Teltronic to Supply TETRA Radios to Locomotive Manufacturer
Thursday, August 06, 2020 | Comments

Stadler, which received a contract to manufacture and supply 60 new locomotives for VR Group, the government-owned railway company in Finland, selected Teltronic as provider of the on-board TETRA equipment for the locomotives.

Specifically, Teltronic will supply a total of 60 units of the RTP-300, EN50155 / EN45545 compliant and compact on-board radio equipment, which offers voice and data services as well as a set of functionalities that enable its integration with other railway subsystems.

In addition, another 60 units of the RCC-3000, an advanced touchscreen control console, as well as the necessary audio accessories for drivers to develop their voice communications, will be supplied.

The equipment has already proven its efficiency in previous projects where VR Group opted for the change from GSM-R technology to TETRA and where Teltronic was also selected to provide its on-board equipment.

"This project means the consolidation of our presence in Finland, a pioneer country in the implementation of TETRA in railway environments and in which Teltronic already has different successful experiences,” said Felipe Sanjuán, Teltronic's director of transport business development. “With this new reference, we are strengthening our links with Stadler, a company to which we are grateful for their confidence and with which we hope to continue collaborating in the future.”

The 60 new diesel-electric locomotives, which will be manufactured in Valencia, can be used as shunting locomotives and for hauling freight and passenger trains, and will enable improved operational efficiency in marshaling yards, freight terminals and on non-electrified lines which make up 45 percent of the Finnish rail network.
