Manufacture of energy efficiency measurement cards for Bombardier trains

Bombardier has hired Ikusi to manufacture and test 190 cards for measuring the power efficiency of its trains through its Services Division in Spain.

Ikusi is conducting this project for Bombardier through the Canadian company's Services Division in Spain –a division that, given its long experience, has been designated the knowledge and development center for new products and services relating to energy savings throughout Bombardier. This is a significant topic, following the liberalization of the railway sector and the changes in the electric consumption of traction on the European level, which have put an end to the old practice by infrastructure administrators of transferring the electric bill to the public operator. In the future, operators will pay solely and exclusively for the power they consume. A new European standard regulating on-board power consumption measuring equipment has appeared in response to these changes. And the first measure to reduce power consumption, and with it the bills to pay, depends on the measurement and study of how that power is consumed. This is where the cards that Ikusi is helping to manufacture come into play.

The Canadian company Bombardier, specializing in the construction of railway materials and systems, has been an Ikusi client for many years. Both companies have worked together in projects for on-board systems and in infrastructure such as the driverless train of Madrid Barajas Airport, the subway and the light rail system of Mexico, among others.
