Hitachi Rail has proven to the German Federal Railway Authority and to Deutsche Bahn that their interlocking system is compatible with German SCI (Standard Communication Interfaces) which interfaces the interlocking and operations control center.

The digital interlocking systems are a key aspect in the digitalization transition in rail transportation. This particular upgrade done by Hitachi Rail in Germany will help to improve operational efficiency and reliability by reducing traffic disruption and delays for passengers and freight traffic based on the high-level requirements in Deutsche Bahn.

 Frank Gülicher, Head of Digital Planning and Construction of Infrastructure Projects (Deutsche Bahn AG) and Head of Digital Signalling and ETCS Project Portfolio (DB Netz AG) said: “With the SLP, we want to achieve a market expansion with higher capacities and to gather valuable knowledge for the rollout of “Digitale Schiene Deutschland”. With Hitachi Rail we have found a new partner for our programmer to digitalize the German railway network. We are looking forward to successful cooperation.”

“Schnellläuferprogramm” (SLP) is Germany’s Fast-Track Programme, whose objective is to hastily bring new digital solutions by simplifying processes and promoting close cooperation between supplier and operator throughout the project. The Fast-Track Programme is an initiative of the German government, the rail industry and DB which is designed to help with the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic and is helping to speed up the digitalization of the German railway network.

The specific responsibility for Hitachi Rail lies in upgrading the signalling and seven stations across 60 km of a single track on the Saxony Gera-Weischlitz line.

“The achievement of this important milestone on the SLP Project Gera – Weischlitz line underlines the strong commitment of Hitachi Rail to play a wider role in the DSD programme and support DB as a trusted technology partner,” says Alessandro De Grazia – Managing Director Hitachi Rail STS Germany, Head of DACH Region (Sales & Projects).
