DEFINITION OF THE OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS
FOR A CENTURY PROJECT THROUGH THE ANDES

BIOCEANICO ACONCAGUA

A new railway line will connect Chile and Argentina through the Andes, creating a fast link between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, and the most vital economic centers of the regions. The hearth of the very ambitious project is a 54 km long tunnel, but the entire corridor appears as one of the world’s most complex infrastructures, stretching over a region with extremely variable climate conditions with a high number of tunnels and viaducts.
LIFT was asked to define and test the requirements to the layout of the entire line in order to meet the expected demand and with different alignments.

Our tasks:
- Preparation of the micro-simulation model;
- Definition of the speed limits and performances;
- Specification of technologic requirement;
- Simulation of the benefits of dynamic crossing and partial double tracks;
- Definition of an optimized layout.Estimation of the impact of failures;
- Timetable robustness estimationComparison of various scenarios.
