Alstom has been awarded by Trafikverket, the Swedish transport administration, a contract worth €66 million to implement the Iconis control centre solution. The new traffic management system will cover the entire country, and forms part of a broader project by Trafikverket to improve the punctuality and capacity of its network. The scope of the contract, which will run for eight years with an additional nine-year option, also covers the development and maintenance of the system.
"We are very pleased to have met all the demanding commercial and technical criteria set by Trafikverket. With traffic management systems in operation across Europe and the ongoing Denmark re-signalling and traffic optimisation, Alstom is building on its experience and strengthening its position as supplier of proven and reliable railway solutions in Sweden and the Nordic region", says Per Öster, Managing Director for Alstom Transport in the Nordics.
Iconis is a mature and well established product with many references in commercial operation. Alstom’s Iconis Mainline control centre solution integrates information, monitoring, control and optimisation of the entire rail network, allowing for traffic disturbances, management and resource allocation. Alstom’s solution combines the reliability of a standardised product with the necessary flexibility for future evolution. Iconis is a highly configurable product based on open integration technologies that can be adapted to customer requirements, and which accommodates changes and additional features.
