Designing a railway project is in itself a complex process, which requires diverse skills: it addresses transport, infrastructure and system issues.
But the endeavour becomes even more complex if the project poses the objective to communicate with the territory: designing a railway infrastructure means also minimising environmental impact, offer structural and geotechnical solutions that do not compromise the hydrogeological layout, provide appropriate measures for the containment of ‘noise pollution’; it also means paying close attention to railway safety.
Here at NET we believe that today, this approach is necessary/unavoidable: the success of a project is strictly related to its ability to interact with the territory, its potential be understood and shared with its various stakeholders.
The railway sector has recently experienced an important evolution: market liberalisation has opened new and exciting opportunities, but it also requires specialised skills. The ability to analyse and understand the transport demand is fundamental requisite for the acquisition of new train paths, their integration into time tables, the proposal of a new transport service that must meet a market’s demand while ensuring profitability.
Here at NET we are able to provide specialised support for the various activities related to the selection, procurement, construction and final acceptance of different types of trains destined for various transport services, both on a metropolitan, regional and national level.
From the definition of the operational model to the direct participation and technical assistance during the type/serial tests, up to the auditing of the technical documentation and delivery certificates verifying their compliance with the technical specifications.
