Recent projects

  • We have undertaken numerous tests to verify the reliable functioning of all of the systems present on the Betuweroute – a 160-km, double-track freight rail line stretching from the port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands to the German border at Zevenaar-Emmerich. The testing and verification process resulted in incremental improvements to the line's systems
  • We carried out certification of the Protos train sets for operation in the Netherlands for German supplier FTD – Fahrzeugtechnik Dessau AG. The work included brake and running gear tests, as well as noise tests and tests of the pantograph
  • We have undertaken several infrastructure and rolling stock testing projects for various clients who wish to use the Amsterdam-Brussels High-Speed Line
