SNCF has awarded a contract to OKTAL to supply Tram-Train simulators

After an order of 120 type BB 22000 driving micro-simulators at the beginning of 2010 (LITO2 project), the French national railway company confirms its trust in OKTAL by signing a new contract in July for the supplying of Tram-Train New Generation driving simulators (TTNG).

These mobile simulators will enable training Tram-train drivers on French territory. They will also be used as communication support by SNCF to inform public, professionals and institutions about the Tram-Train concept. Compact and integrated into a flight-case, the TTNG simulators can be easily installed or moved from a training site to another one thanks to their ergonomics. TTNG keeps all the qualities of LITO2: excellent immersion of the driver, very realistic representation of the synthetic environment with high quality 3D images and wide panel of features.

Laurent Salanqueda, Chief Executive Officer of OKTAL, has declared: "We are very sensitive to the trust SNCF showed us through these two consecutive contracts. Beyond the legitimate pride to have been chosen to accompany this prestigious principal, this message comes to validate our strategy on the railway simulation market and reaffirm the company values based on professionalism and technical innovation".
