Railway traction systems supplier Ingeteam has contracted with Talgo to supply equipment for four high-speed train tractor units in Uzbekistan. Talgo are a Spanish manufacturer of passenger trains and maintenance systems. The contract relates to the supply of the engineering of an electric system, traction chain equipment, battery chargers, control systems and high voltage switchgear. Ingeteam will also supply the control electronics, which will comply with Uzbekistan’s signalling and communications regulations.

Ingeteam has already established maintenance teams in the country, who will deliver the coverage for these vehicles following completion of the commissioning process. The first tractor unit will be fitted by the beginning of 2017. It will be composed of 11 cars, which will operate at a top speed of 250km/h.
Uzbekistan High-Speed Train
Ingeteam has been involved with the Talgo project since 2011, when it supplied equipment for the Tashkent–Samarkanda high-speed line. Two of the new tractor units will operate on this line. The other two will operate on the new Tashkent–Bukhara high speed line.
Ingeteam is a company built on the foundations of R&D, specialising in electrical engineering and the development of electrical equipment, motors, generators and frequency converters.
It deploys its products in four main sectors: energy, industry, marine and railway traction, seeking to optimise energy consumption while maximising generating efficiency.
The company operates in Asia, Europe and North and South America and has more than 3 000 employees. Ingeteam has engineering centres worldwide.
Railway Power Control and Electronics
Ingeteam designs and supplies complete solutions based on in-house technological developments in the field of railway control and power electronics, with the goal of maximising the availability, energy efficiency and performance of railways operators, as well as offering comfort and safety.
INGETEAM is an IRIS certified company.
Rolling Stock Electrical Solutions, Design and Engineering
Our capabilities and experience in the railway sector allow us to offer advanced solutions from the vehicle definition, design and engineering, up to the turnkey supply of on-board electrical solutions, for both new rolling stock projects and fleet modernisation.
From the initial phase of a project we contribute our experience in analysis of a system's performance. Starting (in the case of a modernisation project) with the original system, right up to the final phase of installing the new system, we offer optimal solutions in terms of both performance and cost.
We execute the specifications for all on-board electrical components, traction systems, train control systems (TCMS), auxiliary power supplies, communication systems, signalling systems, and security and comfort systems, integrating said systems into the engineering of the train.
Our engineers proceed to programme the vehicle's various control systems, and support them through their commissioning and subsequent approval, thus providing a turnkey service for our customers. Finally, we specify and integrate auxiliary elements for the traction system, like pantographs or transformers.
Our objective is to contribute towards significant improvements to railway operation, focusing especially on operating costs, reliability, availability,modularity, maintenance and energy consumption.
Train Propulsion Systems, Traction Converters and Auxiliary Power Supply
Our traction systems, including traction converters, electrical machines and auxiliary elements, cover the entire range of catenary voltages: 750VDC, 1,500VDC, 3,000VDC, 15kVAC and 25kVAC for light tramcars, metros, EMUs, rail tractor units and high-speed locomotives.
We design and manufacture auxiliary power supply systems for rolling stock that are light, modular and compact for the entire range of catenary voltages, with the possibility of being integrated into the traction converter.
Our offer includes battery chargers based on resonant or high-frequency circuits to minimise the space required and the weight, and that can be integrated with the auxiliary converter itself.
Railway Kinematic Energy Recovery System
Ingeteam has developed and installed a system to recover kinematic energy in railways systems, which solves existing energy braking recovery limitations, feeding back to the electricity grid the energy that would be burnt on the train's resistance. The projects already deployed show savings of up 30%. The energy recovered can also be used or stored, depending on operators needs.
The system proposed, INGEBER, can be integrated into current traction substations without the need to modify the existing system.We offer operators an analysis of their system's energy output balance, as a previous step to the economical analysis and the technical specification and dimensioning of the system.
