Guided Transport Systems (STGV) and infrastructures

Railway, Underground Railway, Light Rail, Fast Tramway and Tramway

Transport Infrastructures

The term Guided Transport Systems refers to: railways, underground, tramways, etc.

Our Institute has worked in this sector for many years, and our highlyskilled experts provide technical support and testing to businesses in various sections of the industry.

The test machines, equipment and instruments in our laboratories are continually updated, checked and calibrated, and conduct tests required by current standards and by the main technical specifications of industry operators.

Our Institute is the 1st Italian ACCREDIA-accredited Body for the tests described by the UNI EN 16272 series of acoustical-performance standards regarding sound insulation and absorption in the laboratory.

The main activities carried out in our laboratories include:
