The Alpha Trains Group has closed a general agreement with INTERAUTOMATION Deutschland GmbH.
The ceremonious contract signing took place on the 22nd of September on the InnoTrans 2016.
For the contract signing met: Shaun Mills, CEO Alpha Trains, Thomas Schmidt, Managing Director (Passenger Division) Alpha Trains and Manuel Mang CEO INTERAUTOMATION Deutschland GmbH as well as Andreas Langenhan Sales Director INTERAUTOMATION.
The contract encloses the delivery of components for systems of automatic passenger counting and real-time passenger information for rail passenger transport.
Alpha Trains and INTERAUTOMATION already work together for many years successfully.
„With this general agreement we are based on the good experiences of the past and want to co-operate in the future with common projects even more narrowly”, says Jörg Hagemeyer, Engineering Director (Passenger Division) Alpha Trains.
With the retrofitting of 44 passenger trains of the type Flirt for Teutoburger-Wald-Netz (TWN) and the Hellweg-Netz (HWN) a component of the general agreement is called away with the installation of an automatic-passenger-counting-system for the first time. These complement the real-time passenger information systems, which were already delivered in a former project phase of INTERAUTOMATION.
After a change in the timetable on December 15, 2014 the Niederbarnimer Eisenbahn AG (NEB) took over the operation of six track lines in East Brandenburg. All of the 15 RegioShuttle vehicles in action are equipped by Interautomation: These solutions are Automatic Passenger Counting, Dynamic Passenger Information and On Time Management with interfaces to the data management system InLineWeb and several interfaces to third party systems.
