Installation, Testing and Commissioning

Delivering the complete signalling project implementation cycle

We provide signalling installation, testing, and commissioning services for the rail industry.

We wholly oversee the project implementation cycle. Our team of on-site staff, comprising safety, project management, engineering, and technical resources, actively participates in installing, testing, and commissioning the solutions. If necessary, we oversee and assume accountability for the civil work needs handled by subcontracted partners.

The entire on-site process is carried out with our unwavering focus on safety, quality, and timely project completion, culminating in acceptance testing, comprehensive system testing, and commissioning conducted according to rigorous testing procedures.

We analyse the installation requisites and ensure that our on-site operations align with the time, budget, logistical, and environmental constraints within the railway.
