Join us at Rail Live

Rail Live is Spain’s leading international railway focused exhibition and conference, bringing together operators, infrastructure managers, rolling stock manufacturers, researchers and suppliers seeking to promote rail both for people and goods.

A reliable player for green transport on rail

As a trusted partner, we support the transition to the digitalization and sustainability of our customers. Our cutting-edge technology boosts the most energy-efficient way to transport citizens and goods.
In this way, we share the path towards zero net missions as a real contributor actor.

Our Solutions

Our experts will be showcasing advanced technology to facilitate energy-efficient transportation of both citizens and goods.

ETCS L1 – L3

ETCS is a vital pre-requisite for tomorrow’s interconnected future. ETCS enables precise train control, ensuring optimal speed adherence to safety protocols.  Aside from safe train operations, the focus is on efficiency, achieved with increased operational performance and lower energy consumption. 

Our concrete experience from ETCS projects helps our customers to select the optimum operating concept, to cut energy costs, reduce journey times and increase availability.

Driver Advisory System - GreenSpeedTM

Via digitalization and clever software, our goal is to support the ongoing shift towards sustainable, CO2 emission-free rail transportation for both passengers and freight. Rail is already the most eco-friendly mode of transport, but we aspire to do even better.

Our Driver Advisory System (DAS) interprets data and constraints to provide actionable driving advice, optimizing speed profiles within limits, while adhering to the plan. 

C-DAS takes it a step further by handling situations where the original plan is no longer feasible, accommodating new plans received from dispatchers to prevent surprises for drivers. This aids in maintaining smooth traffic flow and preventing network-wide delays.

Track Circuit TTC

The latest generation TTC audio frequency track circuit, developed entirely by Thales in Spain, provides predictive information for the maintenance of the system and ensures the safety of railway operations by detecting the occupation, presence and departure of a train in a given area. Its assembly can be carried out both indoors and in outdoor cabinets, as it has local and remote diagnosis. The solution complements the Thales Axle Counter family to provide the most comprehensive Train Detection Portfolio in the market.

Asset Management

Thales’ new Asset Management System is tailor-made to tackle rail operators’ biggest pain points. First and foremost, it connects to critical assets and enables their centralised monitoring. But it goes further than that. Thanks to our evolved maintenance concept, customers can now use a single platform and a common set of tools to do everything from classic condition monitoring to predictive maintenance and more.
