Siemens to supply control centers to Korea National Railway

Siemens Smart Infrastructure has won a contract to deliver the main control centers, based on Spectrum Power, to the Korean engineering company EntechWorld headquartered in Seoul.

“A stable and reliable power supply for the rail infrastructure is key to ensuring a safe, fast and comfortable travel or commuting experience. Our software could be described as the brain of the energy supply for the complex railway network. This helps our customer Korea National Railway optimize their business while at the same time dealing with the challenge of ensuring smooth, reliable operation of traction power supply and station facilities,” said Sabine Erlinghagen, CEO of Digital Grid at Siemens Smart Infrastructure.  
The scope of supply for the end customer Korea National Railway encompasses the main control center and the backup control center, which will control and monitor general power of the railway network and ensure a smooth, reliable and economic operation of the traction power supply for the locomotives. A special feature of the control center for Korea National Railway is the integrated network analysis system which makes sure that the entire power supply operates without interruptions and that potential faults are detected at a very early stage. In addition, Siemens offers an Operator Training Simulator (OTS) to help Korea National Railway personnel take advantage of the many different applications of the control center, including intelligent interlocking and switching procedure management with process element disposal locking.
