Signalling & Main Control Automation

In line with country requirement HISTACO defined a new department to work specially on signalling and main control automation systems and equipment for railway, metro and high speed trains. Soon some specialists have been recruited and studies on a locally developed track circuit started. Remarkable results have been achieved after a while and development with a satisfactory pace was planned. 

Beside domestic products, in order for knowledge transfer and also supporting already started projects, HISTACO decided to enter into cooperation with one of the best brands in the world. A strategic study led to the choice of HollySys brand. HollySys is a company located in Singapour active in many different field with a lot of awards from important sources. HollySys has some subsidiaries in each field. Beijing HollySys Co. is specialized to focus on high-speed railway and urban railway automation related business and development. Beijing HollySys offers the system design, installation, testing & commissioning, and maintenance service for users. The company provides complete ground and on-board signalling system for high speed railway, as well as an integrated automation solution including CBTC signalling and SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) system for subway & metro. The core products have been certified SIL4. Its in-house reliability testing centre has achieved ISO/IEC 17025 standards as recognized by TÜV Rheinland, which can ensure the reliability of products by testing on products before putting in service.

HISTACO and HollySys negotiated and entered into an exclusive cooperation and partnership agreement. The first project in cooperation with HollySys is MURL2 project in which HISTACO is offering ISA (Independent Safety Assessment) by a European company to assure the safety of the project. This is the first time independent safety assessment in Iran.

HISTACO R&D department in cooperation with HollySys will soon localize signalling equipment production in Iran. This effort is much more worthy due to product standards which is SIL4. Therefore soon HISTACO will be the first company in Iran who offers SIL4 domestic products to railway market.
