Ingeteam to Supply Traction Equipment for Multi-Voltage Vehicle in Czech Republic

Ingeteam has obtained a contract to design and supply traction equipment for seven multi-voltage (3kV DC/25kV 50Hz AC) electric multiple units, manufactured by PESA in Poland.

The vehicles will operate on Ústecký Kraj, Czech Republic, regional transport and will have the capacity for 110 passengers. They will operate at a maximum speed of 160km/h and are 53m long.

Ingeteam has supplied traction systems for more than 150 EMUs up- to- date.

The supply includes 14 traction converters, located on the roof, based on the INGETRAC medium power solution, and auxiliary equipment. The solution chosen is based on the three-level technology on the line side (AFE) and on the motor side.

This arrangement has been chosen to meet challenging requirements of this project and to optimise the converter’s modular design, maximising energy efficiency while minimising space needed. To simplify maintenance activities, new diagnosis tools have also been included.

Recently, Ingeteam has done an innovation effort on traction solutions for multi-voltage vehicles that will be reinforced with this supply. The Company forecasts to supply first units during first quarter of 2021. The manufacturing will take place at the converter’s plant in Ortuella (Bizkaia, Spain) factory, inaugurated in 2019.
