Simulator for Stadler in the UK

Transportation | November 2017

Stadler, the Swiss rolling stock manufacturer has ordered a metro train simulator from CORYS, to be delivered, along with 52 new trains to the UK operator Merseytravel.

The full scope replica simulator will represent all the routes of the MerseyRail electrical network.  The simulator will be supplied with the CORYS tactile TACTIS instructor station enabling the instructor to manage the simulation from a tablet and to be as close as possible to the trainee. The simulator will be supplied in spring 2019 ahead of the rolling stock to enable traction conversion ahead of the commissioning of the metro trains.

This contract builds on CORYS established UK customer base with over 50 driving simulators operational and two maintenance centers.

Marie Pezé said about this new contract:
«  This is the first time we have been a supplier to Stadler in the UK. It is a real opportunity to show them our know-how and to build a long term relationship. »
