The urban area of Valenciennes is starting the third step of the deployment for its tramway network which has the particularity to have a single track section.
The urban area of Valenciennes chose to integrate a solution to secure the crossing of this section by the tramway.
The system should automatically trigger an emergency stop if the tramway crosses a red signal.
Thus, KFS SIL2 (SIL2 certified by Certifer under reference ECI_1462_0005 – 26/10/2010 and developed by ClearSy) was chosen to equip 28 CITADIS trains (ALSTOM) and to protect 28 signals.
The equipment is currently being installed and tested by INEO.
