Successfully Implemented Projects

Frauscher is a household name among system integrators and railway operators around the globe. In the past decades, we’ve successfully implemented projects on all continents and under a wide range of technical and climatic conditions – to the complete satisfaction of our customers. Get a fascinating insight into our company. And follow the journey of our wheel sensors and axle counters from the first project drafts to their concrete implementation on the track! 

Tram Huangpu Line 1 | China

Tram Huangpu Line 1 (HP1) line is located in urban areas with high traffic density and passenger volume as well as many level crossings. The adverse weather conditions can cause flooding of the track bed and add to the challenges for reliable system availability and operations. To provide safe and efficient wheel detection on this line, the Frauscher Advanced Counter FAdC was installed with a customised protocol based on the Chinese Standard by Chinese Ministry of Railways.

Maintaining the past, creating the future | UK

The Dean Forest Railway (DFR) operates a historical 7 km passenger service line running north from Lydney Junction to Parkend, in the Forest of Dean. Due to extensions of the line and an additional turnout being added at Parkend, an update and modernisation of the existing train detection and signalling system was necessary. Being a heritage railway, it requires high standards in terms of signalling and safety, whilst maintaining the historical touch of the line.

Axle Counter Overlay System | UK

Between London St Pancras International Station and Farringdon Station, there is a history of frequent flooding through the tunnels that adversely affected the reliability of the existing train detection system. Due to this, the installation was non-operational during large periods. However, being a mainline section and a core route through London, high reciliation to any sort of failures is vital.

Homologation for the Île-de-France tramway network | France

The network of Île-de-France tramways in the region of Paris has been a showcase model of public transport since the line T1 opened in 1992. Over a million passengers use these trams daily and today, the system consists of 11 lines covering over 100 kilometres of track. Over the next years it is planned to expand this network even further. For track vacancy detection, the Frauscher axle counting system is considered as being the ideal solution for this comprehensive network.

Hungary-Serbia Railway Project | Serbia

The Hungary-Serbia Railway Project is an iconic project of the “One Belt One Road” Initiative between China and CEE countries. Frauscher provides not only high-quality solutions but also detailed technical support and clarification.

Chengdu Tram Line 2 | China

Chengdu Tram Line, located in the capital Chengdu City of Sichuan Province, is the first tram line to be operational in the city since 2018. The overall line is Y-shaped, with a total length of 39,3 km and 47 stations. It is also the first line in China to be equipped with the new generation Frauscher Advanced Counter FAdC® that supports the communication protocol FSFB/2. 

FAdC® at Vhodnaya Station | Kazakhstan

ArcelorMittal is responsible for the operation of a dedicated industrial railway infrastructure located in Temirtau, Kazakhstan. At Vhodnaya station, an essential shunting yard, various goods and materials, such as polyester, zinc, aluminium, sinter, iron ore, and coke-chemical products, are loaded and unloaded. The station's robust infrastructure features 64 switching points and 68 signals, necessitating the use of a high-performing train detection system to ensure the safe and efficient management of traffic flow.

FAdC® at Uglerudnaya Station | Kazakhstan

AcelorMittal is the operator of the Uglerudnaya industrial railway station, located in Temirtau, Kazakhstan. The station features a total of 56 switches and 52 track sections to enable the smooth flow of train traffic. To ensure the safety of all trains, an interlocking system is used to establish secure routes for incoming, outgoing, and passing trains. This requires effective traffic management and a dependable train detection system to detect the presence of trains on the tracks.

Tracking Trains in Houston | USA

Houston MetroRail (METRO for short) is comprised of three light-rail lines covering 22 miles. Two-car, low-floor trainsets are powered by overhead catenary and operated on a mix of rail types, including embedded, grooved, concrete, and ballasted track. Harsh weather conditions such as extreme heat, humidity, and storms with heavy rains causing floods are typical for Houston. Combined with the variable track structure this caused significant malfunctions of the wheel sensors of METRO’s signalling system.

Frauscher Train Detection Metro Warsaw

Metro Warsaw | Poland

Metro Warsaw was looking for an alternative to track circuits for the line M2, to increase the availability of public transport by using reliable signalling technology. In the end, the operator even decided to replace the existing track circuits on line M1 with the Frauscher Axle Counter ACS200.
