Connect Group validated by Deutsche Bahn and RATP

Kampenhout – Following validation by Deutsche Bahn and RATP, Connect Group has now entered  serial production of a number of strategic products in the Railway market.

Deutsche Bahn recently validated Connect Group to supply and maintain auxiliary converters and  different electrical modules for  various applications.  Deutsche Bahn is one of the world’s leading passenger and logistics companies with headquarters in Berlin, Germany. This approval helps secure continuity in the coming years for Connect Group’s facilities in the Czech Republic and Belgium.

At the same time, Connect Group has been approved to supply HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) modules for the RATP’s new MI09 double-decker trains. The RATP Group (Régie Autonome des Transports Parisiens) is the world's fifth largest public transport company, operating all modes of collective mobility – bus, metro, trains and trams – in and around Paris. The MI09 electric trains operate on RER Line A, one of the busiest railway lines in Europe, transporting more than a million commuters per day. With each train carrying up to 1,725 people at up to 120 km/h, user comfort is a vital concern.

Validation by these two operators is a major breakthrough for Connect Group. Both Deutsche Bahn and RATP require the highest standards in the market. Working for Deutsche Bahn and RATP reinforces the different Railway references Connect Group already holds, proving that Connect Group is a reliable partner for the long term and is willing to continuously invest in this market.
