Mipro is modernising eastern Finland's marshalling yards:

The renewal of Kotka marshalling yard signalling system will start in the early summer of 2018

Mipro Oy has entered into an agreement with the Finnish Transport Agency on the renewal of a signalling system for the Kotka marshalling yard in eastern Finland. Mipro’s scope of delivery includes the signalling system from control locations up to track equipment for the Kotka operating points Hovinsaari, Tavara, Asema and Satama.

The project will start in the early summer of 2018 and will be completed by the end of 2019. The total value of the marshalling yard project is 12 million euros of which the share of Mipro’s signalling system contract is 3.1 million euros.

The Kotka marshalling yard signalling system is part of FTA’s signalling renewal projects, and a so-called additional funding target. Mipro’s and FTA’s previous contract covers the renewal of signalling systems for Niirala, Kotolahti-Mussalo in Kotka, and Vainikkala marshalling yards. The first of these marshalling yard renewals was commissioned in the beginning of December in 2017, the next two ones will be commissioned during this year.

”The goal of the signalling renewal projects is to enhance traffic operations and improve safety. We highly appreciate the possibility to continue to be involved in the modernisation of eastern Finland’s marshalling yards and in the development of Finnish rail traffic on the whole,“ says Mrs. Suvi Hyyryläinen, Director, Projects at Mipro.
