Init (innovation in traffic systems) has won the largest single order in the company’s history. The US$42.5 million (EUR35 million) contract is with a consortium of four public transport companies that operate in the Rhine-Ruhr region of Germany. The group, which carries approximately 1.3 million passengers per day in the region, comprises: Rheinbahn, Duisburger, Essener and Mülheimer. Init will be the general contractor in a project that will see the company implement a new TETRA (Terrestrial Trunked Radio) communications system and install a new Intermodal Transport Control System (ITCS) for the group over the next four years.
The company will provide the central traffic controls for the four transport companies and the necessary hardware and software for the system, which will include: on-board computers; the company’s MOBILE-ITCS equipment; and dynamic passenger information systems, which will be fitted to over 1,000 buses and trams. When completed, the TETRA trunked system, which will be implemented in conjunction with Motorola, will allow about 2,000 radio subscribers to communicate with each other. On completion, its will be one of the largest telematics project for public transport ever realized in Germany.
