AŽD signed a contract for delivery of control-command signalling systems for Serbian railway line Subotica – Horgoš

The Czech company AŽD succeeded in its tender for the supply of control-command signalling systems for the Subotica - Horgoš railway line (Hungarian border with Serbia). The main contractor of the project is a consortium of companies “Karin komerc MD Doo Veternik” and “RZD International” and AŽD will realize its deliveries as a subcontractor. The value of the AŽD scope of supply is 11.5 million EUR and the implementation will take 11 months.

AŽD will install the microprocessor based station interlocking systems ESA-44 in four railway stations (Javna Skladišta, Palič, Bački Vinogradi and Horgoš) as a part of the modernization project in Serbia. The delivery also includes the securing of 26 turnouts, the installation of axle counters and 44 modern LED signals in all mentioned railway stations. The whole line will be equipped with the European Train Control System ETCS level 1 from AŽD production.

“Serbia has long been one of the strategic territories where our company supplies modern signalling technologies for the railways. We will continue to strive for contracts in our field of activity and prove the quality of Czech systems,” said Zdeněk Chrdle, CEO of AŽD.

By signing the contract, AŽD confirmed its important position in the Balkans, where, except Serbia, it is currently implementing large-scale projects in Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia.

The subsidiary “AŽD Saobračajni sistemi” from Belgrade will play a significant role in implementation of line signalling systems on the Subotica - Horgoš line.
