Dear Business Partners,Associates and Co-Workers,Dear Friends,in the introduction to our company’s annualreport for the past period, I would liketo thank all our employees for their excellentwork, our associates for their support,our business partners for their trust andour friends and supporters for promotingthe good name of AŽD Praha.The 2010/2011 financial year was definitelynot an easy one. In the beginningof his period there were certain doubts anduncertainties – how can we fulfil our plans,how many contracts will we secure and whatis the future outlook. Looking back at thisperiod, I am pleased to state that we fulfilledour main tasks in the economic, technicaland business areas. We fulfilled them despitethe commencing recession and the consequentreduction in transportation infrastructureinvestments, and despite a situationwhen success abroad has never been moredifficult. We are even more proud of our resultsbecause of the above conditions. Wehave maintained and strengthened the goodname of our company on the domestic mar-6

ket as well as abroad. Professionalism, flexibilityand our efforts to meet all our customers’requirements have been and will continue tobe the main principles of our policy.We continued with the implementation ofdomestic projects involving the backbonenetworks of the 3rd and 4th national transitcorridors, secondary railway lines and junctions,such as the Beroun – Zbiroh, MariánskéLázně – Cheb and Benešov – Votice sections,commencement of work at the StaráPaka junction and other projects. We continuedthe implementation of telecommunicationsystems, road telematics systems andother technologies. We strived to be flexiblewhen responding to emergencies, the recommendationsof our customers and traindrivers by initiating and implementing ourown improvement proposals. However, it isclear that the times of full capacity utilization,which we remember from five yearsago, are not coming back. Hence we havecontinued to reduce company costs notonly by reducing our operating costs but,unfortunately, also by reducing numberof our employees and by implementingthe very much needed reorganization. Thatresulted, among other things, in reductionin our production capacities in Prague. Nevertheless,we should also remember that wehelped many people to find new jobs withinthe company.Abroad, we extended the positive resultsof the previous years. One should notoverlook our important contracts in Belarus,Lithuania, Serbia and Montenegro andthe deliveries of our products to Malaysia,Turkey, Greece and the United States. Unfortunately,due to in particular politicalchanges, we have not been successful inEgypt and Syria and our results in Bulgariaalso lagged behind our expectations. Wecarried out very important contracts inSlovakia – for example, the construction ofthe Žilina – Teplička large railway marshallingyard. Company revenues from foreigncontracts amount to approximately 20% ofour overall revenues, a fact that is very importantfor the future. Other important factorsinclude the development of telecommunicationand information technologies,a new public address system networks, localand railway radio network systems andour participation in building the GSM-R andCAB radio system. All of this was accomplishedlast year.Among our other activities, I would like toemphasize here our deliveries for the PragueMetro and our activities in the area of roadtelematics for cities and municipalities inboth the Czech Republic as well as abroad.Our revenues in these areas have been alsogrowing and have partially compensatedthe losses in the railway sector.Technological development played a veryimportant role in the past period. The significantfinancial resources that we have investedthis year (as we do every year) into technologicaldevelopment are at least comparableto our European and international competitors.Some of these projects, which we havealready put or will soon put into trial operation,include the ESA 44 electronic interlocking,the new PZZ-J level crossing system,the RBA-10 radio-block for secondary lines,the LS 06/07 automatic train protection, newGTN systems, new EZS and VNPN functionalitiesreacting to accidents (registering lossof shunt and warning against trains illegallypassing through signals), diagnostic systems,devices for Metro and many other systemsand their applications. We consider as a veryimportant step the completion of the ETCSpilot project, where we applied our own solutionsand subsystems.Another very positive step was the consolidationof our subsidiaries, a process that hasprovided positive results not only in terms ofeconomy but also in education, production,development and other areas. It is necessary7

to emphasize the importance of our service,logistics centre, foreign trade as well as assemblyand production activities.The importance and role of our companyis underlined by its integration into Europeanprojects, the participation of our specialistsin technical and legislative committees,the participation of our company in ACRI,UNIFE, UNISIG, the Interoperability TechnologicalPlatform and other associations andinstitutions. Our participation in the GalileoProject, the European Space Agency,the Chambers of Commerce of the CzechRepublic and Capital City of Prague – all ofthis highlights the possibilities for us to expertlyinfluence future decisions, strategiesand concepts in terms of transportation policiesnot only in the Czech Republic.Dear Friends,The last year was a very difficult one forour company, yet it was also a dynamic andinteresting year. I would like to direct yourattention to some other parts of this annualreport, where you will be able to seethe results of the previous financial year notonly in the form of figures, but also structuredinto individual chapters that describethe individual activities of our company indetail. Once again, let me thank all of youwho have contributed through their work tothe excellent results and good name of ourcompany.I would also like to thank our businesspartners and customers who have enabledus to exercise our capabilities and to utilizeour extensive potential. Their faith in us representsour greatest commitment for the futureand we will strive to maintain it throughour reliable and high quality work, makingsure that our technologies will safely fulfiltheir purpose for a long time to come.It is my desire that the name “AŽD Praha”comes to the mind of everybody who hearsthe words Professionalism, Quality, Correctnessand Top Czech Technologies.Ing. Zdeněk ChrdleCEO and General Manager8

BUSINESSDifficulties caused by a decline in the globaleconomy are becoming evident atthis moment. The problems are reflectedin the national economic environment,where this situation makes difficult to meetthe state budget. It was for these reasonsthat cost-cutting budget measures wereadopted, including a drop in investmentsin the transport infrastructure and subsequentlya drop in the number of investmentprojects.In the situation which has recently arisen,AŽD Praha will have to focus on economicaland cost-saving solutions in its main activities.In the main area of control, signallingand communication systems, the potential ofthe production programme must be used insuch way so as to achieve the most effectiveutilisation for customer requirements. The efficiencyof the process must be supported byrelated service programmes and equipmentmaintenance orders. This course of actionwill allow AŽD Praha to maintain its key positionon the domestic market by gaining ashare in large transportation investments.The company’s professional level, itstechnical potential and long-term experiencealso allow the company to gaina greater share on foreign markets. With anappropriate pricing policy, foreign ordersshould compensate the certain fall in domesticinvestments and ensure successfuldevelopment of AŽD Praha.FOREIGN ACTIVITIESDespite continuing negative effects ofthe world economic crises the foreign ordersto the Company showed a dynamicprogress. Centralisation of foreign tradeoperation is a key aspect of the AŽD Prahaforeign activities. Individual destinations,called field of operation, are administeredby task groups of employees. These areteams usually put together when an importantcontract is acquired or a significantposition in the foreign market is achieved.These teams are centralised under one organisationof the Foreign Marketing andTrade department, allowing better controlover the foreign activities and coordinationof implementation of contracts withinthe company.Under the auspice of Foreign Marketingand Trade department, a new „Engineeringof foreign orders“ section responsible forproject management of foreign orders wasestablished.Priority foreign markets of AŽD Prahaare Belarus, Serbia, Montenegro, Lithuania,Bulgaria, Turkey, Greece, Egypt and USA.Newly the company strives to penetratethe territories of Latvia, Croatia, Taiwan andJordan.LithuaniaAŽD Praha as a member of the consortiumtogether with the Lithuanian companyUAB FIMA provides supplies of the signallingequipment for 100 km line sectionKaunas – Kybartai.

In additionto the gradual electronization of the usualcategories of equipment, such as line signalling,station interlocking and level crossingsystems, the increasing attention is paidto brand new technologies, such as the useof satellite navigation in railway signallingtechnology. In addition, new approachesto improve railway safety are sought anddeveloped. The most widely known exampleis the development of Radioblok, whichwas launched into training operation onthe Číčenice – Volary track, and which isdesigned so as to increase the safety levelon lines of the D3 category with the lowestinvestment costs.Another important step is the completionof the pilot project of ETCS onPoříčany – Kolín line section where AŽDPrague contributed significantly in supplyof this modern European Automatic TrainControl System.An important part of railway signalingsystems form systems for its remote control.These systems (including systems andother subsystems) are also involved in trafficmanagement and they form an importantand effective tool for railway workers.A significant representative of these systemsfor the management of the railwaytransport there is the Graphic-technologicaloverlay of the signalling systems, whosemain function is providing an overview ofthe current and future traffic situation andalso automatic management of traffic documentation.Currently AŽD Praha is workingon important technological innovationof Graphic-technological overlay. This isa development of entirely new functionalityof Automatic train route setting, whoseintroduction will further enhance the workcomfort of traffic employees.The technical development, largelyprovided by our own research and developmentemployees, is also supportedby cooperation of several professionalcompanies, and some colleges and universities.Quality results of our own house technologicaldevelopment and research is a necessaryprecondition for successful applicationof our products in foreign markets and is alsoreflected into the international cooperation(e.g. within CENELEC, UNISIG and UNIFE).The AŽD own technological developmentalso enables use of its products inthe Prague’s Metro and the road signallingtechnology (both at home and abroad).ROAD TELEMATICSResearch and development for road telematicsis provided by a separate R & D centre.New types of controller development,the MR-11 (designed to control all typesof intersections) and MR-22 (designed tocontrol pedestrian crossings and small intersections)with integrated interface forthe OCIT communication protocol, werecompleted last year. These controllers usestandard components which guaranteetheir high quality. Their competitiveness isensured also by meeting the high requirementsof European Standards for operation29

safety when part of the system fails. Theyalready conform to current trend for use ofLED diode signals.The final certification of ČMI successfullycompleted a newer version for measuringsection speed, the MUR-07, and then startedinnovation of other camera systems.The development centre also devoteda great deal of attention to the extension offunctions of the EDAPTIVA urban traffic controlcentre. This control centre provides supervisionand control of traffic control withinsmall and large urban agglomerations,including connection to other telematicstechnologies installed in the monitoredarea (strategic detectors, variable trafficsigns, traffic continuous control, informationsystems for drivers, meteorological announcingpoints, camera systems, etc.).30


A significant part of AŽD Praha is its ownindustrial production, which contributesto supply of the signalling and telecommunicationtechnology of our productionplants.Production plants perform the taskof the main manufacturers for buildingof the signalling and telecommunicationssystem projects implemented by AŽDassembly plants on railway projects inthe Czech Republic and abroad.Production plants significantly contributedto the ongoing restructuring of the Company.During this fiscal year the activitythe Production Plant Praha ended andthe newly established Production WorkplacePraha and its staff was transferred toLogistic Plant Olomouc.Within the specialization of productionplants the Production Plant Olomouc ismainly focused on engineering production.The plant is equipped with modernprogram-controlled CNC machining centers.Within restructuring of the productionplants, modern machines for sheet metalforming were moved from Prague to ProductionPlant Olomouc, where the productionof the cabinet program for needs ofour company and for external customerswas launched during the last year.The Production Plant Brno is specializedfor the production of electronic and electro-technicalconfigurations.Within restructuring of the productionplants the products of electronic and electro-technicalcharacter were taken fromthe production program of the ProductionPlant Praha and simultaneously the productsof an engineering character weretransferred into the Production Plant Olomouc.Cooperation production of electronicconfigurations for the external customers,especially the production of electron microscopesfor the FEI Company, has a largeshare in the production volumes.The high technical level of AŽD productionbase is designed to modern technologycorresponding to the global trends in the signallingand telecommunication technologyof electronics and mechanical engineering.PRODUCTION PLANT BRNOIn the area of AŽD manufacturing the ProductionPlant Brno is specialized in manufacturingelectronic and electro-technicalconfigurations for railway signalling andtelecommunications systems. The manufacturingprocess of installation of electronicconfigurations on printed circuit boardsare designed for the implementation ofpiece, small-lot to medium-sized productionof the large range of configurations.This corresponds with the proper equipmentby technological devices that enablerapid switching to different products.The required high quality and reliabilityof products for railway signalling and telecommunicationstechnology correspondswith maintaining a high professional levelof the technicians and operators, and strictevaluation criteria for assessing the productcompliance.In addition to production of electronic configurationsof repetitive own production alsoelectronic configurations for external customerare produced in the Production PlantBrno as well as prototypes of configurationsfor new systems developed by the TechnikaPlant. In this production area the capacity ofProduction Plant Brno to produce more complexelectronic configurations can be employedspecifically in double-faced assemblyof surface mounted components combineddouble faced assembly of components withoutlets into open holes.In the Production Plant Brno all electronicconfigurations on printed circuit boards are32

assessed against the criteria of internationalstandards applicable to most of IPC Class 3.In fiscal year 2010/2011 the ProductionPlant Brno was one of the implementersof the project „Restructuring of ProductionPlant“. As part of this project primarilyproducts of electronic and electro-technicalcharacter were taken from the productionprogram of Production Plant Prague, andsubsequently products of engineering characterwere passed from the production programof Production Plant Brno to the ProductionPlant Olomouc. Along with coping withextreme swings in the manufacturing capacityof the Production Plant during the last fiscalyear, the restructuring of the project wasas a challenge for the production managementand especially for departments of productionplanning and logistics.Cooperation production of electronicconfigurations for external customers andprimarily the production of electromechanicalvacuum sub assemblies (called consoles)of electron microscopes for FEI Companyhas a large share in the production volumesof the Production Plant Brno. Active approachof AŽD Prague to cooperate with thisimportant partner contributed to our winningthe tender for suppliers of higher unitsof electron microscopes. In the fiscal year2010/2011 new technologically clean manufacturingfacilities with an area of 750 m 2in Brno Street Gromešova, were put into operation,which represents not only doublingof the current production capacity, but alsoopens up a space for further developmentof future cooperation.Environmental protectionThe Production Plant Brno contributes toenvironmental protection within the environmentalpolicy and strategy of AŽDPraha, specifically by consistent utilisationof lead-free alloys in all soldering processesduring production of electronic andelectro-technical configurations of its ownproduction. The ban of use of lead in electro-technicaland electronic products asstipulated in the Directive EU 2002/95/ECRoHS and adopted by the Act No. 185/2001Coll., on waste, is thus adhered to.PRODUCTION PLANTOLOMOUCWithin the specialisation of productionplants the Production Plant Olomoucis focused on engineering production.The plant is equipped with modern, highperformance programme-controlled CNCmachining centers Mazak,, some of whichwere, owing to a successful project, co-financedby the European Fund for RegionalDevelopment and the Ministry of Industryand Trade of the CR.Also acquisition of sheet bending andshearing machines, TRUBEND 5170 CNCpress brake and TRUSHARE 3103 CNC plateshears and also purchase of BUA 25B/1250Practic universal plain grinder were a partof the project.Additional modern sheet metal formingmachines have been moved to the ProductionPlant Olomouc within the restructuringof production plants. TRUMPF TruPunch3000 punching centre and SAFAN e-Brake150-3100 TS1 press brake, owing to whichthe production of cabinet program waslaunched during the year in the ProductionPlant Olomouc.High quality and accuracy of the productsare also ensured owing to LK G-90C 3Dmeasuring centre and FARO Gate plus 3Dportable measuring equipment.Owing to the new machines and equipmentit is possible to apply successfullythe outputs of AŽD Praha research and developmentdepartments and to position33

signalling and telecommunication technologyproducts in the demanding conditionof foreign markets.In the sector of non-railway productionthe cooperation is maintained witha number of companies in Olomouc region(OSO Olomouc, John Crane, Koopron, WalterVysloužil) in the field of metal cutting.The cooperation with Saltec and Sécheronwas launched in the field of sheet metalforming.AŽD Praha makes large investments inmodernisation of production technologiesin individual production plants not only toincrease the productivity but also to continuouslyimprove its image in the area ofenvironmental protection which documentsthe starting of costly paint shop reconstructionin Production Plant Olomouc.34


In the 2010/2011 business year the capacitiesof installation plants were concentratedon unfinished sections of railway corridorswhich have not been modernised, includingthe railway junctions. During the period underreview all projects implemented on corridorsand also on secondary lines were successfullyequipped with AŽD Praha moderntechnology. It mainly concerns new types ofthe line signalling system ABE-1, new electronicelements in the station interlockingsystems (ESA 11 and ESA 33) and last butnot least the axle counters PZN-1. In the DOZarea for remote control of individual stationsincluding the KSZZ communication systemwe continue deploying these systemswhich contributes to a better coordinationand safety of the railway traffic. In addition,our equipment has been supplemented byadvanced diagnostics for quick informationof the operators, maintenance and serviceworkers including GTN system for railwaytraffic employees. In this fiscal year the AŽDPraha systems were supplemented in manyrailway stations by a new function of loss ofshunt registering ,,EZŠ“ to improve trafficsafety on the route and this supplementingwill continue also in the next period. As anotherinnovation to improve traffic safety weare offering the VNPN function which is stoppingrailway vehicles when they pass the signal„Stop“ on all train routes and that in relationto the deployment of axle counters.In the area of telecommunication technologiesAZD Praha enters the market withseveral significant elements contributing tothe improvement of project facilities.During the period under review the list of completedprojects on railway corridors includes the following:• Optimisation of the Beroun – Zbiroh line• Optimisation of the Stříbro – Planáu Mariánských Lázní• Bystřice nad Olší – Český Těšín.Remaining optimisation projects:• Zbiroh – Rokycany• Mosty u Jablunkova – Bystřice nad Olší• larger part is activated, but it will becompleted in the next period.Other completed projects:• Rationalization of the Svitavy – Žďárecu Skutče line• Significant projects DOZ CDP Přerov andDOZ Střelice – Hrušovany.Furthermore the capacities of the installationplants were concentrated on other SŽDCinvestment projects of the modernisation,reconstruction and also repair works, whichare very important for safety improvement.In terms of a volume these individual projectsare less significant, but for railway safety arevery important, i.e. they ensure the railwaycrossing safety at all levels of crossings withroads. Upgrading the level crossing systemsand other equipment by signalling for blindsbecomes a default accessory of our projects.In this fiscal year over 11 projects were completedor partially complete and works at otherprojects are currently underway.In terms of foreign installation activitiesthere was seen the greatest success in Belarusand Lithuania. However, work continued also inother destinations, such as the Slovak Republic,Turkey, Greece, Syria, Serbia and the USA. In addition,the preparations for the completion ofthe Podgorica – Niksic project in Montenegro,which is largely activated, were in progress.In the foreign installation activities it isnecessary to ensure good coordination ofdesign work and respective manufacturingwith final installation and activation. Allunits of the process must be involved in theproject inner life including our developmentbase, which is an integral part of the processfor successful completion of the project.The total list of implemented projects includingan overview of the number of activatedmain technical units for the 10/2010-09/2011period are given in the following Table.36

The implementing part of technology supply,traffic control on roads and applicationsin the field of road telematics is the Divisionof Road Technology Automation. Its activityfocuses on the production, installation,maintenance and servicing of such systems.DST Brno design activities are a significantpart of this division including engineering,operation development and advisory activityas a part of the commercial section ofthe road telematics strategy on the traffictechnology market.One of the most important contracts ofthe entire 2010/2011 fiscal year was the firststage of implementation of information systemand continuous control of the highwayin Azerbaijan. This was the first contract implementedin this Asian country.Throughout the business year implementationof long-term contracts were inprogress. One of them is the share of servicework and maintenance of the performancebasedtoll collection system (electronic toll)for selected freeway parts, high speed roadsand class I. roads of the Czech Republic.The other is the service of the informationsystem connected to ZPI (equipment for operationalinformation) and PDZ (variable trafficsigns) on the D1 expressway. The newestlong-term project is the restoration, operationand maintenance of public lighting andtraffic signal lights devices in Boskovice town.At the same time this Division also continuouslyprovides servicing and maintenanceof technologies of its own production whichare mainly signal light controllers (SSZ), parkingsystems, technology of the freeway tunnelValík at the bypass of the Plzeň city andvideo camera systems for measuring blockto block speed and passing on red light orthe signalling system of the Březno railwaytunnel near Chomutov. In the past year othertraffic intersections and development ofthe Malovanka tunnel under the Project Prahasuccessfully passed into operation. Alsothe project works of technology supply forthe Blanka tunnel complex continued.New intersections with traffic light wereinstalled in new commercial centers inModřany and Černý Most in Prague. Anothernew Prague intersection was developed atthe exit of the tramway loop at the newlyextended tram line in Podbaba. Here, the Divisionalso participated in the delivery ofa modern information system for passengers.To increase the pedestrian safety additionalpedestrian crossings were fitted withLED lights embedded into the pavement inthe Prague street „V Olšinách” and two pedestriancrossings in Most.With installations of own special technologiesadjusted for use at children‘s traffic playgroundsin the Czech Republic, DST Brno contributesto highway accident prevention. Lastyear, additional children‘s traffic playgroundswere equipped with these technologies, thistime in Štětkovice and in Žamberk.Significant completed projects:• Share on service activities and maintenanceof electronic toll system of selectedhighway sections, expressways and the 1 stClass roads throughout the Czech Republic.• Service activities of information systemcoupled with ZPI and PDZ on highway D1• Information system and the continuouscontrol system of the highway in Azerbaijan• Restoration, operation and maintenanceof the public lighting in Boskovice• Design, engineering, renewal and installationof light signalling equipment(SSZ) and dynamic coordination of intersectionswithin their renewal and developmentunder Project Praha (Ječná ×Legerova, Ječná × Sokolská, Vinohradská× Jana Želivského)• Installation of SSZ at Blanka tunnel complex• Management and maintenance of the Jihlavatunnel• Construction of intersections with SSZ inOrlová and Třinec.42


The Division of Telecommunication andSignalling Technology Service is a separateunit the main task of which is providingservice activities for the installed telecommunicationand signalling systems.It performs services resulting fromthe responsibility for equipment failuresduring the warranty period (warranty service)and also post warranty service andmaintenance for the telecommunication,signalling and information equipment.As a priority the Division provides servicingof the modernised technological units,in particular the electronic station interlockingsystems the line signalling and levelcrossing systems, remote control systemsincluding servicing of points and barrierprogram of AŽD Praha.The Division provides service of the SŽDCnetwork at 315 station interlocking equipment,1 031 level crossing systems, 102line sections of electronic automatic block,additional 106 line signalling equipment(automatic line block systems and reconstructedautomatic blocs), at remote controlequipment and related telecommunicationand information equipment. In additionthe Service Division provides service andmaintenance for the line signalling systemof the “Vřesinská – Zátiší” tram line. The serviceis also provided for METRO – Public TransportOperator of the City Prague (repairs ofthe 3rd stage on the IV.C1 line and the automatictrain control system). The Divisionalso provides service of the compensators ofdangerous currents at train sets of 680 series(Pendolino).Also the methodological guidance andsupervision service is rendered for systemssupplied by AŽD Praha to Belarus, Serbia,Montenegro, Greece and Turkey. In case ofcomplicated defect the problem is solveddirectly by the visit of Division of Telecommunicationand Signalling Technology Serviceemployee.The service activities have been carriedout by service groups and workplaces locatedin the cities in Ústí nad Labem, KarlovyVary, Prague, České Budějovice, Kolín,Pardubice, Olomouc, Brno, Břeclav, Ostravaand Plzeň. Warranty service in the SlovakRepublic is provided by organisational unitBratislava through the service group locatedin Poprad-Matejovce.Selected groups of the Division providecomprehensive support for the operationof the GNT application with the 24/7 availabilityregime. Division provides remote administration,hotline and helpdesk of operationalGNT (graphic-technological overlayof the signalling system). In total there aremore than 130 GPC computers in the CzechRepublic and the Slovak Republic.The maintenance department SZT providesthe maintenance of telecommunicationand signalling technologies in servicecenters Skalice, Svitavy (for Brno – ČeskáTřebová line) and Moravský Písek (for Hodonín– Nedakonice line section).The warranty service is provided continuously24 hours a day and 365 days a yearaccording to the emergency needs.44


Logistic Plant Olomouc covers an area of44,460 square meters and the total area ofheated halls is 6,370 square meters. Alongwith own road transport the plant is a logisticscentre of the company. Services relatedto purchase, storage, sale, distributionetc. are provided not only for all plants andorganizational units of the company, butalso for subsidiaries in the Czech Republicas well as abroad and for other businesspartners. A convenient location predestinesthe plant to hold emergency reserves for accidentsand unexpected events. The originalsystem storage stackers from the seventiesare gradually replaced by modern, efficient,computer-controlled technology tohelp make our work accurate and effective.The factory area is also consignment storagefor telecommunication and signallingwhich is one of the largest in the Czech andSlovak Republics.Last year, which was significantly influencedby the ongoing economic crisisand pressure on saving of public sectorin the Czech Republic, material in the totalvolume of CZK 1 823 million passedthrough our storage, of which for our plantsin the volume of CZK 775 million and materialfor customers abroad (including foreignsupplies) amounted to CZK 1 048 million.With the transfer of corporate activitiesoutside the Czech Republic, demands forlogistics are increasing but the basic ideato deliver goods on time and to the rightplace, remains. Last year we provided alldeliveries to Slovakia for the constructionof the V. railway corridor Nove Mesto nadVahom – Zlatovce and Trencianská Teplá –Beluša through our own trucking; also deliveriesfor marshalling yard Žilina – Tepličkaand for the project of the VI. railway corridorŽilina – Krásno nad Kysucou were completed.Deliveries to Lithuania for the Kaunas –Kybartai project, to Serbia and Montenegrocontinued. In cooperation with external carriersthe goods and materials were deliveredto Belarus for the Polock-Vitebsk line sectionand to Malaysia.The Logistic Plant also participated ina significant way to the ongoing restructuringof the company. During the year activityof the Production Plant Praha ended andthe newly established Production WorkplacePraha with its staff was transferredto the Logistic Plant. In terms of accountingany remaining material, intermediateproducts and finished products were transferredand physically stored in Olomoucfor further use. All problems associatedwith the transfer of production programsto two other production plants and relatedchanges in material and document supplythe Logistic Plant employees managedthrough personal initiative during the normaloperation.At the same time the first part ofthe supply centralization and warehousingservices within AŽD Praha have been completed.Warehouses of the Production PlantOlomouc were incorporated under the LogisticPlant Olomouc including their employeesand simultaneously the number ofjobs in the Logistic Plant and the ProductionPlant was reduced. In the ProductionPlant Olomouc storage areas adaptationof storage sites were made, open area waspartially roofed, and changes in the supplyof materials for production were graduallyintroduced.Although the global economic declinewas reflected in the reduction of requiredvolume for supplies and in increase of demandson services where emphasise onspeed and quality of service was muchgreater, the Logistic Plant managed tomeet all challenges of the last year and tocompete in the ever-increasing competition.46


In the past year, AŽD Praha continued inthe active involvement in and monitoringof the technical and legislative processwithin the framework of the EU in the fieldof railway security equipment and railwaytransport in general. We are capable ofinfluencing many such processes thanksto our experts who work directly in selectedworking expert groups preparingthe legislation of technical standards andspecifications. Specifications created inthe EU bodies and subsequently adoptedas legally binding in the EU member countriesvery often specify the activities andfunctionality of equipment and productsdeveloped and delivered by AŽD. This activeapproach of our company has severaleffects:• the involvement in the standardizationprocess has saved significant funds forour own technical development, sincewe respond to the planned changes eitherby comments or timely adjustmentsof our systems,• our company is known as a reliable suppliercaring for the technical developmentin its field of business,• our experts cooperate with experts fromcompetitive companies, with representativesof railways as well as of Europeanauthorities and jointly deepen the knowledgein their fields of business.In the past period, basic technical interoperabilitydirectives (TID) were reviewedwithin the framework of the European Union.The TID that is the most important forour company – CCS subsystem “Control andSecurity” – newly resolves the requirementsfor the electromagnetic compatibility andfor general cooperation of the subsystemsvehicle and signaling equipment. Unfortunately,certain issues have remained unresolvedand therefore new driving vehiclesused for the railway infrastructure may notalways be compatible. UNISIG and ERA arecompleting changes to the ERTMS systemspecifications and issue of Baseline 3 ETCSis planned for April 2012.The above-mentioned activities havebeen provided in cooperation with the Unionof European Railway Industries (UNIFE)having its registered office in Brussels,which is a very important partner of the EuropeanCommission in the field of the railwaytraffic. Cooperation also takes place48

with individual manufacturers in the fieldof the railway industry. AŽD Praha is a longtermmember of UNIFE as well as the CzechAssociation of Railway Enterprises (ACRI)and an important member of the nationalTechnological Platform “Interoperability ofthe Railway Infrastructure”. The importanceof the cooperating world-wide RailwayFederation (UIC) having its registered officein Paris is currently lower for Europe due toits world-wide focus, but despite this wehave remained a partner of the cited federationin particular in the field of railwayresearch.2011 was the year when we closedAŽD’s permanent office in Brussels, sincethe main planned objectives have beenfulfilled. The more than three-year operationof this office allowed us to penetrateinto new fields and the cooperation commencedwithin the framework of the activitiesof the office have been further developed.The involvement of AŽD’s expertinto professional, standard-creating andlegislative activities is profound. The mostrecent great success achieved withinthe framework of the permanent office wasthe establishment of the association RailForum Europe, which consists of deputiesof the European Parliament and in whichcommittees concerning the railway transportare represented. The task of the Forumis to create a discussion platform aimed atimproving the understanding of the railwaytransport issues and making easierthe cooperation in development of jointstrategies and initiatives between deputiesof the EU Parliament and the railwaytransport. The chairman of the parliamentarytransport committee Mr. Simpson said:“The Rail Forum Europe should increasethe visibility of the railway transport amongthe authors of EU policies and help the railwayto play a decisive role in the EU’s transportpolicy.“Our cooperation within the frameworkof UNISIG continues, where we, togetherwith the other members of this consortium,are creating a specification of the ERTMS/ETCS system. The concept of the ERTMS/ETCS system has successfully conqueredthe whole world and more than a half ofthe installations of the ETCS system havebeen carried out outside the Europeancontinent. The ERTMS concept has thus gotoutside Europe and must be opened fornon-European customers. ETCS’s SteeringCommittee in UNIFE and the consortiumUNISIG have come with a new approach,where the European “E” in the abbreviation49

ERTMS will be replaced by the global “G”.The superstructure GRTMS will contributeto extending the functionality which opensa way to new markets.Our experts working for individual organisations,commissions and researchprojects spread the good reputation of AŽDand strengthen our position as the majorsupplier of transport signalling, telecommunications,controlling and automatingequipment in the Czech Republic and asan important European supplier of suchsystems.50


The fiscal year 2010/2011 was significantlyaffected by the world-wide economic crisis.AŽD’s management reacted to suchsituation and eliminated decisive negativeinfluences and continued in the resultsachieved in the previous years.AŽD’s commercial turnover in the amountof CZK 3.6 billion generated in the fiscalyear 2010/2011 is lower in comparison withthe previous periods as a result of the limitationof construction works. AŽD Praha hascompensated the decrease of the volumeof construction works in the Czech Republicby entry to foreign markets, where ourtechnology has been successfully placed.However, signaling systems must be adjustedfor each foreign locality in terms of locallaws and transport regulations and moststart from the already operated technicalequipment and practices, including controllingin the language in question. In certaincountries, the whole signaling systemmust undergo a new local approval process.The entry to foreign markets is therefore significantlydemanding as regards technology,trade and time, but contributes to AŽD’slong-term stabilization and prosperity.AŽD Praha has responded to the decreaseof the volume of construction worksby decreasing the working capacity bythe controlled reducing of the numberof AŽD Praha employees to 1,557 (–197).As a result of the winding up of the manufacturingplant in Prague, the productionhas been transferred to the manufacturingplants in Olomouc and Brno, wherebythe utilization of their capacities has improved.AŽD Praha spent CZK 217 million forthe research and development in the periodmonitored.The composition of assets has been significantlyaffected by receivables, the majorityof which are within the maturity period,since the conditions in most orders setforth a long maturity period for invoices.By the distribution of the maturity of individualparts of performed works set forthin contracts, AŽD supports the sales, especiallyin the case of foreign orders. Reportedreceivables are gainful and paid withinthe due dates.In the assessed period, AŽD Praha reportednon-tax deductible reserves fora new generation of electronic signalingsystems, which are undergoing a longtermtesting operation and for which AŽDPraha has confirmed five-year guarantees.The situation in AŽD’s financing hasbeen stabilized, where the turnover hasbeen appropriately reflected in trade debtoraccounts and drawing on bank loans.AŽD Praha has not acquired any assetsthrough financial lease and has no due liabilitiesarising from the health and social insuranceas well as no tax arrears of payment.AŽD Praha has established organizationalunit in the Slovak Republic and Montenegro.AŽD Praha has gained controlling andsubstantial interests in ten subsidiaries inthe Czech Republic and in seven subsidiariesin foreign countries (three in Slovakiaand one in Belarus, Bulgaria, Serbia andthe USA).52
