Romania’s state railway carrier CFR SA signed a contract worth RON 55.2 million (EUR 12.5 million) Vat included with Alstom Transport – Pas 97 Impex joint venture, for the projection and execution of a system for detecting overheated axle boxes and close brakes, which will operate in the vicinity of 21 railway stops.

“This system controls, registers (the thermal state) and detects axle boxes, brake discs and the bandages of the wheels whose temperature is higher than permitted deviations. In each case, the DCOS device will automatically trigger different alarms depending on the temperatures and will send the signal to the locomotive’s board, through radio, as well as to a central surveillance station, in order to assess how serious is the detected anomaly and to take action accordingly,” reads a CFR SA press release quoted by Mediafax.

The system will be implemented near the following stops: Saligny, Baraganu, Dragos Voda, Branesti, Crivina, Valea Larga, Baile Sarata Monteoru, Cotesti, Sascut, Secuieni Roman, Targu Frumos, Vinga, Jabar, Teregova, Drobeta Turnu Severin Est, Racari, Movila, Murgeanca, Vadu Lat, Maldaieni and Grozavesti.

The contract, funded by external grants (71.1 percent) and by the state budget (28.8 percent), will last for 53 months, out of which 29 months are allotted to execution and 24 months to warranty.
