At the “sti-event“ 2016 the systransis team went to Zurich. There they followed up with an exciting scavenger hunt organized by Foxtrail. The team had to follow green hints until the goal was eventually reached.
Later on they continued with cooking lessons at Jane's Finefood. Everyone was doing work and in the late evening there was a delicious meal with partners.
On 1 June 2016 the Gotthard Base Tunnel opened (57 km – worlds longest tunnel). This revolutionary tunnel brings North and South closer together.
New rolling stock, more frequent and faster connections also ensure more trains on the north-south axis and the freight gets a real performance boost.
It is self-explanatory, that security is he key element in such a tunnel in which 200 trains drive up to 250 km/h. The tunnel tubes are connected with cross passages every 300 meters to which train passengers can escape in case of fire. In both emergency stops, each 600-meter long and located per tunnel tube, an evacuation up to 1000 people is possible.
Systransis AG contributed the Tunnel Automatic Gotthard (TAG), a component of the Train Traffic Control System (containing TAG and Iltis). TAG controls the trains by means of safety-critical systems in which an additional direct process interface to the disposition system exists. It increases the safety of the daily operation by monitoring and controlling train movements permanently. In the event of an incident it automatically stabilizes the situation.
