Alstom in Spain receives the "muévete Verde" award from Madrid City Council
Alstom, a global leader in smart and sustainable mobility, has been awarded the 'Muévete verde' award organised by the Madrid City Council and the Empresa Municipal de Transporte de Madrid (EMT Madrid), which recognises the best initiatives in sustainable mobility.
Specifically, Alstom Digital Services team in Spain received the award in the category of 'Digital transformation of mobility'. The jury valued the application of new exponential digital technologies (such as IoT, Big Data, Digital Twins and Artificial Intelligence) in the maintenance of trains to increase the fleet reliability and availability, reduce the energy consumption and improve passenger comfort.
To this end, in recent years Alstom has deployed a new Digital Services site in Madrid, where digital tools are used to monitor and analyse urban operators (such as Metro Ligero Oeste, Barcelona Tramway or Murcia Tramway), and high-speed services (such as Renfe or Ouigo).
In its close to two years of operation, the following milestones, among others, have been reached:
More than 80 trains/cars are analysed currently in real time
More than 100 million pieces of data analysed every hour
Up to 30% reduction of energy consumption in operation, thanks to the use of energy analysis and eco-driving systems.
30% downtime of the fleet, thanks to the prevention of incidents.
+25% productivity of each train, by reducing maintenance stays.
+15% extension of equipment lifetime
