Indra develops traffic management system for new Irish train control centre

Indra has been awarded a contract for 32 million euros by Iarnród Éireann-Irish Rail, the operator of the Irish rail system, to develop a new train control centre in Dublin.

The contract includes the design, supply, installation and commissioning of a fully integrated rail traffic management system (TMS) and control equipment, as well as its maintenance for 15 years, with the possibility of extending it to 20 years. It also includes training facilities, such as a signalling simulator, as well as providing a backup control centre in a secondary location.

Indra will equip the new rail control centre with an integrated and highly automated control system, based on its Mova Traffic line of solutions. This advanced technology will enable management tasks to be centralized, providing more efficiency and safety while improving passenger service and information, incident resolution procedures and maintenance.
