Project details

An earlier project for which Strukton delivered its auxiliary converters is the Amsterdam metro. Strukton has also delivered its auxiliary converters for the monorail in São Paulo.

Strukton’s delivery of auxiliary converters for metro line A in Toulouse has taken place from 2013-2015.

The customer for this project, operator Tisséo, runs several metro lines operating the driverless VAL vehicles, next to buses and trams. Tisséo-Toulouse has carried out a complete refurbishment programme (incl. interior) for the VAL206 vehicles. 

In 2011, Strukton provided the operator Tisséo with a new IGBT traction system (DC-Chopper) for the VAL206 in Toulouse. These traction converters operate successfully.
