Innovative components

A range of innovative components will be installed in the IFW and their effects in terms of noise, energy consumption and cost-effectiveness tested during the course of the project. The following figure shows which innovative components will be installed in the various IFWs. During selection of these components and negotiations with suppliers, great care was taken to ensure that, generally speaking, even on completion of the contract research, the selected components can be economically deployed in existing and new rolling stock. That is to say, components that were technically interesting, but insufficiently cost-effective from a current perspective, are not being trialed in the IFWs.
