National Railway Signaling Project | Turkey is getting rid of the black box solution

Turkey is getting rid of the black box solution: Net Engineering by TurkeyHIMA Safety PLCThanks to the National Railway Signaling Project (UDSP) developed for TCDD in partnership with İTÜ -TÜBİTAK, our country is getting rid of black box solutions received from abroad.

The National Railway Signaling Project (UDSP) is a very important and serious work and thanks to the project, the country's foreign dependence on this issue will be eliminated as well as a significant reduction in the meaning of the cost of the Net Engineering Automation A.Ş. General Manager Alper Güçlü, told us about how they started projects in the railway sector, the gains that will be achieved with the UDSP project developed without being dependent on foreign countries, and the applications that the firm supports.

2009 year at Istanbul Technical University and TUBITAK end users National Railway Signaling Project developed for TCDD its work on the railway signaling in Turkey (UDSP) and that they are beginning Alper strong following was passed: "That we are dependent on the purpose abroad in the project railway develop signaling systems as local and TCDD had its own domestic system. Net Engineering Automation as we tried to do our best to contribute by informing along with Germany regarding the supply and support of products we HIMA Safety PLC is representative of Turkey. The project partners, academicians at the Technical University and engineers at TÜBİTAK deemed it appropriate to use HIMA Safety PLC systems at the end of an intensive research and evaluation process. The two institutions have developed independent software and developed the most suitable local software for TCDD requirements. Adapazarı Mithatpaşa station was designed as a pilot project and field installations, commissioning and factory acceptance tests were carried out without any problems. After the local system was tried at Mithatpaşa station during the 15 month, the request of Binali Yıldırım, the Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, and the order of Süleyman Kahraman, General Director of TCDD, were started on Aydın-Denizli line. Field studies were also carried out for the Afyon-Isparta-Denizli line.


Orum Thanks to this project, the country's foreign dependency on this issue will be eliminated as well as a significant decrease in the meaning of the cost will be achieved. Ilığı We are left alone with black box solutions because they do turn-key works from abroad. Since there is no problem in the systems after the operation, we cannot continue the operation safely. In order to solve the problem, we are obliged to take the service from abroad, we have to wait for the date when the foreign companies give us a date and we are paying very serious money for this. In the same way, we are facing the same problems when there is any expansion. However, thanks to the developed domestic signaling system, the trained domestic work force can be used in accordance with the desired program. Domestic signaling system installed lines can be easily commissioned by Turkish engineers by adding PLC modules with additional I / O numbers calculated when it is desired to expand in the future. Yer

In order to better explain the material aspect of the case, Alper Bey shared the cost calculation in the article by Mehmet Turşak, the President of TCDD's Head Office in the Kardelen Magazine, which was published by TCDD. This cost will be approximately 165 million TL, and when this is done with the domestic system, this cost decreases to approximately 65 million TL. In Turkey, xnumxkm signal line is made with non-native system which will remain safe in the Republic of Turkey in the approximate amount of around £ 6.100 billion. Considering the Middle East and Turkic Republics, it is not a dream that we will be able to move to the position of exporting the systems we import.


As with all HIMA solutions, the principle of Net Engineering Automation in railway solutions is defined as demiryolu uninterrupted safety fir. Olur HIMA solutions not only provide permanent safety, but also help to ensure uninterrupted and safe system / plant operation by avoiding unnecessary stops. Safety railways are indispensable for signaling systems. The rules that must be followed in order to achieve the required safety level, including the IEC 61508 umbrella standard, EN 50126 (reliability, availability, maintanance and safety analysis), EN 50128 and EN 50129 standard). HIMA HIMATROT and HIMAX Safety PLC products used in railways have SIL4 (safety integrity level) safety certificate which defines the highest safety class according to CENELEC standards. Demir


Alper Guclu, the main applications they can support their customers in the railways sector; Signalization, level crossings, safety applications on the vehicle, station safety, safe cornering, gauge control, side detection sensors in tunnels, kataner line checks and rail quality controls; making software on all of the products of these applications can be developed locally in Turkey; Even many domestic companies by implementing these applications in their own by implementing many important projects stressed.
