HVDC Light transmission system will help bring 1,000 megawatts of power to Mumbai.

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND, July 22, 2022 - (JCN Newswire) - Hitachi Energy, a market and technology leader in transmission, distribution and grid automation solutions, today announced it has won a major order from Adani Electricity Mumbai Infra Limited, part of India's largest privately-owned power company Adani, to provide a high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission system which will link Kudus to Mumbai, on India's west coast.

Mumbai is experiencing a rapid increase in electricity consumption, seeing peak demand increasing to 3,850 megawatts (MW) in 2022, of which around 2,100 MW was supplied from outside sources(1). The new HVDC link will supply up to 1,000 MW of electricity, increasing power from outside of the city by almost 50 percent. The link will strengthen the existing transmission infrastructure and help Adani to ensure a reliable power supply in the region.

Globally, power loads in cities are increasing, especially in densely populated areas where land is already scarce, and difficulties can arise whenever new right-of-way must be secured for traditional transmission lines. HVDC technology enables large amounts of high-quality electricity to be delivered where it is most needed with complete control, with a very compact transmission system.

Mumbai is one of the world's most densely populated cities, with a population of over 20 million, and, by utilizing Hitachi Energy's compact HVDC system and 50 kilometers of underground cables rather than overhead lines, almost 2.3 square kilometers of land will be saved - the equivalent of more than 320 soccer pitches.

"Our HVDC systems have tremendous potential for bringing large amounts of electricity directly into cities, such as Mumbai, where it is needed most but space is severely limited," said Andreas Berthou, Global Product Group Manager of HVDC and HVDC Service of Hitachi Energy's Grid Integration business. "As the world becomes more sustainable, electricity will be the backbone of the entire energy system."

Earlier this year Mumbai unveiled its Climate Action Plan(2), aiming towards becoming the first city to become carbon neutral in South Asia. The plan focuses on six sectors, including decarbonizing Mumbai's energy grid, building energy-efficient and climate-resilient infrastructure and promoting low carbon mobility solutions. This HVDC link will be a crucial step to modernizing the city and state grids, and essential to the fruition of the Climate Action Plan.

Hitachi Energy has an impressive HVDC track record in India, where it introduced the technology over 30 years ago with the Vindhyachal project in 1989. Raigarh-Pugalur is Hitachi Energy's sixth HVDC project in India and the second UHVDC installation, following the multi- terminal North-East Agra link.(3)

Hitachi Energy's HVDC solution combines world-leading expertise in HVDC converter valves, the MACH digital control platform(4) converter power transformers and high-voltage

switchgear, as well as in system studies, design and engineering, supply, installation supervision and commissioning.

HVDC Light is a voltage source converter technology developed by Hitachi Energy. It is the preferred technology for many grid applications, including interconnecting countries, integrating renewables and "power-from-shore" connections to offshore production facilities. HVDC Light's defining features include uniquely compact converter stations and exceptionally low electrical losses.

Hitachi Energy pioneered commercial HVDC technology almost 70 years ago and has delivered more than half of the world's HVDC projects.

Killexams : Hitachi Energy Links TenneT, TransnetBW with HVDC Transmission System

Hitachi Energy won a major transmission order from TenneT and TransnetBW, two of Germany’s four transmission system operators, to supply a transmission solution for the SuedLink DC4 high-voltage direct current (HVDC) interconnection between the north and south of the country.

SuedLink DC4 will play a crucial role in Germany’s energy transition, enabling a reduction in the use of fossil fuels and helping the country achieve carbon neutrality by 2045.

Using Hitachi Energy’s HVDC Light technology, SuedLink DC4 will transfer up to 2,000 MW of emission-free electricity, enough to power 5 million German households. The link will efficiently transmit electricity for 550 kilometers underground, at ±525 kilovolts, sending wind power from the north to the industrial south, or alternatively solar power from the south to the north when needed.

Hitachi Energy will supply an HVDC Light converter station at each end of SuedLink DC4 to convert AC power from the transmitting grid to DC for delivery through the link, and back to AC for transfer to the receiving grid. The contract includes three cable section stations to speed up fault detection in the link.

As part of its long-term commitment to Germany’s energy transition, Hitachi Energy has recently won or completed orders for solutions that integrate large-scale renewables. These include the converter stations for the NordLink HVDC interconnector between Germany and Norway, the converter stations for the connection of the 900-megawatt DolWin5 offshore wind farm in the German North Sea, the Kriegers Flak Combined Grid Solution which connects the German power grids with two offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea and Denmark, and power quality solutions to enable more renewable energy to flow from north to south Germany.

Killexams : Smarter Vegetation Management

Why do we love statistics? Well, they help simplify multifaceted issues in terms that are more easily understood. So often studies use abstract notions that would be better explained in simpler terms, and this is where statistics shine. Recently a whitepaper popped up in the virtual inbox discussing the leading causes of electrical outages, and some of its points were somewhat convoluted. The authors of the whitepaper quoted a prominent government regulatory agency who said, “Trees were generally accepted as the single largest cause of electric power outages.” Whoa, really!

This was a statement to catch attention and it worked. Most people would continue memorizing it while thinking, what about storms, wildfires, etc? Those events are usually the top causes when it comes to power outages. And further memorizing supported that, but the trees were an effective hook. The whitepaper’s statistics revealed it was not a simple issue. It reported that the major cause of outages varied between storms, vegetation, wildfires, and combinations of the three.

Having gotten the reader’s attention, the whitepaper shifted to vegetation management as a controllable element for limiting power outages. It also reviewed how today’s utilities were going about vegetation management. They still rely heavily on visual inspections usually performed by a combination of aerial surveys and ground crews to verify what was seen from the air. The takeaway from the paper was utilities and regulators understood the weakness of this method, but were uncomfortable with the advanced technologies behind today’s vegetation management systems.

Errant Vegetation

Intelligent vegetation management methods are proven to be an enormously important tool, but only a few large utilities are taking advantage of this technology on their networks. For those unfamiliar with the term, vegetation management is the control and elimination of unwanted vegetation. And that brings up another important statistical point.

North American utilities are spending between US$6-8 billion annually on maintenance to reduce errant vegetation intrusions on the transmission and distribution networks. Statistically vegetation management is typically the largest segment of a utility’s annual maintenance and operations (O&M) budget. And yet vegetation remains at the top of the list for causes of electricity outages, so what is happening!

It's not complicated, but it seems that way. Keeping it simple, traditional vegetation management practices are heavily reliant on labor intensive processes. Unfortunately, they are only able to cover a fraction of their rights-of-ways (ROW) each year. There are too many miles of transmission and distribution lines needing attention each year for these old-school techniques. After several major blackouts took place, regulators stepped up with mandatory standards and practices, which moved utilities toward more use of technologies to meet their requirements.

Digital Boots

Summarizing, ROWs, and hardware have to be surveyed yearly, along with the removal of intrusive vegetation. The boots on the ground approach can’t keep up with these demands. This is why some remarkable technologies have become the tools of choice. Helicopters, and fixed-wing aircraft quickly provided a method of aerial surveying with arrays of sensors and cameras, but drones are safer and more cost effective.

LiDAR (light detection and ranging) has been brought in to speed up surveying and quickly became the technology of choice. There are other tools like satellites providing twenty-four hour imaging coverage, with a view plane that can zoom from macro to micro. Photogrammetry is also popular especially as asset condition and health were added to the list of characteristics needing to be monitored.

These geospatial and remote-sensing systems provide the vegetation manager, engineer, field-crew, etc. the ability to view more terrain faster and with enhanced detail. As the technologies matured, they added more features, but they weren’t user friendly and increased complexity of the process. The vegetation management team had so much big-data and huge amounts of visual imagines to shift through, it became unmanageable.

This is where advancements such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, predictive analytics, cloud storage and computing, with sophisticated software come into play. These technological advancements have been a part of advanced asset management platforms for years. They were designed to make sense of the zettabytes of big-data being produced by every corner of today’s interconnected grid. Well, those techniques are also being applied to vegetation management systems in the form of smarter vegetation management systems.

Data Driven Insights

In 2020, GE Digital introduced what they call a “purpose-built Visual Intelligence Platform for utilities.” It supports vegetation management and asset inspection using modern technology to tame the unwieldy big-data coming from the distribution and transmission corridors. Talking with Brian Hoff, VP of Product Management Analytics and Asset Management at GE Digital, revealed some fascinating facts about this technology.

Hoff started the discussion saying, “The Visual Intelligence Platform (VIP) is able to ingest all the kinds of visual inspection data the utility has. VIP processes that data and produces business intelligence that can be acted upon. The data can be from satellites, LiDAR, photographic, ground-based view, field surveys, or any other source. It doesn’t matter, VIP is not limited by the data the utility has. We like to say, VIP is designed to use the right data for the right use case at the right time for the right cost. That is because no one type of data is the best for every application.”

Hoff continued, “Utilities are under a great deal of pressure to reduce outages and Strengthen the resilience of their power networks. They have focused their efforts on the transmission network, but statistics point out most outages happen on the distribution network, which is a great place to apply VIP for real results. A large utility in the southeastern part of the country recently completed scanning 60,000 miles of their distribution circuits and the data is being used by VIP. VIP is the foundation for that utility’s distribution system’s vegetation management program. It will also be utilized for distribution system’s asset inventory and inspection surveys. The platform is expected to analyze asset conditions and develop targeted action plans.”

Hoff explained, “Machine learning automates the estimation of vegetation growth by comparing how pixels move from one LiDAR survey to the next. This gives vegetation management teams an advantage by identifying tree growth for tree maps used in risk-based assessments for trimming plans. This optimizes tree trimming prioritization, trim volume, and other vegetation remediation tasks. The platform also includes an asset management module for distribution and transmission lines with a focus on hardware, maintenance, and ground clearance analysis. With capabilities such as these, VIP can reduce costs and Strengthen reliability and safety.”

Smarter Management

A report from Utility Analytics Institute reveals there is a growing interest in intelligent vegetation management applications from utilities worldwide. Like most newer technologies these products have taken time to establish themselves. As utilities become comfortable with them, however, they realize the benefits these applications offer can’t be ignored. They have discovered intelligent vegetation management platforms will take the sting out of the combination of vegetation and extreme weather events on power lines.

Recently Hitachi Energy announced the launch of the Hitachi Vegetation Manager. The Hitachi Vegetation Manager combines satellite imagery and deep AI visual analysis to automatically detect and manage vegetation near power lines. It assures all work will only be performed where and when it’s necessary. According to Hitachi Energy’s spokesperson, “It’s the first of its kind in spaceborne resource planning solutions for electric utilities. It’s part of the broader visual Hitachi analytics suite, Lumada Inspection Insights, which helps slow-to-evolve utilities adopt AI-powered technology.”

National Grid Partners are partnering with AiDash to deploy AiDash’s Intelligent Vegetation Management system on National Grid’s electric lines. It’s an end-to-end satellite-powered platform that uses AI algorithms to monitor and analyze what is taking place along the electric lines vegetation wise. Satellite data provides actionable information after being processed by AiDash’s software. From there it can be used with predictive analytics to identify future risks due to vegetation.

Last year IBM launched their AI-driven software for their cloud-based Environmental Intelligence Suite. IBM said, the suite contains applications that predict how the environment will impact a company’s assets, employees, and customers. For something like vegetation management, the platform assesses the state of the vegetation across the enterprise’s service territory. With proactive management, it can prioritize tasks, predict risks, and assist with decision making.

These smarter vegetation management systems have been developed to reduce the number of outages identified using data-driven analytics, but utilities need to use these tools to be effective. Traditional vegetation management systems identify the majority of vegetation needing attention, but they often miss what’s known as “trouble trees.” These are the trees located on and off the ROW that “could” contact power lines. AI-powered vegetation management platforms look for trees with that signature and quickly identify them. Utilities using this technology can remove those problem trees while saving money and improving reliability. It gives them a big edge over those utilities stuck in the 20th century.

Killexams : Hitachi and Imperial College London launch joint venture on climate and nature-based solutions
Hitachi and Imperial College London launch joint venture on climate and nature-based solutions

The Centre will also help train the next generation of scientists and engineers in the field

Imperial will work with Hitachi and Hitachi Europe to establish a joint research centre that will deliver research projects, reports and white papers on the challenges facing the net-zero transition.

The ‘Hitachi-Imperial Centre for Decarbonisation and Natural Climate Solutions’ will explore the potential scenarios and pathways of the net-zero transition, with a focus on carbon management, decarbonising energy and transport and enhancing biodiversity through nature-based solutions.

The Centre will also help train the next generation of scientists and engineers in the field. The collaboration will be delivered by senior representatives from both Imperial and Hitachi, including Professor Mary Ryan from Imperial’s Faculty of Engineering, and Dr Kazuyuki Sugimura, CTO of Hitachi Europe.

Professor Ryan said: “There is greater urgency than ever before to tackle global pollution, of which CO2 is one of the biggest sources. This joint research centre will bring together world-leading scientists and innovators in decarbonisation and climate repair to develop new technology and solutions to the climate emergency.

“Imperial and Hitachi will work closely together to make significant advances in developing cleaner energy and this new centre will accelerate our work towards a zero pollution future.”

Professor Ryan also leads Imperial’s Transition to Zero Pollution initiative, which aims to build new partnerships to help deliver a “sustainable zero pollution future”.

As for Hitachi, the company joined the United Nations Race to Zero Campaign in 2020, was a principal partner of COP26.

Hitachi set a carbon-neutrality goal for 2050 that covers the entire value chain, including production, procurement and the use of products and services. It builds on an existing commitment of making all its offices and factories carbon neutral globally by 2030.

Nature-based solutions

There are some key challenges that need to be overcome if nature-based and climate solutions are to roll out at the pace required to help decarbonisation efforts.

Estimates suggest that the current market for offsets will need to grow by at least 15-fold by 2030 and up to 160-fold by 2050, if businesses and nations approach a 1.5C pathway using offsetting to the extent currently planned for. At present, most of the market is accounted for by nature-based projects as the capacity of man-made solutions is smaller. If existing challenges are not addressed, this scaling could bear awful consequences for biodiversity, Indigenous communities and global food security.

Globally, the world is facing an $8.1trn financing gap into nature to help combat the climate crisis and ecological breakdown, according to UN reports that warn that annual investments into nature-based solutions need to increase fourfold by 2050.

The report found that current investment into nature-based solutions sits at $133bn – 0.10% of global GDP – most of which comes from public sources. However, up to $4.1trn is required by 2030, which rises to $8.1trn 2050, a four-fold increase.

Up to $203bn annually is required for forest-based solutions, with peatland and mangrove restoration also highlighted as critical solutions. Marine environment solutions such as seagrass meadows were not covered by the report but will be included in future editions.

The report also estimates that annual investments into these solutions will need to reach $536bn annually by 2050.

Killexams : Hitachi Energy wins order to connect one of the world’s largest offshore wind farms to the UK power grid

Zurich, Switzerland, July 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hitachi Energy, the global technology and market leader in power grids, today announced it has won a major order from Ørsted, the world-leading renewable energy company, to provide two high-voltage direct current (HVDC) systems to transmit green electricity from the Hornsea 3 wind farm, located more than 120 km off the UK east coast.

The wind farm will have the capacity to generate up to 2.85 gigawatts of renewable electricity, enough to power more than three million UK homes. With more than 200 wind turbines installed across almost 700 square kilometers*1, this will be the single largest offshore wind farm in the world. This project is a significant step towards the British Energy Security Strategy ambition of sourcing up to 50 gigawatts of offshore wind capacity by 2030.*2

Hitachi Energy has supported Ørsted with the grid connection of Hornsea 1*3 and Hornsea 2*4, but Hornsea 3 will be the first phase to use HVDC application in the Hornsea cluster.

The overall HVDC system, including the offshore platform, is delivered in partnership with Aibel*5. Hitachi Energy will supply two HVDC Light® converter systems, while Aibel will deliver two HVDC offshore converter platforms. The platform is based on Hitachi Energy’s modular HVDC system including its advanced control and protection system, MACH™. As the HVDC offshore market grows and becomes more complex, Hitachi Energy will continue to develop solutions with its customers and partners to enable a more flexible offshore grid of the future.

“Offshore wind is a critical part of the clean energy transition and our HVDC technology is vital for effective transmission to the mainland power grid,” said Niklas Persson, Managing Director of Hitachi Energy’s Grid Integration business. “To address the rapidly growing offshore market, partnerships and collaboration are key to deliver at the speed and scale required to reach our decarbonization and energy security goals.”

“The Ørsted vision is a world that runs entirely on green energy and the Hornsea projects are a significant step towards this goal in the UK,” said Patrick Harnett, Vice President Programme UK at Ørsted. “Together with Hitachi Energy, we are demonstrating that renewables like offshore wind are a huge part of the world’s sustainability journey. Hornsea 3 will not just provide low cost, clean energy for millions of homes in the UK, it will also deliver thousands of high quality jobs and billions of pounds of investment in the offshore wind supply chain in the UK and beyond.”

Hitachi Energy is supplying four HVDC converter stations, which convert AC power to DC for transmission in the subsea cables, then reconvert it to AC for integration into the onshore grid. Two of the converter stations will be installed on offshore platforms and two at mainland grid connections.

Note to editors:

Hitachi Energy’s HVDC solution combines world-leading expertise in HVDC converter valves, the MACH™ digital control platform*6 converter power transformers and high-voltage switchgear, as well as in-system studies, design and engineering, supply, installation supervision and commissioning.

HVDC Light® is a voltage source converter technology developed by Hitachi Energy. It is the preferred technology for many grid applications, including interconnecting countries, integrating renewables and “power-from-shore” connections to offshore production facilities. HVDC Light’s defining features include uniquely compact converter stations and exceptionally low electrical losses.

Hitachi Energy pioneered commercial HVDC technology almost 70 years ago and has delivered more than half of the world’s HVDC projects.

Killexams : Tata Hitachi strengthens product portfolio, aims at Rs 4,800-5,000 crore topline by FY24

Buoyant by growing mining and infrastructure sectors, construction equipment major Tata Hitachi is strengthening its product portfolio to achieve a topline of Rs 4,800-5,000 crore by the 2023-24 fiscal (FY24), a top company official said on July 26.

The company, which has a major manufacturing plant and R&D centres in West Bengal’s Kharagpur, clocked a revenue of around Rs 4,000 crore in the financial year 2021-22, despite subdued demand due to COVID-induced headwinds.

Now, demand has started picking up for construction equipment. Mining is performing better than the infrastructure segment. Targets for coal mining are very high in the wake of a shortage of the dry fuel in the country.

"The government’s aggressive road construction target of around 25,000 km in two years and about 22 green express highways will boost the heavy construction equipment industry," Tata Hitachi Construction Machinery Company Managing Director Sandeep Singh told.

Killexams : World first as entire city’s transport network is digitally connected with Hitachi’s new Smart Mobility suite
  • New mobile app allows passengers access to every mode of public transport in a city “hands-free”, using Bluetooth sensors to connect buses, trains and even funiculars. The 360Pass app gives users the ability to hire e-vehicles, pay for parking and identify e-mopeds.
  • The cheapest possible fare automatically calculated at the end of each day based on the passenger’s real usage – and without needing to purchase a ticket.
  • For transport authorities, the new suite of smart mobility software empowers operators with a “digital twin” of the entire transportation network, giving real-time visibility of passenger & multi-modal transport flows around any city.
  • Launching today, Hitachi’s Lumada Intelligent Mobility Management suite, includes powerful tech for passengers and transport operators alike – connecting smart ticketing, traffic flow management and e-charging through a common analytics platform.
  • Solution could help cities such as New York or Washington drive up public transport, cut C02 emissions and slash congestion hours for drivers (currently 102 and 44 hours respectively1).

WASHINGTON, July 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In a move that is set to trigger a revolution in how people around the world will travel in towns and cities, Hitachi Rail has digitally connected public and private hire transport across an entire city. The milestone has been achieved using technology from Hitachi’s new smart mobility suite called Lumada Intelligent Mobility Management, launched today.

The technology can be used in towns and cities across the world. In the launch programme – in Genoa, Italy – Hitachi has connected 663 buses, 2500 bus stops, the metro line used by 15 million p.a., two funiculars, one historic hillside railway, 10 public lifts and two suburban bus routes that span 50km. Users also have the power – via the touch of a button on their mobile phones – to hire an electric car, pay for parking or find an e-moped.

Power to the passenger

As part of the world-first trial, Hitachi’s 360Pass smart ticketing app has eradicated the need to purchase a traditional paper ticket ever again; or to ‘touch-in’ or obtain multiple apps for different transport services.

The 360Pass connects Bluetooth sensors that know when a passenger with the mobile app has boarded, how far they have travelled and when they disembarked. Users can take multi-modal journeys, but the 360Pass system will ensure they only pay the best possible fare at the end of each day.

The 360Pass app offers more personalised information about public transport journeys, including the fastest and most convenient multi-modal route options and real time journey updates.

It also allows passengers to check how busy bus services are through the app, enabling them to choose less crowded services. This feature can help allay the increased anxiety about crowding post-Covid19, which a recent independent study found to be the second biggest determinant passenger satisfaction.2

360Pass is being delivered in partnership with the city’s public transport operator, AMT, and the Municipality of Genoa, using the local brand name GoGoGe. The technology is part of the municipality’s drive to boost the usage of both public and private e-hire services. The innovative project aims to provide more easily identifiable solutions to the ‘last mile’ problem faced by passengers and public transport authorities around the world.

Game-changer for transport authorities and operators

Genoa, home to two-thirds of a million people, faces similar transport challenges to cities around the world – congestion, emissions and delivering quality services. The ambition on behalf of the city’s leadership is to unlock a step change in the use of sustainable mass transport across the metropolitan area.

Technology offers a way to reduce the reliance on private vehicles – helping the municipality to meet its goals for congestion relief and reducing emissions – while optimising costs and the provision of transportation across the region. In cities such as New York, where drivers can spend an average of 102 hours a year in congestion, this could be transformative.

In addition to the 360Pass mobile app for passengers, the Lumada Intelligent Mobility Management suite gives operators the ability to connect, scale and optimise their city’s entire transportation network in real time.

The over 7,000 Bluetooth sensors installed in Genoa allow the creation of a “digital twin” of the region’s transport and passengers’ end-to-end multimodal journeys. This real-time electronic map of how the city is moving is a powerful tool to allow operators to optimise services, timetables and create a system that better accommodates the changing peaks and troughs in passenger demand. It can identify the issues that deter public transport usage, such as congestion, emissions, crowding or gaps in services.

In addition to smart ticketing, the suite can combine solutions to help operators control traffic flow and service patterns in real time, allow operators to react more effectively to disruption or large scale events (concerts or sporting) happening across the city. Further, by join up information about the level of emissions and congestion in different geographical area, it allows operators to make smart decision about where to target electrification of services first and prioritise locations for charging for e-bus and e-car fleets and infrastructure.

Alessandro de Grazia, Group Head of Smart Ticketing, Hitachi Rail, said: “Hitachi’s Lumada Intelligent Mobility Management suite is a world first for smart mobility and can Strengthen urban transport in cities around the world. For the first time, passengers can plan and access the most convenient multi-modal journey for the cheapest fare, without ever removing their phone from their pockets.

“Today, cities face the challenges of growing public transport use to reduce emissions, cut congestion and boost their recoveries. Our new solutions – proven in Genoa – provide a uniquely powerful platform for operators. Across the US, from Washington to Phoenix, and New York to Austin – we can help operations connect, scale and optimise their entire transportation network through a single platform.”

As a global leader in transport and technology, Hitachi’s vision for smart mobility is to digitise and optimise every part of the journey across different types of public transport. The new suite embodies Hitachi Rail’s holistic vision for smarter mobility, incorporating solutions across three key areas: smart ticketing, mobility management and electrified mobility solutions. While the firm is known for delivering trains and rail infrastructure around the world, including the iconic shinkansen bullet trains, the digitisation of transport systems is an important and growing area of focus.

Marco Beltrami, President, AMT [Genoa’s public transport operator] said: “GoGoGe, the name we chose in Genoa for Hitachi’s 360Pass app, offers a unique travel experience to our customers with the game-changing hands-free technology. We can follow our customers throughout their journey, across all transport systems, getting a clear picture of their end-to-end journey.

“Deploying Hitachi’s technology is a great opportunity for both AMT and the city of Genoa to be a leader in smart mobility and test innovative technologies that will make a big difference to travel in cities around the world.”

About 360Pass: “hands-free” Smart Ticketing technology

Part of Lumada Intelligent Mobility Management’s smart ticketing offering, Hitachi Rail is also launching the new 360Pass mobile application for passengers, available on iOS and Android smart phones. The app, launched now available in Genoa, will be rolled out on a city-by-city basis in partnership with local transportation authorities and operators.

The connected Bluetooth sensor are easy to install and powered by batteries that last for around five years. The installation and set-up light infrastructure in Genoa took less than six months to be fully-operationally ready. Having proved successful with city’s complex mix of public transport modes and challenging geography (dense, hilly and built around successive bays and valleys), Hitachi Rail is confident the technology could be applied to any city around the world.

In addition to conventional mobile ticketing capabilities, such as e-ticketing and QR codes, 360Pass is offers innovative hands-free “BeIn BeOut” technology that provides ticketless transportation across multiple modes of transport.

The technology uses a network of sensor nodes, installed at strategic points across a transport network, including on trains, buses, parking lots at stops and stations, which connect with the user’s 360Pass app via Bluetooth.

Once a passenger begins a journey, the app connects with each sensor it passes on the route, recording the full multi-modal journey; for example, different sensors will register a passenger moving between a bus and a metro service. The app then uses the recorded data to calculate the best-priced fare for the passenger at the end of the day, and sends a receipt for the final fare at 3am the next day.

The app also provides more personalised information to the passenger, based on the context of their journey – predicting crowding at future stops, and alerting passengers as they approach their destination.

Aside from providing a seamless experience for the passenger, the technology can deliver significant benefits for operators, including enhanced data on passengers’ full multi-modal journeys, supporting the optimisation of timetables. The technology also has the potential remove large queues and bottlenecks around ticket barriers by using the technology at the entrance to platforms or vehicles.

Hitachi Rail’s new launch programmes, and decades of experience conventional ticketing, are proving the viability of technology that connects multiple modes of transport across an entire city or region.
