December 2015 - Workshop facilities for installation of ERTMS on rolling stock
The ERTMS National Implementation project has issued a rapport regarding the workshop capacity for installation of ERTMS equipment on rolling stock. The rapport brings useful information in connection to the coming procurement and rollout of ERTMS in Norway.
The rapport is based on Bane NOR’s current knowledge of the Norwegian workshop facilities for railway, and cannot be assumed to provide a full and complete overview of said market.
Schedule for tendering process
Bane NOR would like to inform that the tendering process for the projectERTMS National Implementation has been rescheduled and it will now start in Q1 2016. This change is due to the ongoing external quality assurance of the ERTMS project.
The external quality assurance (KS2) is a procedure required by the Norwegian government for validation of larger public investment projects. The KS2 is an comprehensive procedure and its completion has shown to demand more time than expected.
