Rail supplier news from Nomad Digital, Loram, Keolis and Eno Center (June 14)


Nomad Digital has procured, designed and implemented a WiMAX trackside system to support operationally critical signaling communications for the Regional Transportation District of Denver's Eagle P3 commuter-rail project. Through a strategic partnership with Wabtec Corp.’s Xorail, Nomad has designed the on-board and trackside components of the WiMAX track-to-shore communications system. The system leverages Nomad's IP technology and connects the fleet of rail cars to 50 trackside WiMAX transmission sites. In addition, the system enables the delivery and management of critical operational applications, such as positive train control, closed-circuit television, passenger emergency information, public announcements and maintenance data systems, according to Nomad.

Burton also will provide leadership and support to the operations team to ensure the company operates all track maintenance services in a safe, reliable and cost-effective manner, Loram officials said in a press release. Burton joined the company in 2006 and has been "instrumental" in enabling growth in the company's OEM contract services and after-market sales worldwide, they added.
