Job title: Testing & Commssioning Engineer
Based at: Brasov / Sighisoara

Alstom in Romania has been present  for over 20 years employing today around 1100 people. Alstom, registered major success in infrastructure, signaling and also services. The long term service agreement for the maintenance of the rolling stock of Metrorex is a major reference and shows the expertise of Alstom in this field. Alstom will continue to grow his business in Romania proposing further services for the local market and export, creating regional hub in Services and Signaling.
The Brasov Sighisoara Project is part of the program of rehabilitation of the line “Brasov-Sighisoara” that is part of the European Corridor IV. The purpose of the project is to increase the running speed from 120 km/h to 160 km/h. The increase of the running speed requires the implementation of “the signalling code with four indications on BLA distances” and of “the signalling system with multi-step speed (MSS) in stations”. The home signals and the departure signals in each station will be relocated, because of the railway track systematization works. The existing train speed control and automatic stopping system (INDUSI) will be maintained for the trains running at speeds up to 120km/h that are not equipped with on-board ETCS unit (OBU). At “green” and “Blinking green” indications, the 500 Hz and 1000/2000 Hz indicators will be passive. For the national and international trains running at speeds up to 160km/h, and equipped with on-board ETCS unit (OBU), the ETCS Level 2 system with GSM-R will be implemented. This system transmits the movement authorization, the speed profile, etc, by GSM-R, to the on-board ETCS unit that controls the train speed.
