Interview with Sébastien GUICHERD, head of the FMDS (Reliability, Maintainability, Availability and Security) and SLI (Integrated Logistics Support) team for the Energy and System agency of INEO UTS (EQUANS brand).
INEO UTS (Urban Transportation Solutions) is specialized in high currents (HV/LV – Traction) and low current systems (GTC, Networks, Video, Audio, Telephony, Interphony, Access Controls) for urban transport infrastructures (metro, tramway, high-level bus service).
The company commissioned SERMA Safety and Security to support the Platform Facades division for the U5 line of the Vienna metro, the creation of lines 16, 17 and 18 of the Grand Paris Express, and the extension of line 14 of the RATP.
SERMA Safety and Security works with the INEO UTS teams to demonstrate that the landing doors (motorised and emergency doors) are safe and efficient, in application of the EN50126, EN50129 and EN50128 standards, with a view to their future operation.
This support consists of carrying out risks, impacts and consequences analyses in terms of safety, in order to ensure that the equipment on each platform facade does not present any danger for users or operating personnel / maintenance.
“We are very satisfied with the service provided by SERMA Safety and Security. Thanks to its professionalism, its rigor and its good knowledge of the problems of platform facades, it adapts to our expectations and those of our many stakeholders: people in charge of mechanical design, control and electrical equipment”, emphasises Sébastien GUICHERD.
