CERTIFER and Network Certification Body have been awarded the HS2 project, the greatest transport infrastructure project ever built in the United Kingdom.
HS2 Project, “the new back-bone of Britain’s rail network” is one of the most ambitious and significant transport project for-Britain’s railways, as it aims to connect major cities of UK from London to Crewe (phase 1 and 2a). A second phase will follow and link London to Scotland thanks upgrades on existing network.
This new HS2 line will be the world’s fastest high-speed line, as it will operate at speed of up to 360km/h and the infrastructure will also be designed to run up to 400km/h. Today, the fastest railway line operates in China at speed of up to 350km/h.
In the framework of this leading project, NCB and Certifer joined their forces and thanks to a fruitful collaboration of two years have been selected by HS2 Ltd as CSM-RA Assessment Body, Notified Body and Designated Body.
Awarding UK’s leading railway project is a key milestone for the two pure-players of railway certification, NCB and CERTIFER and is also a recognition of our know-how in the domain of high speed rail certification.
