MSc wins a contract to update DB's ICE3 train battery chargers

MSc Traction delivers for DB the new ICE3 battery charger prototype

MSc Traction Oy has won a contract to design and deliver a test series of new battery chargers for high-speed ICE3 trains operated extensively by Deutsche Bahn. The new contract broadens MSc Traction operations with ICE3 trains considerably and is recognition for the high quality of MSc products.

The renewing of battery chargers is a part of the ICE3 renovation programme, which will be carried out during 2017-2020. The number of battery chargers to be changed can increase up to 400 pcs.

MSc Traction won the public tender competition against international competitors, and hence the order can be considered as a huge endorsement on the reliability and quality for MSc Traction products and services.

MSc Traction has delivered earlier ca. 140 special motor controllers for the ICE3 train HVAC systems during 2004 – 2018.

“We have a good track record from deliveries of ICE3 air conditioning motor controllers. We consider the quality of our work and excellent cooperation with the client as the crucial factors in winning this contract.” says Mr. Pekka Seppälä, director of design and technology at MSc Traction Oy.
