IVU Traffic Technologies won a contract to deliver integrated standard solution IVU.suite Letbane på Ring 3, a new suburban railway for the Greater Copenhagen area with a total length of a 28 km served by 29 stops.
IVU has been tasked with installing a complete system for fleet management for the 29 Siemens Avenio trams that will operate the new line.
“The IVU systems have put us in an ideal position to successfully complete this major project. Thanks to their flexibility and their broad functional scope, the integrated solutions from IVU not only meet all of our requirements, they also completely satisfy the operational needs and standards of our customer and the future operator of the Hovedstadens Letbane,” Peter Løbner Hansen, Project Director at Siemens, said.
Under the project, all trams will be fitted with an IVU.box.touch on-board computer. Together with the control software IVU.cockpit, this computer supports the driver by providing important information on the trip course, establishes a connection to the control centre and supplies information to passengers. The ITCS IVU.fleet in turn continuously processes vehicle location data, which helps the dispatch managers to react quickly and appropriately to changes in the traffic situation. The passenger information system IVU.realtime is directly connected to the control system and provides the incoming actual data to passengers in real time – on digital displays, online and via an app.
By 2025, 14 million passengers will use the Letbane på Ring 3, suburban railway, which will provide services from the Lyngby municipality in the north of Copenhagen to Ishøj in the south west in just under an hour.
