CAF Signalling Awarded the Renewal of the Valparaíso Metro Control System

Valparaíso Metro has awarded CAF Signalling a contract for the renewal of the Data Acquisition and Control System (SCADA), for all the company’s facilities. The platform covers everything from high voltage substations to network station premises.

This new deal underpins CAF’s presence in the Chilean market where the company has implemented various projects, both for conventional lines, and high density transport and metro networks.

The company will undertake the engineering, supply, installation, commissioning, configuration, integration and testing of the equipment required for the refurbishing of the SCADA on the entire Valparaíso network, by applying its advanced technological solution: The NAOS Integrated Control Centre.

This technology provides real time feedback with ground devices (sensors and actuators), allows for the process to be controlled automatically and provides for management and operation.

The award of the Valparaíso Metro contract secures the company’s foothold in Chile, a priority market in the company’s strategy plan.

CAF Signalling has implemented solutions for various projects in the country on conventional lines of the Government Railways Company Empresa de los Ferrocarriles del Estado (EFE). These include the railway signalling systems and the Centralised Rail Traffic Control Centre (CTC) for the Alameda-Chillan and Concepción lines.
