Establish safe and reliable rail power supply systems that meet operational requirements
As rail networks and number of trains in operation grow there is higher demand to increased frequency of acceleration and braking as well as higher airconditioning. Customers increasingly demand energy efficiency in railway power supply systems to achieve cost reductions and support a greener image. This brings new challenges for Rail manufacturers, railway infrastructure managers and operators as they need to accommodate rising energy demands, ensure constant availability and meet energy efficiency requirements.
With years of experience in the rail sector, TÜV SÜD offers proven capabilities backed by international recognition. Railway infrastructure managers and operators can ensure service reliability by utilising third-party services to establish power supply systems that meet operational parameters and applicable standards. For equipment and rolling stock manufacturers, these services facilitate access to lucrative markets while providing an edge over the competition.
