About signing the agreement with the ETKC
Joint Stock Company “Rīgas elektromašīnbūves rūpnīca” on March 27, 2019 had signed an agreement with Competence Center of Energy and Transport (Competence Center) on the implementation of the research “Design and development of traction drive systems with supercapacitors for the metro” within the framework of the Competence Center of Energy and Transport project.
Project number – Nr.188.8.131.52/18/A/001.
The area of intellectual specialization chosen by Competence Center is intellectual energy, which includes three main trends:
· General issues of intellectual energy;
· Solutions for intellectual engineering systems and energy production;
· Intellectual energy and transport.
Project implementation period from 01.04.2019 till 31.12.2021.
The total project amount funding from the ERAF is 4 708 111.50 EUR.
The aim of the research is to develop a traction drive with energy storage by means of supercapacitors for the needs of the rolling stock of the subway. Electrical equipment set is provided for installation in metro trains moving in tunnels and in open sections of the track with a maximum speed of 90 km/h.
Period of research from 01.04.2019 till 31.03.2021.
