Strategy for renewal investments in train protection

An article by Dr.-Ing. Lars Schnieder and Alexander Baum, among others, was published in the February issue of the trade magazine “DER EISENBAHNINGENIEUR”.

“Stadtwerke Verkehrsgesellschaft Frankfurt am Main mbH (VGF) is responsible for subway and streetcar services in the Main metropolis. Like many other public transport operators, VGF is facing massive investment in its signaling infrastructure over the next decade. Technologically obsolete systems must be replaced with modern technology and the network adapted to new and increasing traffic requirements. Both securing the necessary funding and the optimal timing of the measures are key objectives here. This article presents the results of a systematic life cycle cost-oriented technology decision for train control systems based on a comprehensive asset management database.”
