Czech technology heading for Manila
As part of the project to refurbish the tram system in Manila (Philippines), our Czech subsidiary, Cegelec Prague, won the contract to supply on-board solid state converters.
These converters, based on IGBT technology, are used to supply electrical power to the air conditioning systems on board the vehicles. They will be designed and manufactured in Cegelec’s workshops in Prague. The prototype will be tested at the end of 2019 and the production units delivered throughout 2020.
