Siemens Mobility and
the Slovak rail vehicle manufacturer ŽOS Vrútky are retrofitting up to 41
locomotives of the Czech railway company ČD Cargo a. s. with ETCS Level 2.
The locomotives of the
130 series will be equipped with the Siemens Mobility ETCS solution Trainguard
200 Onboard Unit for trans-European freight operation across Poland, the Czech
Republic and Slovakia. The retrofit project will cover the integration of the
ETCS onboard unit equipment, as well as the interface solution to the existing
national train control (NTC) systems. Interface solutions enable cost-optimized
retrofitting of rail vehicles for smooth and safe cross-border operation.
Siemens Mobility is an
experienced and reliable ETCS onboard unit partner with ETCS retrofit references
throughout Europe. Trainguard 100/200 OBU is a scalable ETCS solution that can
be adapted to any type of rail vehicle.
