TALGO confía en FAINSA el Contrato del Siglo con Deutsche Bahn

Recientemente, el constructor español TALGO ha firmado el contrato más importante de su historia con los Ferrocarriles Alemanes, DB, para el suministro de hasta 100 trenes Intercity de Alta Velocidad

Para el equipamiento de estos trenes de alta capacidad (560 plazas), DB ha exigido procesos muy rigurosos de selección de sistemas, que, en el caso de las butacas de pasajeros, supuso el análisis biodinámico por un Instituto especializado de Munich, y el posterior test de confort comparativo entre centenares de usuarios habituales de los servicios de Media y Larga Distancia de la red alemana.

Uno de los prototipos STAR RAIL que serían sometidos a análisis y test de Confort por DB. Octubre 2019

El resultado de este proceso es que el nuevo modelo STAR RAIL de FAINSA ha sido el seleccionado, tanto por las características propias del asiento y las innovaciones que supone, cómo por la capacidad Técnica que DB y Talgo han apreciado en FAINSA para el desarrollo y la mejora continua del producto.

Este hecho colma nuestra satisfacción, no sólo por el éxito que supone en sí mismo, sino por la entidad y respeto que merecen los competidores con los que se comparó nuestro producto, que se cuentan entre los más prestigiosos y expertos del mundo.

Con la adjudicación de este contrato, FAINSA renueva su gama de asientos Intercity y de Alta velocidad con modelo de ultimísima generación, el STAR RAIL, de confort ya contrastado, completísimo equipamiento, peso ligero y geometría revolucionaria para facilitar la alta capacidad sin comprometer ni la seguridad ni la comodidad del pasajero. Aunque el primer contrato operará en el mercado alemán, STAR RAIL ha sido concebido para todos los mercados, y resaltamos con ello las normativas GMRT y APTA que prescriben tests de impacto dinámico en Gran Bretaña, parte de la Commonwealth y los Estados Unidos.

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.
