As part of this important contract, AŽD installed also other products on this 50 km line, such as signals type AŽD 70-PL and electromechanical point machines type EP 600 used for operation of turnouts. All elements ensuring the safety of the operated railway traffic route have received approval (Swiadectwo) from the local Railway Authority UTK.
„It was again a very complicated night event, because the infrastructure administrator demanded that the continuity of operation on the railway line be ensured during the transition from the old signalling equipment to the new equipment,“ explains Zdeněk Chrdle, CEO of AŽD.
The remaining Wronki station and the centralised traffic control centre for the entire section, which is designed in Poznań, will be activated during the following year 2021, depending on the progress of the construction companies carrying out parallel infrastructure work in separate contracts.
„Securing the line from Poznan to Szczecin is a strategic project for our company. This is the first installation of Czech technologies on Polish infrastructure, on which we wish to show that we can develop, manufacture and install high-quality products that can withstand comparisons with foreign competitors. AŽD is ready to fight for further contracts on the Polish market, which we consider promising," concludes Zdeněk Chrdle.
