CGI Group has won a potential 10-year contract to develop and manage software for a railway management agency to use for controlling the movement of more than 6,000 trains.
The contract is for six years with an option to extend for an additional four years and the first project under the contract is worth approximately $13 million, CGI said Wednesday.
ProRail manages trains that carry 1.2 million passengers in the Netherlands per day.
Ron de Mos, senior vice president and general manager of CGI’s Netherlands operations, said the company’s professionals hold knowledge of what traffic controllers use to manage the railways.
Train traffic controllers use a CGI-provided train number tracking system, delivered under a previous contract, to follow the position of trains and direct traffic.
