First Flex level crossing system in operation in Finland
In December 2020, the first Flex level crossing system on the Lahti-Heinola line in Finland was accepted and successfully put into regular operation. The installation of the first Flex system in Finland is a pilot project that will be thoroughly tested by the Finnish railway authority over a period of twelve months. Thanks to excellent cooperation, Schweizer Electronic succeeded in meeting the exceptional requirements of the Finnish authorities within a short period of time and in realising the project. After successful completion of the test phase, Flex will be officially approved and Schweizer Electronic can participate in regular tenders for level crossings with barriers.
22 Vamos systems have already been approved and are in use in Finland. In spring 2021, another 19 Vamos systems will be installed on the Toijala-Valkeakoski railway line (near Tampere).
