Our expertise will soon be exported to Finland

As part of its strategic evolution, KRAO (Kouvolan Rautatie ja Aikuiskoulutus Oy, a railway training centre in Finland) requested a brand new simulation room in Kouvola. The latter, called “NewSimu2020”, will include six Nano and six Compact Simulators, an instructor station and observation facilities to train Finnish drivers in the use of the Siemens Vectron Sr3 train and ERTMS.

The Compacts have been designed with interchangeable driving desks which will first be dedicated to Siemens trains. These driving desks can be replaced by other ones, which will enable KRAO to familiarize its staff with other types of rolling stock.

The simulators will incorporate an extremely accurate train model as well as faults/malfunctions defined in collaboration with KRAO. They will also include 106 kilometres of realistic tracks for ERTMS level 1 which will be editable by KRAO thanks to intuitive and quick solutions: the Track Editor Tool and the Signal Editor Tool. While the Track Editor Tool enables our customers to create and edit their own rail network, the Signal Editor Tool allows them to design signals and update the signalling system of their network. The training centre will thus benefit from a significant autonomy regarding its network management.
