Ansaldo STS will execute works relating to computer-based interlocking system (ACC) of Brescia Central station

Ansaldo STS (STS.MI), a Finmeccanica Company, as lead bidder in a temporary consortium of companies that also includes Coopsette Soc. Coop as principal, has been awarded the tender for the final design and execution of works relating to the computer-based interlocking system (ACC) of Brescia Central station, worth approximately EUR 37 million.
Ansaldo STS’ share of the deal comes to more than EUR 34 million.

The works covered by the contract are intended to integrate Brescia’s railway junction with the high-speed/high-capacity interconnection of the Treviglio - Brescia stretch of the future Milan-Verona HS line.
This important railway junction will therefore be upgraded through the construction of a single new ACC, which will enable – thanks to its flexibility and scalability – the current equipment of Bivio Mella, Brescia Scalo and Brescia Central to be gradually replaced.

The new ACC is considered in the “extra size” category. The complexity of movements within the station areas also requires the installation of a movement supervision system (SSA-CR).

This system will be also remotely displayed at Milano Greco Pirelli station, where, as part of a different contract, Ansaldo STS is building the new Multistation Operations Room for the centralized management of all the stations on the Turin-Padua Conventional railway line.

The project also includes the construction of new buildings to accommodate the equipment, the new SCMT (Italian Railway Management System), new telecommunications system, and lighting and power system.
