Modernization of the Portugal National Railways

Over the past few decades, Thales has emerged as a crucial partner in the modernization efforts of the Portuguese Railways Infrastructure, collaborating closely with Infraestruturas de Portugal (infraestruturasdeportugal.pt) since the early 90s. This collaboration began with the introduction of new electronic Interlocking systems and the implementation of state-of-the-art Telecommunications and Passenger Information and Comfort systems.

Thales further solidified its role by spearheading the design and implementation of the Lisbon Operational Control Centre, which currently manages 70% of Portuguese rail traffic. The company played a pioneering role in Portugal, securing the introduction of ETCS L2, initially on the International North Corridor (Beira Alta Line) and the International South Corridor (Évora-Elvas-Caia), and later on in Cascais Line, marking a significant milestone in the history of the national railway.

Benefiting from its extensive expertise and a diverse team of skilled professionals, Thales has successfully positioned itself as the foremost supplier of modern signalling and telecommunications technology within the Portuguese railway network.
