SYSTRA to be at MetroRail Conference in London

SYSTRA gives you an appointment on May 26th and 27th in London for MetroRail Conference: the Group will present its know-how in automated metros, and experts from SYSTRA will be on site.

Automated Mass Rapid Transit is one of the specialties of SYSTRA and the group is its world leader: today, one on two automated metros is designed by our teams. Our experience has been built especially with the design of the first 100% automated MRT in Paris (Line 14) and the automatization of an existing MRT (Line 1).

SYSTRA’s expertise in automated MRT networks is deployed all over the world, with the construction of several lines including the longest of its king at the present time, the Red Line of Dubai MRT. Projects of automated metros are numerous, with new lines in France (Grand Paris Express), Saudi Arabia (Riyadh), and modernizations of existing lines in Chile (Line 1 of Santiago, for turnarounds) and in Belgium (Lines 1 and 5 in Brussels in the future).

With 80 spokespersons, more than 400 visitors coming from 40 countries, MetroRail is a major conference for transports. SYSTRA presents its know-how, and our experts will participate to roundtables. Among the topics discussed, maintenance vehicles on driverless lines, and the application of smart grids in railway networks and their optimization.
