As one of the main activities in the Danish Signalling Programme, almost the entire Danish fleet will be equipped with on board ERTMS.

Rambøll has a leading role in the customer installation team responsible for the entire process from survey to fitting roll out. The main activities are:

  • Manage detailed surveys together with supplier and RUs
  • Identify component locations and electrical train interfaces
  • Review of installation documentation
  • Review of installation activities

Rambøll leads the joint Rolling Stock Working Group as the forum for technical clarification between customer, supplier and the RUs.

One of the main challenges is insufficient or unavailable train documentation and variance (e.g. batch deliveries and repairs) within a train class. This constitutes the risk that a train class installation design cannot cover the entire fleet. To reduce the risk the on board project has implemented a train variance mitigation procedure based on 3D scanning of ETCS component locations in the train.

The serial fitting roll out of the Danish fleet will take place 2015-2017.
