Railway Pro – India to use RailAcoustic detection system for broken rails

India has decided to use a detection system for broken rails made in Turkey. With this purpose, Enekom began cooperation with India’s Railtech Infraventure Pvt. Ltd. company. “RailAcoustic”, a system patented in Turkey, U.S., India, China, and Japan, can perceive a fracture or a crack on the rails. The system is not affected by external factors and different climatic conditions.
“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”, Haluk Gokmen, general director of Enekom, said.
The system will initially be tested on a 50-kilometer rail line in India in the first quarter of 2018, and then be extended across the country.
