Bombardier Transportation recently announced that it has received a landmark European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) contract for the first implementation of ERTMS Level 2 technology in Poland. The contract, from PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe and valued at approximately 54 million PLN (14 million euros, $17 million US), involves the supply, installation, testing and commissioning of the BOMBARDIER INTERFLO 450 ERTMS Level 2 onboard and wayside signalling system.

A recognised pioneer in development and deployment of ERTMS systems worldwide, Bombardier is now bringing its ERTMS Level 2 signalling technology to the Polish rail market. The new signalling system will be installed on the section of the E30 main line between Legnica, Wegliniec and Bielawa Dolna and delivery is part of the modernisation programme of the pan-European transport corridors which will ensure interoperability on railway lines in Poland. The system will be developed and delivered by Bombardier Transportation Rail Control Solutions sites in Sweden and Poland, to go into operation in April 2012.

Anders Lindberg, President, Bombardier Transportation Rail Control Solutions, said: “As pioneers of ERTMS technology, we are extremely pleased to win this significant order which strengthens Bombardier’s market lead in ERTMS and brings ETCS Level 2 technology to Poland, extending the network across Europe.”

Bombardier has a strong presence in the development of ERTMS/ETCS technology, with its INTERFLO ERTMS Level 1 and Level 2 solutions in operation or being delivered across Europe and Asia on more than 2,500 vehicles, 11, 000 km of track and in 17 countries.

Bombardier Transportation’s Rail Control Solutions portfolio covers the whole range of BOMBARDIER CITYFLO mass transit solutions, from manual to fully automatic systems as well as communication-based systems. It also provides INTERFLO mainline solutions, from conventional systems to ERTMS level 2 systems. Bombardier solutions encompass a complete palette of wayside and onboard products.
