Metro Budapest

Fire Protection for M3 Metro Line

Budapest, Hungary

After successful implementation and positive experience with FOGTEC high pressure water mist systems protecting 9 metro stations in the M2 metro line and 10 metro stations in the M4 metro line in Budapest, the metro operator BKV decided to carry forward the same fire protection concept to the M3 metro line in Budapest where FOGTEC is currently installing the system into the first 6 metro stations. As part of the overall safety strategy of the stations, the FOGTEC system protects the platform areas by nozzles being installed in the rail areas, in the escalators and into all technical rooms. The water mist system assures that people can safely be evacuated from the underground stations in case of fire.

UNIFE Annual Reception

20 - 21 February, Brussels

The European Association of the Railway Industry (UNIFE) and the Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Companies (CER) invited their members to the annual reception in the Square Meeting Center in the middle of Brussels. Traditionally this event is combined with the European Railway Award which went this year to the team of the AlpTransit Gotthard Tunnel. During the round table discussions, the participants from well-known companies in the railway business as well as the EU commission talked about  the future tasks for the railway industry and operators . It was the first time that more women joined this traditional round-table than men. Also FOGTEC joined the well-organized high-level event, especially as it could be combined very well with the meeting of the presiding board before and the SME-committee afterwards.
