BRAZIL: Freight operator RUMO has awarded Wabtec Corp a US$5m contract to design, install and commission a train management and dispatching system to improve safety and efficiency at its yard serving the port of Santos.
The scope includes signalling and interlocking integration and staff training. Completion is planned the end of 2018.
‘Wabtec’s relationship with RUMO is extremely strong as a result of the freight products and services for both cars and locomotives that we have been supplying for decades’, said Wabtec President & CEO Raymond T Betler on December 13. ‘The addition of this train control contract allows for even greater collaboration’.
