On the implementation of the project according to the European rules FIDIC AŽD Praha featured as the main supplier of modern signaling technology, local subcontractors were providing certain sub-deliveries in the field of telecommunications, construction works and energy systems.

„AŽD Praha provided design, production, delivery, installation, testing and commissioning of the fully electronic ESA 44-BH station interlocking system at six railway stations and on the line of a total length of 90 km. The remote control system of the whole line DOZ-1 was also part of the delivery," says Petr Žatecký, Director of Foreign Marketing and Trade of AŽD Praha.

The project also included the installation of eleven level crossings, telecommunication devices including telephone exchanges and mobile GSM units, Wi-Fi at stations, etc. It is interesting that AŽD Praha had to completely develop a new version of the Unified Control Place based on customer requirements from which the whole line of Banja Luka – Doboj is controlled.
