                      Hitachi Rail announces showcase at InnoTrans 2014

                      London, 18 September, 2014 - Hitachi Rail today announced that it will be showcasing its latest rolling stock and signaling operations at InnoTrans 2014, at the Messe Berlin exhibition centre in Berlin, Germany.

                      The bi-annual rail trade fair, which takes place from September 23 to September 26 2014, will provide the company with an unrivalled opportunity to publicise recent business developments and future prospects.

                      Located on Stand 304 in Hall 4.2, Hitachi Rail will be promoting the new AT200 train, giving visitors a flavour of the latest travel experience in regional and suburban commuting.

                      The life-size train mock-up will focus on the train interiors, which are designed around passenger needs and include features such as power points, WiFi access, interactive technology for reservations, ticketing and catering, ample luggage space.

                      Hitachi Rail will also be using the event to demonstrate its European Train Control System (ETCS) and Communication Based Train Control (CBTC) systems. The on-board centred CBTC can offer efficient metro operational facilities with driverless capability, and it is this technology that has been adapted for the UK network. In addition, Hitachi has high market share of traffic management system used in Shinkansen-and metro-systems in Japan.

                      This past year has been particularly significant for Hitachi Rail, as a result of its tremendous accomplishments in the UK. It won the contract for an additional 30 trains as part of the Intercity Express Programme (IEP), bringing the total number of trains to be manufactured on both the East Coast and Great Western Main Lines to 122.
                      Construction of Hitachi's new train factory in Newton Aycliffe, in the north east of England is progressing well, and developments are taking place at maintenance depots across the country. The train factory will create over 700 jobs and, in line with the recent approval of a Hitachi Rail-sponsored University Technical College in the region, will support the skills development of the manufacturers of the future.

                      All of these achievements have been boosted by the company's work with suppliers from the UK and Europe. When the headquarters of the global rail business moved to Europe, emphasis was placed on Hitachi Rail's commitment to building a strong base here and developing supplier relationships. Hitachi has honoured this commitment and will continue to build and sustain these links as the rail business expands.

                      For more information about Hitachi Rail and its vision for rail passenger travel and signalling, please visit stand 304 in Hall 4.2 at InnoTrans 2014. Hitachi Rail is proud to be leading the way in the development of ground-breaking technological advances in the sector and would welcome the opportunity to discuss these with you.
