TALGO trusts FAINSA for its contract of the century with Deutsche Bahn

Recently, the Spanish manufacturer TALGO signed the largest contract in its history with German railways DB for the supply of up to 100 high-speed intercity trains.

For the equipment of these high-capacity trains, DB has put in place a very rigorous selection process for the train’s constituent systems. In the case of passenger seats, this process involved biodynamic analysis by a specialist institute in Munich, and severe comparative comfort tests that were carried out by hundreds of regular users of the medium and long-distance trains on the German network. 

One STAR RAIL prototype which has been submitted  to analysis and comfort tests by DB, October 2019

FAINSA’s new STAR RAIL model has been selected for its intrinsic characteristics, technical qualities and innovation. DB and TALGO also appreciated the development and continuous improvement capabilities that FAINSA demonstrated during the selection process. We are all extremely proud of this success as DB is one of the most prestigious operators in the world, and our seat was up against competitors who have the greatest expertise in the trade. 

With the award of this contract, FAINSA is renewing its range of High-speed Intercity seats with a state-of-the-art model. The STAR RAIL is a lightweight design, with a proven comfort, enjoying extensive equipment and a revolutionary geometry that is designed to maximize space efficiency without compromising upon passenger safety or comfort. Although this first contract is from the German market, STAR RAIL is designed for all markets, thus complying with GMRT2100 and APTA regulations that prescribe dynamic impact tests in Britain and the United States.

Our seats at IREE 2019 in New Delhi

During 22 to 24 October FAINSA exhibited our seats at IREE 2019 ( Indian Rail Equipment Exhibition) in New Delhi, India.

FAINSA had already supplied First and Standard class seats on the very prestigious Vande Bharat Express Train, the first semi High Speed (max 160km/h) electric train built fully in India. This project was code named “Train 18” because the train was designed and built from scratch in only 18 months by Integral Coach Factory in Chennai.  Here at IREE, we showcased the very same MD seat presented for First Class in Vande Bharat Express. This specification demanded a high degree passenger amenities such a huge recline, power sockets to every single place and a huge table.  The seat even rotated 180 degrees to give a passenger a choice of airline or a bay configuration.

The market is also dramatically growing with new Metro trains.  FAINSA is the incumbent seat supplier to Delhi Metro (DMRC) RS10 project that was one of the largest contracts for Metro style cars in the world.  Here, FAINSA exceed a particular challenge of a fold-up bench along the assembly being fully waterproofed.  This innovation allowed Rotem, the train builder,  to safely and efficiently stow away important electrical equipment.  So during the IREE fair, FAINSA also presented a very similar DMRC RS10 design but this time fitting some newly formed stainless steel shells.  This new innovation certainly indeed created a wealth of interest from different Indian regions.

There was an anticipated 12,000 visitors to the Fair and we certainly did our best to answer every single question that was asked.
