Upgrade of locomotives with onboard ETCS equipment


The Action aims at upgrading the ETCS onboard equipment of the locomotive fleet of RBS Asset Finance Europe Ltd, which will enable the latter to offer leases of locomotives suitable to operate on ERTMS fitted lines and in particular the Corridors set out in the European Deployment Plan.


Precisely, the Action will make it possible for 45 existing locomotives to operate across all SRS version 2.3.0d fitted routes (at L1 and 2 with interoperable ETCS) thereby allowing the effective use of ETCS.
