The first Aptis bus with floors made in MCG is already in circulation
The first Aptis unit was recently delivered to Compagnie des Transports Strasbourgeois by Alstom. But the entry into service of this 100% electric Alstom bus is also a special moment for MCG: one of the differentiating bases of Aptis is the large structural floor produced by the MCG transportation teams.
MCG is delighted to see the result of an intense product development process that took three years and that included multiple engineering simulations, validation tests, and prototypes.
MCG transportation is today a proud part of Alstom‘s supply chain system and this is a project that endows MCG teams with even more extensive know-how in the development, certification, and production of floor systems for trains and buses.
The use of different materials, technologies, and solutions is at the service of a single output and objective: to successfully satisfy the increasingly demanding needs of each client.
Among the production processes of this pavement system based on composite materials is a very complex operation: the bonding of panels with dimensions of 8.5 x 2.4 meters, possible only due to the precision, advanced technologies, and experience of the teams of MCG production.
MCG transportation presents itself with a range of competitive and integrated solutions for train and bus interiors. Remember the evolution of the Aptis project at MCG:
- MCG confirms serial production of Aptis electric bus floor system
- Aptis project elevates MCG in the production of floors for trains and buses
