A Digital Subway in Northern Europe

A Digital Subway
in Northern Europe

A digital twin to monitor one of the best driverless subways in the world.

Approach & Solution



Engineering supported on an extremely significant project a leading company in the production of systems and equipment for subway networks, railway lines and "smart transportation" systems worldwide, with over 4000 employees and more than 30 offices.
We created a digital twin able to simulate the monitoring and supervision system of physical systems SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) for one of the best driverless subways in the world, located in Northern Europe.


The digital twin was applied to all the sub-systems involved in the monitoring and remote control of the subway, such as electrical substation switches, line disconnectors, and civil installations in stations, including moving staircases, elevators, air conditioning, lighting, fire protection systems, emergency tunnel ventilation SIL2, etc.

The main goals of the project were:
1) Verification and validation of new software releases of the SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system
2) Verification and certification of training for operators, a group subject to high turnover.
