ENSCO Rail Deploys Autonomous Track Geometry and Rail Profile Measurement Systems to Rumo SA

ENSCO Rail recently delivered its second Autonomous Track Geometry Measurement System (ATGMS) and Autonomous Rail Profile Measurement System (ARPMS) to Brazilian logistics company Rumo SA, the largest transport and logistics company in Latin America.

The systems are installed on an existing freight car dedicated to track condition evaluation to continuously monitor track geometry and rail wear conditions to detect unsafe track conditions and optimize maintenance planning.

The autonomous systems operate more frequently than traditional manned systems without the need for an onboard crew. The increased inspection frequency and advanced data analytics enable early detection of degrading track network conditions to optimize maintenance and renewal planning.

“We are proud to continue to support Latin America’s largest transport and logistics company in its pursuit of improved infrastructure, safer rail transport and reduced maintenance costs,” says ENSCO president Boris Nejikovsky. “The Latin American transportation and logistics market is expanding, and we are enthusiastic about ENSCO Rail contributions to improving its existing infrastructure and preparing for future growth.”

The Rumo SA freight rail network operates in Brazil with headquarters in Curitiba, where the business is predominantly comprised of agricultural commodities and industrial products. The company provides rail transportation, load handling and storage services in São Paulo and Brazil’s southern region.

Accurate and reliable track geometry measurement data is essential for immediate and long-term maintenance planning.
