India has decided to use a Turkish-made broken rail detection system to prevent accidents, a Turkish engineering company’s official said.
Haluk Gokmen, general director of ENEKOM, said the company began cooperation with India’s Railtech Infraventure Pvt. Ltd. Company (Railtech).
“India is a country that has one of the longest railways in the world. The lines are constantly being renewed and new lines are added to the existing ones. Due to their extensive usage, they need a fast, efficient and secure detection system”, Gokmen told Anadolu Agency on Tuesday.
The system will initially be tested on a 50-kilometer (31 miles) rail line in India on the first quarter of 2018, and then be extended across the country.
Gokmen said that the system is “unique” because it is not affected by external factors and different climatic conditions.
“RailAcoustic” -- a system patented in Turkey, U.S., India, China, and Japan -- can perceive a fracture or a crack on the rails.
