ENYSE has put into Revenue Service the Alfaz del Pi station, belonging to line 9 of FGV, which connects Benidorm and Denia, in Alicante. This new unit is located between the stations of Benidorm and Altea, so it has been necessary to make the specific configuration changes in these two interlockings in order to introduce the new intermediate station. In addition to the Commissioning of the new interlocking, field elements and block lines, the Pedestrian Level Crossing was interlocked to automate its closing and opening, its protection status affecting the opening of the E-220F type LED signals and the new EiS23 Electronic Interlocking. Lastly, it should be noted that the Altea Command and Control Center was put into service, integrating the supervision and control of the Alfaz del Pi, Olla de Altea, Calpe and Altea stations based on the ENYSIC integrated control system.
The block line system between the different stations is automatic, based on Axle Counter technology. In parallel to these works, the functionality of the Automatic Train Protection (ATP) system has been updated.
