Channel Tunnel leads digital revolution

  17.02.2017    

Yesterday, 16 February 2017, Eurotunnel hosted a visit to its terminal in Coquelles, France, by the French Secretary of State for Digital and Innovation, Madame Axelle Lemaire.
Eurotunnel presented to the Minister its €100 million, multi-annual investment plan, the 2020 Digital Programme.
Jacques  Gounon,  Chairman  and  Chief  Executive Officer of  Groupe  Eurotunnel  SE  stated:
“I would like to thank Axelle Lemaire for her visit, which has provided the occasion to shine a light on how the European digital industry is a vital link for Eurotunnel and an opportunity for growth in the future.
Our Digital programme will enable us to provide our own staff and customers with even better and more effective
information”.
The 2020 Digital Programme:
Having  already  invested  in  GSM-R  and  GSM-P  communications  technologies,  including  the  very popular  4G  network  in  the  Tunnel,  Eurotunnel  has  a  continuing  programme  of  investment  in  digital technology for the future along several different lines:
- The  use  of  paperless  technology for  mobile  Group  staff on  the  terminals  and  on  board  the Shuttles, based on Navipad for train drivers and train captains, using WOOP for maintenance technicians and Elite, a real time performance monitoring tool.
- The use of data to help terminal operations adapt to the passage of each customer so that both individual and collective activities can be  optimised  using complex, ever  more complete and varying data,
- The maintenance of Shuttles and rails which, now equipped with intelligent receptors (using the internet of things), transmit information in real time.  Eurotunnel is also preparing to equip its trains  with  receptors capable  of  analysing  the  condition  of  the  track  whilst  in  service  at  high speed.
- For an infrastructure which already provides an exceptional level of availability, the ambition is to move from two nights to just one night of maintenance per week.
For Eurotunnel, the digital revolution is a major scientific, and technological project.
