SOCOFER and ERTMS Solutions are joining their competences to bring more added value to railways maintenance.
From now on, all future railway maintenance vehicles of SOCOFER will be ready to embed ERTMS Solutions’ LifeCheck preventive maintenance set of tools (BaliseLifeCheck and TrackCircuitLifeCheck). SOCOFER will be able to provide its clients with fully equipped vehicles that automate the electromagnetic track assets maintenance.
The LifeCheck product line is a preventive maintenance set of tools, which equips any type of trains, fitted or not with ETCS. It automates the track asset maintenance; it enables to generate alarms and produce extremely detailed signal quality information and reports when it passes over a balise (eg. Eurobalises) or any types of track circuits (eg. TVM430).
SOCOFER and ERTMS Solutions have already collaborated on the implementation of LifeCheck products for their common client, MESEA, the company ensuring the maintenance of the French High-Speed line SEA (Sud Europe Atlantique Tours – Bordeaux). Two “Broom” vehicles are indeed being equipped with BaliseLifeCheck and TVMLifeCheck kits (read previous article).
With this first success, it became obvious to partner with SOCOFER to build other success stories.
The agreement between SOCOFER and ERTMS Solutions contains also a full compatibility agreement. This means that, next to the ERTMS Solutions’ LifeCheck product line, other ERTMS Solutions’ products will be easily installed in SOCOFER’s vehicles, like the ERTMSCamCorder, Onboard Monitoring Box and other existing or future tools.
