During second half of the year, we have accomplished the delivery of traction systems, auxiliaries and TCMS for 2 electric locomotives for Polish manufacturer PESA. Those vehicles are already being operated by final customer, a Polish freight operator.
INGETEAM is currently working on 4 other electric locomotives equipment deliveries, that will feature the MARATHON Diesel option. Final customer will use the vehicles for leasing in the Polish market that is experiencing a significant renewal of the locomotive fleet for both freight and passengers use.
The design of the traction system ensures maximum reliability and safety conditions, together with optimum technical performance of the vehicle.
The traction converters optimizes the system in terms of costs, space and weight. Each of the traction converters incorporates two traction inverters, one by each motor, providing redundancy for the vehicle in order to improve availability rates. The auxiliary converter has a power of 180 kVA and is integrated into traction converter in order to save space and weight. The modular design has optimized the maintenance since it allows power modules to be exchanged in reduced period of time, without the need for special tools and without the need to empty the cooling circuit.
Likewise, diagnostic tools have been developed for the purpose of minimizing maintenance costs.
Ingeteam also supplies the TCMS based on plug & play concept with train (CANOpen) bus, vehicle bus and diagnostic system. The HMI has been designed upon customer requirements.
