RECET4RAIL will contribute to main objectives of Shift2Rail Innovation Programme 1 – “Cost efficient and reliable trains” and Technical Demonstrator 1.1 “Traction System demonstrator”.
IP1 deals with the design of rolling stock, which plays a key role for the attractiveness of rail transport. The train design must meet the requirements of the railway undertakings and the urban operators (who are the main customers of the rail supply industry), in order to deliver high-quality and cost-efficient services to their customers.
TD 1.1 - Traction system will develop new traction components and subsystems using mainly silicon carbide (SiC) technologies which lead to new architectures. The work will produce TDs (including a traction system based on independently rotating wheels) to implement into a Metro, a Regional train and a High-Speed Train.
