Within the framework of the Global Mobility Call, José Antonio Marín, Business Development Manager in Industry and Energy 4.0 at SISTEM, anticipates the homologation projects they have in progress with EMT Madrid.
In an exclusive interview with Mobility Portal Group, Marín explains that the Municipal Transport Company will conduct tests at one of their charging points before installation.
This product will undergo evaluation in the Carabanchel district, at one of the garages owned by the Madrid-based company.
It’s worth noting that this year, EMT has added the latest compressed natural gas (CNG) models to its bus fleet.
As part of the Ayuntamiento’s Madrid 360 Strategy, upcoming procurements will focus exclusively on 100% electric buses, in addition to models powered by green hydrogen.
According to the Manager, there are currently areas for improvement related to communication between charging points and buses.
“This is the challenge we are working on in the sector. Once it’s resolved, it will avoid numerous inconveniences,” he assures.
The company, part of the CPS Group, offers comprehensive solutions for installing and adapting bus and truck garages, with the aim of facilitating the transition to electric mobility.
They also collaborate on “Turnkey” projects.
“We integrate all systems and provide our customers with a end-to-end solution,” he emphasizes.
Since the 1960s, they have closely collaborated with all charging equipment manufacturers to find the best solution to meet their customers’ needs.
In this way, they adapt to the agreed use cases with users.
They also provide the necessary training so that platform managers can use the systems from the very beginning.
Consequently, they are not limited to a single brand but adapt to the project’s requirements, providing guidance as well.
The company, which initially specialized in the railway sector, has extensive experience working in the electromobility industry, especially in the heavy transport sector.
They offer a significant “know-how” to customers seeking advanced electric mobility solutions for heavy vehicles.
In this context, they participate in public tenders and also get involved in projects for clients in the heavy cargo transport sector.
Their business focus revolves around large-scale projects, including companies such as ALSA, Avanza, EMT Madrid, and TMB Barcelona.
“In any public tender that requires extensive capabilities, we can provide added value that perhaps smaller companies cannot offer,” he emphasizes.
Moreover, Marín points out that a significant portion of SISTEM’s revenue comes from contracts with the public administration, so they are “very accustomed” to bidding.
Among their success stories are projects in collaboration with ALSA and Avanza.
SISTEM at the Global Mobility Call
One of the products they distribute through Comercial Protoinsa is a 240-kilowatt model.
The technological advancement of this unit lies in its composition of 20-kilowatt modules, whereas the market norm is typically 30 kW.
This feature allows for more effective load regulation due to its lower power capacity.
Additionally, the product features two remote connection hoses, GPS, and can be customized to meet the specific needs of each customer.
Not only that, but SISTEM’s solutions also include tools to facilitate compliance with Low Emission Zones (ZBE).
They achieve this through access controls to city centers, initiatives to encourage the use of municipal parking, as well as monitoring capacity, noise, and pollution levels in critical areas.
