Siemens to renew the railway traffic remote control system in Southeast Finland  

The Finnish Transport Agency employs several railway traffic management systems that are integral in traffic control. The new remote control system will be linked with interlocking and IT systems, with interfaces for the Finnish Transport Agency's train traffic management systems.
  • Large amounts of data will be exchanged between the remote control system and railway traffic IT systems. This project will boost the efficiency of rail traffic control and management, helping to keep trains on schedule and improve information offered to travelers, says Jari Jussila, technical director from Siemens Osakeyhtiö.

The project will be run in close cooperation with the end user, Finrail Oy. Finrail is responsible for traffic control services on the state-owned rail network.
  • We can manage exceptional situations better and recover faster from traffic disturbances than with the old system, concludes Juha Lehtonen, head of Mobility Division from Siemens Osakeyhtiö.

The project will be kicked off immediately. The new system will be launched in stages up to summer 2022.
