IP1 Traction TD1 and Brakes TD5 – Phase 2

Project description

More efficient traction systems for lighter and quieter trains

Traction systems are a train’s propelling heart: they convert electricity from the grid into energy to move the vehicle. The EU-funded project PINTA2 is developing the next generation of train traction systems. They seek to reduce weight, volume and noise emissions of traction equipment, decrease maintenance cost of traction components, and allow for lower life-cycle costs of the overall traction system. The new traction systems could increase performance in terms of frequency and passengers. This should apply to trains in all platforms: metro, tramways, sub-urban, regional and high-speed. The project plans to bring a more efficient traction system to the market by 2024.
