The Italian State Railways Group (FS Group) is a key player in the mobility sector, becoming more and more a point of reference and a globally renowned company for its level of expertise.

With more than 80 thousands employees globally, 16,800 km of railway tracks to manage and a net invested capital of about AU$ 80 billion, FS group provides all the main components of the mobility value chain to the international market, among which: preliminary and executive design, supervision of works, testing and certification, operation and maintenance activities.

FS is the Group devoted at exporting the technological, operational and engineering Made in Italy know-how in the mobility sector across the world.

Through its subsidiaries Italferr, the engineering company of the Group, and Italcertifer, the company dedicated to the assessment and certification (both of the rolling stock and of the line), FS Group has set foot in Australia since 2011. In 2017 it opened a branch in Brisbane and it is currently involved in various projects, in particular with regards to the south-eastern area of the continent (New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria) and to the Inland Rail Corridor.

Moreover, FS group encourages collaborations with local companies. A perfect example is represented by the assignment, since 2013, of safety certification to Italcertifer of the Australian railway network (1,300 km) owned by the multinational mining company Rio Tinto: the agreement concerns the certification of the Auto Haul driverless control, command and signaling system. Other major projects involved the Roy Hill freight line, the Queensland Rail renovation project and the Public Transport Authority infrastructure maintenance process.

Italferr is the railway and metro design company that has been the planning and design mastermind behind the development of the rail system in Italy in the last 40 years and it has a proven experience in providing the most advanced traffic control and safety technology to congested urban and suburban lines.

Calculation of the climate and environmental footprint of building a railway line, are increasingly part of the design process and at the basis of FS group choices, in the belief that only the search for a balance between economic, social and environmental aspects can lead to the solid and lasting growth of the Company and the country.

Sustainability is another essential key word for the success of the company: the technological solutions that characterize the vehicles – from the energy requirements of the new high -speed and regional trains, to the performance of the new road vehicles – as well as the design and management of railway and road infrastructures contribute to build an integrated transport system with reduced environmental impact.
