ENSCO Rail Wins Latin American Contract to Detect Unsafe Track Conditions

ENSCO Rail has delivered its second Autonomous Track Geometry Measurement System (ATGMS) and Autonomous Rail Profile Measurement System (ARPMS) to Brazilian logistics company Rumo S.A., the largest transport and logistics company in Latin America.

The systems are installed on an existing freight car dedicated to track condition evaluation to continuously monitor track geometry and rail wear conditions to detect unsafe track conditions and optimize maintenance planning.

The autonomous systems operate more frequently than traditional manned systems without the need for an onboard crew. The increased inspection frequency and advanced data analytics enable early detection of degrading track network conditions to optimize maintenance and renewal planning.

The Rumo S.A. freight rail network operates in Brazil with headquarters in Curitiba. The company provides rail transportation, load handling and storage services in São Paulo and Brazil’s southern region.
