Televic iCoM Selected by Hitachi Rail Europe for the IEP Programme

Televic Rail has been selected by Hitachi Rail Europe as supplier for the new Super Express Trains for the Intercity Express Programme (IEP) which will operate in the UK.

Televic will deliver the Passenger Information and Seat Reservation Systems which will be based on Televic’s latest iCoM technologies. The system will also feature the off-board LiveCom tool which allows for the organisation and operation of passenger information-related matters.

The contract award covers the design of the systems, the delivery of the first systems for the pre-series trains that will be built in Japan, and subsequent delivery directly to Hitachi’s new UK plant in Newton Aycliffe, UK, where the series production will take place, as well as a provision for long term maintenance support.

Both companies have further agreed to a long term collaboration towards joint innovation with a view to serve the European market.
