Thales: will provide Seltrac CBTC to Santiago metro.

(CercleFinance.com) - Thales has announced that Santiago, the capital of Chile, has selected its Seltrac CBTC train control system (Communication-Based Train Control) for its new automatic metro trains of lines 3 and 6 which will extend over 37 km, with 28 stations.

The group explains that its Seltrac CBTC system enables trains to operate in total autonomy, at intervals of 90 seconds, ensuring maximum safety and efficiency on the entire route.

This also provides a guarantee of reducing operating costs over the long term, and benefiting from significant savings in traction power, thanks to extremely innovative braking and kinetic energy recovery systems, it continued.
