New vehicles

More and more train manufacturers are using our systems for their new vehicles as well. Siemens applies our converters for their new light-rail vehicles of the Neoval series (Traction) sold world- wide, Scomi Rail has chosen Strukton (Traction/APS) for all their new monorail projects (currently in Sao Paulo and Kuala Lumpur) and BHEL from India have their new EMUs equipped with the full range of power electronics from Strukton (Traction/APS/TCMS).

The Technology Transfer Programme is unique since it allows train manufacturers to build up a proper power electronics knowledge in house. This programmes provides in-depth training (in the Netherlands and on-site), full documentation and allows local production of systems. The programme is tailor-made to the wished of the customer and is especially valued in upcoming railway markets. Currently this programme is successfully applied in South-Africa and India.
