Sociedad Ibérica de Construcciones Eléctricas S.A. (SICE) is a systems and services integrator company specialising in intelligent transportation solutions for industrial, environmental and telecommunication management systems. As a systems integrator SICE is constantly up-to-date with all evolving technologies without being constrained by any one, and is therefore able to offer tailor-made solutions based on open sources and which are easily upgradable.
SICE also provides technical consulting and auditing, basic and detailed engineering, provision, installation, start up and maintenance (both preventive and corrective), including technological research and software development to allow for tailor-made client-specific solutions.
Advanced traffic management systems for roads and tunnels
SICE is a world-leading system integrator in ITS and tunnels systems design, development and deployment. By using the latest technologies in ITS and tunnel management and control systems, SICE guarantees maximum security to users driving on arterial roads. SICE has developed in-house software allowing the management of road and tunnels, and roads with tunnels, which is currently integrated with the majority of the equipment vendors.
The Madrid Calle 30 project, which includes the inner ring road of the city and largest urban tunnel ever built, counts on SICE's management systems to monitor and control all its E&M systems from a centralised control centre and backup centre. This complex system comprises 21 servers, 18 workstations, 735 distributed control PLCs, 975 CCTV cameras, 70,000m of radiating cable, 652 traffic lights, 93 variable message signs and 440 graphic signs, not to mention various other vital components which need to be monitored by a reliable and specialised management system.
With a recently awarded project in New Zealand, SICE counts over 60 projects and over 120km of tunnels controlled with SICE's management solution. Furthermore, SICE has deployed over 100 ITS systems, with hundreds of kilometres of highways controlled with this proprietary traffic management system.
Toll collection systems
Since SICE delivered the first tolling system on the AP7 Highway in Valencia, Spain, our strategy in tolling has been to invest in research and development to expand our range of tolling products to satisfy the evolving needs of our clients.
Starting with the traditional canalised tolling systems (manual and/or automatic lanes), introducing electronic toll collection (manual and/or dedicated dynamic lanes), and incorporating shadow tolling to our portfolio, we are finally able to offer cutting-edge technology with multi-lane free-flow tolling systems fitted to all electronic tolling (AET) and open-road tolling (ORT) projects.
Integrating ETC systems operating with 900MHz, 2.4Ghz and 5.8Ghz, GSSA1, ISO 15509, SICE has developed the most sophisticated driver systems and integrated one of the highest numbers of electronic tolling products in the market.
Multi-lane free-flow tolling systems
SICE is one of the few companies that not only provides back-office solutions based on SAP but also in-house development; a result of our vast experience and exposure to iconic projects worldwide, as well as an in-depth understanding of our clients' needs.
SICE's capability in providing turnkey solutions eliminates the integration gaps that risk appearing between roadside equipment systems (RSE) and those provided for tolling operation and customer service. Our experience and capability throughout these different projects, combined with our quick adaption to the needs of the contractor, means that any worries about toll operation and billing management will be under control.
The incorporation of SICE's tolling point concentrator and controller permits our clients to count with a multi-provider tool, which works with equipment from different manufacturers without diminishing the performance of the system.
The flexibility of our model also allows the integration of different technologies; for example, canalised toll lanes, multi-lane DSRC free-flow and satellite tolling, into a single back-office as well as operating different concessionaires with the same back office system.
SICE's multi-concessionaire, multi-RSE provider, multi-service and multi-technology approach provides outstanding quality and high-performance solutions readily available to our clients.
Environmentally friendly transport system
The green bus rapid transit (BRT) or e-Bus is the result of the BRT's evolution to a sustainable overground urban transport solution. SICE has developed an integrated solution for mass-transport systems in medium-sized cities, which fulfils all the expectations for a modern transport system:
- Attractive vehicle design
- Green and sustainable power
- Affordable cost
- Good transport capacity
- High-quality stations
These new transportation guidelines have been trialled at SICE's Riyadh project, and have resulted in:
- Dedicated bus lanes with comprehensive coverage
- High-frequency buses
- Priority bus lanes
- Off-bus fare collection
- Level boarding
With a total of 20 area offices in Spain and 36 offices worldwide, SICE is currently present in over 28 countries on five continents.
Our accomplishments in different countries such as Australia, Chile, South Africa and Greece is a testament to the success of our tailor-made service provision, capable of adapting to the differences in our clients' traffic and toll management needs.
