“When I first met ERTMS Solutions, I had very specific requirements for ERTMS testing and maintenance, and ERTMS Solutions was the only company able to provide me with a relevant solution, within our quality, budgets and timing criteria.
I really appreciate the collaboration with ERTMS Solutions. They listen to their clients’ needs and bend over backwards to provide a product which really answer their customers’ needs. Whether they totally create the suitable solution, or they show the flexibility to adapt their products; all in all, they always closely follow the project and are always reactive in case of problem.
Timing and reactivity are very important in maintenance because the intervention slots are very short and cancellations very expensive. ERTMS Solutions always reacted quickly and efficiently.
We need more and more tools to reduce the testing and the maintenance phases’ duration. In the EM203, we have recently set up the SignalsVisibilityCheck and the BaliseLifeCheck.
The SignalsVisibilityCheck is a semi-automatic tool enabling to spare time and efforts on checking if signals are visible to the driver, according to local legal requirements.
The second tool is the Realtime Balise Monitor, a BaliseLifeCheck extension that fulfils the mapping of the balises deployed across the network, monitor their status and reports the information directly to the General Maintenance System. Any potential (or manifested) problem generates an alarm to trigger the maintenance activity.
I really recommend ERTMS Solutions. They are combining innovation and flexibility, and they show extremely competitive advantages.”
