Research – Innovation

cercetare-inovareResearch and innovation has been a constant concern since the establishment of our company in order to identify both aspects that need to be strengthened and perfectible aspects.

The need to find viable and innovative solutions in order to achieve the specific conditions of the Bucharest metro has paved the way for participation in several research projects.

Specific areas, such as corrosion protection of underground tunnels, construction subsidence monitoring, infrastructure protection against stray currents, reduction of sound and vibration pollution of the metro system, etc., have contributed to the metro operational performance and have increased safety.

Areas related to the mobility field, such as accessibility and safety of public transport and road infrastructure, have been addressed in recent years in partnerships with universities and traditional companies.

The tradition of the above-mentioned activities, better training and the expertise of our specialists, combined with the ability of to work as a team and the international partnerships are strengths that enable the company to participate in projects with both national and European funding.

Support for both pre-competitive and competitive research, promotion of innovative ideas, as well as provision with the latest software equipment are all part of our company’s development policy.
