Medcom appreciated by Siemens Mobility

At this year’s InnoTrans, Siemens Mobility awarded the suppliers who had contributed most to the company’s development and success. Medcom was appreciated in the category that is extremely important to us – ‘Technology and Innovations’.

Medcom has been cooperating with Siemens Mobility for many years, providing, among others things, converters for trams offered on the North American market – to Calgary, San Diego, Seattle and Orange County. This time, the management of Siemens Mobility appreciated the excellent cooperation in two projects: OESS – the on-board energy storage system for trams, and EEB – a series of power supply systems for passenger carriages.

On-board energy storage system

The OESS (Onboard Energy Storage System) system developed by Medcom has turned the S700 tram for Charlotte into a hybrid vehicle, allowing it to cover part of the route without power supply from the catenary. The system we designed is a development of a prototype solution that was previously tested in San Diego. The solution used in Charlotte has been in use for over a year and successfully meets the stringent requirements of the end customer. Handing over the award, Rainer Straub, Chief Purchasing Officer at Siemens Mobility said: ‘The success of this system has allowed Siemens Mobility to emerge as a leader in battery-powered light rail vehicles’.

Power supply system for passenger carriages

Another product of our company was also recognised at the Siemens Mobility Supplier Awards gala: the power supply system for passenger carriages. The Electric Equipment Box (EBB) device powers passenger carriages and charges emergency power batteries. Carriages equipped with this solution are operated in Canada and the USA. The representative of Siemens Mobility emphasised that ‘the EEB solution became part of the platform, allowing a weight reduction of 600 kg and a reduction of lead times by 3 months’.

Reiner Straub also appreciated Medcom’s long-term technical achievements, as well as its problem-solving approach and proactive cooperation.

– Thank you for the award, because it is a confirmation that an individual approach to customer needs combined with the strength of our technology and engineering knowledge is the best recipe for success. The award is of course a great pleasure for any supplier. However, the greatest satisfaction for us is always the successful completion of subsequent technically demanding projects. Working with a Partner such as Siemens Mobility, we are confronted with technical challenges, which in many cases are innovations on a global scale. I am glad that the cooperation between our engineers and project managers brings such excellent results – said Piotr Wroński, vice-president of Medcom, who received the award.
