Eesti Raudtee, the state-owned company that manages the Estonian railroad network, has awarded Indra a contract to carry out the design, development, implementation, and start-up of the system that will manage and control rail traffic on the 1,214 kilometres of the national railway network.
The contract, which amounts to 18.4 million euros, includes maintenance for two years after the start-up of the last line, scheduled for 2025, opening the door to a long-term collaboration and maintenance.
The new traffic management system is part of an investment plan until 2030 that will take Estonian railway infrastructure to a new quality and safety level. The aim is to automate and digitize the processes related to traffic management: the development of traffic schedules, the management of traffic by train dispatchers and the collection of traffic statistics for analysis.
Indra will implement a complete traffic control and management solution that will include centralized traffic control (CTC), regulation, and planning systems and will be based on the Rail TMS (Traffic Management System) solution, one of Indra's Mova Traffic range of solutions.
