Bordeaux-Tours high-speed line

The DVL crosswind detector is deployed on the Bordeaux Tours high speed line and allows trains to be slowed down in real time in the event of high winds

‘DVL’ Cross-Wind detector: first BGS safety plaform application

To ensure high speed trains run under optimum safety conditions, wind speeds need to be monitored on high-speed rail lines so as to adapt train speed accordingly. Our Side Wind Detection system meets this safety requirement.

In 2016, 19 DVLs were deployed on the new Bordeaux-Tours high-speed line. The system is currently in service, detects route wind speed in real time and slows down the train in the event of excessively high winds.
