Technology

Italferr designs and develops, to the pre-operational stage, both conventional and innovative railway systems and facilities. Integrated solutions to boost traffic efficiency and safety, while minimising operating and maintenance costs. The use of cutting-edge technology is exemplified by our new traffic command/control system known as ERTMS (European Rail Traffic Management System) – ETCS (European Traffic Control System) Level 2, which was installed for the first time, in Europe, on the Rome-Naples high speed line. This system was subsequently extended to all the High Speed/High Capacity lines in Italy, thus pushing out the boundaries of railway engineering worldwide. This technology has evolved naturally from conventional train safety engineering solutions, a field of paramount importance for the Italian State Railways, regarding which Italferr possesses the all-round know-how. Based on this impressive track record, the new 2x25 kV electrification system has recently been introduced; thanks to its high performance standards it is set to be implemented on the HS/HC sections.
