Vipac subsidiary Track IQ has been presented with an award for Innovation Excellence by SNCF for RailBAM®, Track IQ’s Bearing Acoustic Monitor which has been installed at multiple TGV depots in France.

Safety and reliability are key concerns for SNCF which operates more than 500 TGV trains serving 230 destinations and reaching peak speeds of 320km/hour.
