“Zaporizhstal” implements a digital communication in rail transport manage-ment


“Zaporizhstal” which belongs to Metinvest Group modernizes a communication system at rail transport. Within the scope of transition from analog to digital communication the Works purchased 225 Motorola radio stations for dispatchers and locomotive brigades. Investments in project implementation made 3,2 mln. uah.

The new digital radios comply with Metinvest unified standards for the development of process radio communica-tion systems. Devices ensure stable, high-quality data transmission, which is a key factor in the organisation of safe shunting and train operations of the Works railway transport. Besides, the new radios are more energy-efficient and reliable in operation.

“Digitalization of communication enables efficient planning of all technological processes, improving work in rail traffic management. It is the operation of traction rolling stock, wagon fleet, infrastructure and interaction with related functions. And most important is that stable and high-quality communication ensures the safety of our employees during their work – noted Transport & Logistics Director of “Zaporizhstal” Oleg Adamanov.

As a reminder, “Zaporizhstal” was the first among Ukrainian industrial enterprises to introduce a modern infor-mation and dispatching system for rail transport management, due to which the visualisation system has been improved.
