Be-Ge Savas Seating BV is participating 27th and 28th of February at the 15th congress ‘Fire protection of rolling stock 2019’ in Berlin. Issues at this two days congress are fire safety in railway vehicles, TSI loc & pass and the EN 45545.
The deliveries of the driver seats Be-Ge 3400 for the 10 additional Citadis trams that the city of Bordeaux has ordered from Alstom are foreseen in Q2 and Q3 / 2019. The city of Bordeaux has one of the largest tram fleets in France. The design and assembly of all trains takes place at the Alstom site in Aytré.
In close collaboration with the tram constructor CAF in Spain, Be-Ge Savas Seating has designed a comfortable driver’s seat. This seat is distinguished by the special, eccentric turning mechanism that can be easily operated by the driver with the ergonomically shaped operating handle.
Besides driver and co-driver seats we also have a large product range of office and 24h seats. One of these 24h seats is the BE-GE 300.
Last month we have delivered 20 luxury driver seats to our customer. These quality ergonomic seats of the type Be-Ge 87-54 will be build in in the new Avenio trams of Siemens.
After an intense contact with the customer we have build in, on customers’ location at a recycling company, a Be-Ge 3100 with several options including a suspension. In this seat configuration it was possible to keep the existing joysticks unchanged. With this seat configuration there is maximum side support and comfort for the driver.
The year 2019 has started well. After a trial period in which several drivers were able to test different seats, our customer has decided for the Be-Ge Type 80-18. In total 9 seats will be delivered and build in at customer location.
