DANISH infrastructure manager Banedanmark has selected Alstom to deliver its Atlas ERTMS onboard signalling solution to train operators across the Danish network.

The €61m contract follows a framework agreement signed between Alstom and Banedanmark in March and involves equipping 503 vehicles. The previous contract was worth €140m and encompasses the deployment of Atlas on 789 trains operated on the Fjernbane network.

Alstom says it will take eight years to rollout the solution, including two years dedicated to design with its team in Charleroi, Belgium, working with Banedanmark in Copenhagen.
