MPC-I modernization on eastern Baikal-Amur Mainline Railway continues

Specialists of R&D Company Promelectronica have concluded the efforts to overhaul the MPC-I computer-based interlocking system on 323 km Siding and Lyudyu Station in Khabarovsk Territory. Modernization of the previously installed system was necessary due to opening of the second track of the line of Far Eastern Railway.

Specialists of the Far Eastern Office of Promelectronica have updated MPC-I Software and made changes to the UKC interlocking controller to conform to the current configuration. Moreover, the system was integrated with the computer-based automatic block system. Modernization increased the number of controlled objects on both facilities – now 6 points and 11 light signals are controlled on Lyudyu Station and 9 points and 15 light signals are controlled on 323 km Siding.

Komsomolsk-on-Amur – Vanino line, where the double-track 323 km Sidiging – Lyudyu Station is located, is considered one of the most adverse sections of the Eastern Railway. The efforts to open the second track are necessary to double the throughput of trains and it shall be achieved by the end of this year.

The last month specialists of the Far Eastern Office of Promelectronica modernized MPC-I computer-based interlocking on Gurskoye Station due to opening of the second track on Gurskoye – Pochepta haul, which is one of the most traffic intensive sections of the Baikal-Amur Mainline Railway
