The SEA HSL Project consisted of a main section of 302-km double track line between Tours and Bordeaux, with 7 connections to the French network totalling 38km of additional double tracks. The main section is electrified to 25kV – 50Hz and is equipped with GSM-R, ETCS L2 and TVM 300 (French Class B System). Rolling stock running on the SEA HSL are equipped with ETCS L2 and/or with French national signalling system (TVM 300 / TVM430). Hitachi Rail STS (former Ansaldo STS) was in charge of designing, installing and testing ETCS L2.
