About the project

Enotrac is supporting SZU with a market study as part of a forthcoming procurement of new multiple units. The aim of the study is to clarify whether vehicle manufacturers have vehicle concepts that can meet the specific requirements of SZU.

At the core of the clarifications are the requirements for rapid, high frequency passenger turnover with consideration of the existing infrastructure. Subsequently, a recommendation is to be made on the most viable vehicle concept.


Our contribution

In cooperation with a specialised engineering firm for traffic technology / passenger flow, Enotrac prepared a market study with a focus on fast passenger turnover based on the existing infrastructure of SZU.

Firstly, Enotrac developed suitable requirement specifications which were used as a basis for engagement with rolling stock suppliers. Suppliers’ responses were analysed and summarised, and a recommendation was subsequently made as the basis for the fleet strategy.

In this project, the Enotrac team was able to successfully combine the competences of different departments. From the compilation of requirements and the evaluation of concepts, to contact with customers and coordination with other companies, as well as preparing the documentation, the entire project was carried out from a single source. This provided SZU with a solid basis on which to make their decision. Enotrac is currently supporting SZU in the procurement process.
