Furrer+Frey, the e-mobility and electrification engineering company, will be celebrating recent success and new technology at Innotrans 2018.


The VR Project for Berlin Main Station

Furrer+Frey has commenced work on a framework with Delhi Metro to review their electrification systems. The purpose of this contract is to create a digital twin of Delhi Metro’s infrastructure and model optimal maintenance regimes to significantly improve performance and reduce downtime.

To continue the success Furrer+Frey will be signing a Memorandum of Understanding at Innotrans to work on rapid charge stations for e-mobility buses in India. The company is a pioneer in providing quick opportunity charging solutions using their All-in-One charging stations.

They also commenced work supporting NEXUS renewing the Tyne and Wear Metro’s ageing overhead line electrification system in the UK, developing a new range of lightweight electrification cantilevers called FL200-Light. This is now in the planning stage of development for several other global metros. This range will be displayed at Innotrans.

The company prides themselves on their commitment to developing the skills of young engineers, STEM education and making engineering an attractive opportunity for those considering what to study when they leave school. In the UK, Furrer+Frey have worked with the Engineering Development Trust to work on projects with schools, colleges and universities.

Furrer+Frey has worked with Engineering Development Trust Year in Industry Students on a project to develop a virtual metro and railway world to show at Innotrans. This includes a full virtual replica of Berlin Main Station that visitors can tour through a VR headset, as well as a range of other metro sites around the world.
