Ansaldo STS, a unit of Finmeccanica Group, has won an €82m signalling contract from the Italian Railway Network (RFI) to carry out part of the technological works on a high-speed rail link between Treviglio and Brescia in Italy.

Ansaldo, as a member of the Consorzio Saturno consortium, will design, build and install signalling and communication systems on the 57km high-speed line, which is currently under construction.

The project includes a 39.6km high-speed route, an 11.7km link to the existing line and 6.9km of dedicated tracks into Brescia’s main station.

Signalling systems include level 2 ERTMS/ETCS and multi-station, while the automation installations comprise high-speed SCC.

The company will also oversee the design and installation of electrical substations, parallel positions and some data management installations for the electrical traction, along with air-conditioning and ventilation of the technical buildings.

Consorzio Saturno is a consortium of Alstom, Ansaldo STS, Balfour Beatty Rail and Sirti; the group is responsible for supplying electrical and mechanical systems for the Treviglio – Brescia section of the Milano – Venezia high-speed line under a €176m contract from RFI.

Cepav Due is carrying out the construction work on the rail line as part of RFI’s Alta Velocità/Alta Capacità programme.

The project includes a 39.6km high-speed route, an 11.7km link to the existing line and 6.9km of dedicated tracks into Brescia’s main station.
