Automation, the keystone in the new Afragola-Naples (LAN) metro line

PROJECT OF THE CAMPANIA AGENCY ACAMIR LED BY IDOM IN A JOINT VENTURE WITH LOCAL PARTNERS, TECNOSISTEM AND ROCKSOIL.

The new Afragola–Naples Metro line (LAN) will connect the Afragola High Speed Station with the Plaza Cavour node, located in the center of the city where lines 1 and 2 of the current transport system converge.

One of the keystones of this project of the Campania Agency ACAMIR led by IDOM in a joint venture with local partners, TecnoSistem and Rocksoil, is automation, unattended train operation using GoA 4 automation to move the trains on the line, as well as for most of their maneuvers towards outdoor enclosures, such as Depots or SideTracks.

Together with automation, the project will have the best standards of security and comfort for users, making the LAN line one of the most modern in southern Italy. At IDOM we strive to develop designs and projects that contribute to the achievement of the United Nations sustainable development goals, considering the entire life cycle, producing resilient and safe solutions.

This type of technology has been implemented in other projects around the world, such as Line 3 of the Riyadh Metro (Saudi Arabia) or Lines 3 and 6 of the Santiago Metro (Chile).
