Teknoware Oy supplies the interior lighting system for the new Crossrail trains. The new Crossrail train will be the first project based on the new Aventra platform. The new fleet will have 585 train cars that will serve the route that runs through London, from Reading and Heathrow in the west, through new twin-bore 21 km tunnels below central London to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east. The full fleet of Crossrail trains will be in operation in 2019.
The interior lighting system is based on LED technology and will be controlled by an Intelligent Lighting Controller (ILC). Key elements in the design have been energy efficiency, long-lifetime and low weight. A stand-alone emergency lighting system will also be incorporated.
