Rumo ALL, under a competitive bid, selected ENSCO Rail to supply an Autonomous Track Geometry Measurement System (ATGMS) and Rail Profile Measurement System (RPMS). These systems will be installed in early 2017 on an existing freight car dedicated to track condition evaluation.
The onboard technology will continuously monitor track geometry and rail wear conditions. The information will be offloaded for processing using cellular and other means to the ENSCO TrackIT®, web platform, and GeoEdit 8, desktop software platform. This will be the second Track Measurement Vehicle equipped by ENSCO systems in the Brazilian market.
"ENSCO Rail is proud to continue to grow our presence in Brazil with these systems," states Boris Nejikovsky, President of ENSCO Rail. "The autonomous measurement systems and office and web platforms for data analysis will assist Rumo ALL in improving its existing infrastructure and preparing for future expansion."
Rumo ALL is a 7,500-mile freight rail network operating in Brazil with headquarters in Curitiba, where the business is predominantly comprised of agricultural commodities and industrial products.
