Rail overhead line inspection 

The Challenge

Ferrous Metal SA* was contracted by Europe Rail‡, a rail infrastructure company for major engineering project to upgrade the overhead line system of a section of intercity line in a European country.

Immediately after commencing the project, issues arose from the various team profiles on the project – from BIM managers to electrical, structural, container, rail, civil, software and surveying engineers – each with their own device, operating systems and professional software.

What Ferrous Metal SA* needed was a smart and intelligent cloud solution to run all the heavy-duty computer-aided design (CAD), Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software from any device to increase cross-functional collaboration without disruption or downtime.
