The complex interdependencies of signalling, telecommunications, power supply and other safety-critical equipment and systems pose real challenges for operators and manufacturers. As an Independent Safety Assessor (ISA), TÜV SÜD provides independent assessment services of generic products and generic and specific applications in accordance with European standards and IEC standards. They assist operators and manufacturers in the development and implementation of the European Train Control System (ETCS) as well as Communication-based Train Control (CBTC) solutions. The services are supported by proprietary tools including SIGNON SATvalid, a tool for the recording and automatic validation of ETCS route data. Together with SIGNON, TÜV SÜD also supports construction companies in designing and implementing challenging metro and rail projects with SIGNON Suite software Tools.
Rail operators in India and worldwide are facing the challenge of having to create additional capacities in passenger and freight transport and further improving operational reliability while cutting costs. Refurbishment of rolling stock offers rail operators an interesting alternative to purchasing new rail vehicles. Extended life time of existing rolling stock promises the best possible use of investments. TÜV SÜD offers special refurbishment services, e.g. safety related assessments of refurbishment measures and quality assurance.
