In April Ansaldo STS chose to participate to two conferences in Amsterdam and London to promote specific projects and technologies towards rail and metro industry.
At Smart Rail Europe conference, in Amsterdam, Ansaldo STS and partners explained the project South Europe Atlantic (302 km HSL with ERTMS signalling solutions that links Tours and Bordeaux - France) inaugurated by French president F. Hollande in March and which is due to start passenger services in 2 July. This HSL project is the biggest rail investment in Europe so far, and Ansaldo STS took part of it.
In Metro Rail, in London, Ansaldo STS has chosen also to promote the ERTMS level 2 solution implemented in Etihad project (264 km Freight line that links Shah and Habshan to the port of Ruwaias - UAE) as well as the turnkey metro references around the world. Etihad project is the “vitrine” to showcase Ansaldo STS’ freight technology and capabilities in the Middle East.
The next “rendez-vous” of Ansaldo STS with the global rail industry in May will be exciting as well and will highlight Ansaldo STS’s know-how and expertise in UK (Railtex), Canada (UITP) and Iran (Iran Rail Expo).
