Ansaldo STS has been awarded an 82 million euro signalling contract for a high-speed link between Treviglio and Brescia in Italy.
The Finmeccanica Company will deliver the work for the Italian Railway Network (RFI) as a member of consortium Consorzio Saturno.
Ansaldo will design, build and install signalling and communication systems on the 57 km railway line.
Ansaldo is directly responsible for designing, building and installing electrical substations, parallel positions and some data management installations for the electrical traction and for air conditioning.
After winning the tender for the Brescia Central station’s computer-based interlocking system (ACC), Ansaldo STS will carry out, through this contract, all the main works entrusted by the Italian Railway Network in the reorganisation of the Turin-Padua main transversal railway line.
