of traditional and innovative line and station signalling systems and telecommunications and energy systems for railways, subways and tramways.
“This operation – stated Stefano Lorenzi, the Chief Executive Officer of Sirti – is proof of our ability to compete internationally not just in Telecommunications, our core business, but also in Transport, a sector in which we are developing high-value expertise and innovative solutions”.
