NORSAR and Wavetrain Systems AS suspects patent infringement by Next Generation Rail Technologies S.L.
Stiftelsen NORSAR (“NORSAR”) and Wavetrain Systems AS (“Wavetrain”) have reason to believe that the Spanish company Next Generation Rail Technologies S.L. (“NGRT”), founded by the former Wavetrain-employee Mr. Richard Aarøe, is infringing NORSAR and Wavetrain’s rights in and to a patented method and related trade secrets used, amongst others, for train detection and broken rail detection. NORSAR and Wavetrain have repeatedly approached Mr. Aarøe and NGRT addressing the infringing activities; however, Aarøe, and NGRT have not been willing to respond. NORSAR and Wavetrain will continue to protect their rights and will initiate legal measures against NGRT, Mr. Aarøe and possibly other employees of NGRT, if necessary.
