Thales offers one of the most reliable and comprehensive
portfolios of rail and public ground transportation solutions
on the market.
Thales provides safety and security solutions for ground transportation infrastructure including mainline railways and urban transport. During the recent years, Thales has established itself as a significant technology supplier for public transportation in Norway in Rail Signalling and Traffic Management Systems.
Thales’ development of the Norwegian transportation has included ticketing systems, communication system for Bybanen and axle counters to BaneNOR. Proven technology solutions combined with local presence have contributed to making traveling by train safer and more reliable for the public. In 2012, Thales was awarded a contract to deliver new signalling solutions for Norwegian railways through an agreement with Bane NOR. The latest of the six deliveries in the project was “Farriseidet-Porsgrunn” in 2019. The new “Follobanen” will have Thales’ SignAn when it opens.
In 2018, Thales initiated the delivery on the contract covering a new Traffic Management System (TMS) to BaneNOR. TMS is a large step in the process of digitalization of the Norwegian railway systems.
