The Catania Centrale station is located along a 7.4-kilometer line that connects Sicily to nearby densely populated urban areas. Italferr was tasked with moving the current station underground and doubling a new section of track to guarantee speeds of 120-200 kilometers per hour and 100-120 kilometers per hour for passenger and freight respectively, while keeping the impact on the city and its residents to a minimum. They had to ensure that their planning and communication workflows were efficient.
Italferr chose ProjectWise to facilitate the exchange of data between all stakeholders. Bentley applications were used to create models of the track, surrounding terrain, civil and water infrastructure above and below ground, plus other related infrastructure systems. Using the Bentley iTwin platform, the team enabled the efficient flow of information, empowering more accurate construction simulation, faster analysis, and enhanced decision-making.
