The Campus Nyland centre will prepare workers to work within the ERTMS digital system, which will reduce operating costs and increase capacity throughout the network. When ERTMS is fully rolled out in 2034, the system will cover 4200km of track and more than 350 stations.
Campus Nyland will be an industry centre for digital education and will house more than 5000 employees, who will learn the necessary skills needed to ensure ERTMS is successful when it becomes operational.
This will include staff from Bane Nor, train operators, maintenance companies and contractors. The Campus will have simulator training as well as physical training facilities, using new technology such as virtual reality to communicate how lines are equipped with ERTMS, as well as the design of trains and traffic control centres. More than 150 different scenarios are available for training within the highly digitised training hub.
The Roa – Hønefoss ERTMS test line is due to open in spring 2020, with the new signalling technology to be monitored and tested from Campus Nyland.
The next milestone will be the digitalisation of the Grong – Bodø Nordlands line, which is due to become operational in October 2022.
