Mumbai Railway Vikas Corporation (MRVC), a state-run project company controlled by Indian Railways, awards the largest contract for axle counting systems in recent years to a consortium under the technical leadership of Frauscher Sensortechnik.

The contract encompasses system design, delivery, installation, testing and commissioning of the axle counting system ACS2000 in 19 stations on the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Mumbai (CSTM)-Thane, Kalyan & Ravli Junction Yard line within the Mumbai Division of the Central Railway, and in the Jogeshwari area within the Mumbai Division of the Western Railway. The contract involves fitting out more than 1,000 track sections with the latest wheel sensor technology from Frauscher.

“For us, this success constitutes a further milestone in the long-term expansion of our market position within the strategic growth markets of China, India and Russia. Over the coming years, our aim is to unlock a significant share in the wheel detection and axle counting sector of the Indian railway and metro market,” explained Michael Thiel, managing director of Austrian-based Frauscher Sensortechnik.
