INTERFLO 150 Mining Operation Sweden

Designed to optimise the movement of ore and freight

Moving freight safely 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with optimised efficiency and capacity. Specifically designed for industrial and mining applications, BOMBARDIER* INTERFLO* offers a Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) system with moving block technology which can be fully automated and driverless.

The system provides a step change in rail productivity by enabling flexible operations and
integration with a mine’s loading and unloading systems. The system is also scalable, making it cost effective in mines of varying size and grades of automation around the world.

The INTERFLO system is the optimal choice for heavy haulage lines as well as industrial automated haulage systems. The INTERFLO haulage train control system uses the latest communication based technology with a minimal wayside footprint, while offering maximum rail capacity. The system can be run in automated driverless mode, offering minimal OPEX cost. INTERFLO includes several functions for industrial automation and integration with other production control systems.

Bombardier is a leading provider of rail control solutions and turnkey railway system projects which have been supplied to the mining industry worldwide. This experience has been invested in the company’s highly-skilled engineers and allows systems to be installed in wide-spread remote locations ranging from the world’s largest copper reserves within Codelco in the Chilean Andes, to more recent installations in one of the world’s most automated underground mines, LKAB in northern Sweden.

  • No wayside train detection equipment required
  • No optical signals required
  • Built-in driverless capability
  • Automatic dispatching and traffic on demand
  • Use in combination with various radio systems (e.g. VHF, UHF, Tetra, GSM(-R), LTE, Wi-Fi)

Tailored lifetime solutions

We offer tailored solutions ranging from sub-systems to complete turnkey solutions as well as maintenance, installation, commissioning, training, spare parts, obsolescence management and other services. To achieve the very best solution for our customers, we discuss and tailor solutions to suit your needs and are available to support throughout the entire life cycle of the project.

Benefits of INTERFLO for Industrial and Mining

Increased capacity

  • Integrated traffic management, including interface and integration with loading and unloading stations so trains can be automatically directed for optimal production
  • Automatic dispatching, automatic route setting, and online traffic and production optimisation
  • Moving block – safe operation, shorter headways, improved track and rolling stock utilisation as well as power efficiency

Reliable

  • Offering a complete solution with proven components
  • Enables driverless operation and dispatching, removing human error and inefficiencies
  • Limited or reduced track-side equipment lowers maintenance and installation cost as well as risk of theft, vandalism or accidental damage
  • Exceptional Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety (RAMS)

Traffic optimisation

  • Traffic on demand in addition to traffic according to time schedule i.e. reduced train idle times
  • Automatic optimisation – based on actual length and braking capability of each train
  • Automatic conflict detection and resolution is built into the system which calculates a movement authority to ensure trains do not collide and do not need to wait for each other to pass
  • Trains are constantly monitored by a remote control centre, enabling better dispatch of trains and allowing operators to see where trains are and how they are performing

Flexible

  • Compatible with any mobile data radio communication available
  • Scalable architecture ensures expansion for future capacity demands
  • Safety equipment ensuring the train’s speed, position and integrity

Designed to optimise the movement of ore and freight

The efficient movement of freight 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, is essential to a modern and productive resource industry. Specifically designed for industrial and mining applications, INTERFLO 150 optimises and maximises the rapid transport of raw materials to enable fully automated continuous, efficient and streamlined productivity.
