In our latest free-to-view Signalling & Telecommunications Supplement, Johnny Restrup-Sørensen from Femern A/S takes a look at what signalling system is right for the Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link, Michel Ruesen celebrates 20 years of the EEIG ERTMS Users Group, and Chris Carson from Virgin Trains East Coast takes a look at good-practice sharing…
- The challenge to connect Denmark and Germany with the right signalling systems
With a length of 18.2km, the Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link between Fehmarn in Germany and Lolland in Denmark will be the world’s longest combined rail and road tunnel and an important piece of EU infrastructure. A tunnel of this length and with handover of trains between Denmark and Germany to different rail systems presents a number of challenges that the state owned client Femern A/S has to deal with. Johnny Restrup-Sørensen, Contract Director for Railway at Femern A/S, explains the role of the European Railway Traffic Management System (ERTMS) in knitting together the Danish and German train control systems to ensure smooth and safe handover of trains.
- Celebrating 20 years of working together in rail: the EEIG ERTMS Users Group
As the EEIG ERTMS Users Group1 marks its 20th anniversary this year, Managing Director Michel Ruesen gives an overview of how it has evolved over the years, the important role it currently plays in the industry, and how it hopes to continue helping during the years of growth that ERTMS has ahead.
- ERTMS goodpractice sharing
Fact-finding visits to railways around the world can be beneficial for each party to learn and share information on good-practice and techniques. As Chris Carson, Head of Rail Industry Partnership Working at Virgin Trains East Coast explains, this approach has been adopted by the train operator who is committed to continuously developing this approach to play its part and add value to the future signalling programme on the UK railway network.
