Thales participates in the Eighth International Rail Forum


Thales, Leader in Spain in transport systems and technology, attended this Eighth International Rail Forum presenting their solutions portfolio for Railway Transport.

This International Rail Forum was also a frame to Thales 60-year-celebration of Railway Solutions in Spain, representing a history of technology innovation, whilst projecting their current solutions towards a future for a sustainable transport.

From the foundation in 1951 of Marconi Spain’s Department of Railway Signaling, to Thales current Transport Signaling & Security Solutions, from the first Centralized Traffic Control System (CTC) installed in Spain in 1954 to the advanced signaling and train safety systems installed on Spanish High Speed Lines, Thales has been a pioneer in the technical evolution of railway Safety Systems in Spain.

A recent Transport White Paper published by the European Union, with the slogan “Transport 2050”, gives rise to a future vision and challenges of transport, and -according to UE suggestions- it also makes us conceive railways as the future solution to many of these challenges, achieving so a future “Sustainable Mobility” that has been set out.

A complete history of technology development and innovation that has enabled us to already come to-day with systems and solutions for the future challenges of railway transport.

Thales counts on a complete and large portfolio of systems and solutions of safety and security in the whole railway transport field, for railway, conventional lines and high speed, as well as urban transport –metros and trams-.

Automatic Train Protection (ATP) of Altrac family products for railway networks such as European Train Control System (ETCS), present in the Spanish High Speed Network, Automatic Train Protection Systems (ATP), and Automatic Train Operation (ATO, with or without driver) CBTC Systems, within SelTrac family for metropolitan networks.

Next generation Electronic Interlocking that enables traffic routing in metropolitan and railway networks. Locktrac family.

Centralized Traffic Control Systems, CTC, of NetTrac family for an efficient management of railway traffic from control centers.

Wayside elements like electronic axle-counters, electro-hydraulic point machines, level crossing solutions, etc. of FieldTrac family.

Integrated solutions of supervision and communications that enable intelligent process automation and guarantee communications, as well as personnel and asset protection in different railway installations.

Solutions that help reducing emissions and increase energy efficiency, by means of an intelligent infrastructure management that enables a better planning of mobility to turn railway traffic more attractive for passengers, and more competitive for operators. All in all, a quality, access and reliability increase by means of more intelligence in infrastructure management systems.
