ALSTOM SELECTS MASATS TO SUPPLY DOORS FOR APTIS
Alstom has chosen Spanish Masats as the door supplier for its 100% electric Aptis. Masats developed a version for this vehicle with an electric outward opening and another version with 028C sliding doors to adjust vehicles to the specific requirements and characteristics of each city.
The first deliveries have already been made in the city of Strasbourg to the operator CTS Strasbourg on a total order that includes 12 three-door vehicles equipped with the 028C sliding door. Masats states these electric low-energy doors offer high-level control of movement with fast opening speed reducing the time between stops. Obstacle detection systems are installed. Alstom has also ordered doors from Masats for the Aptis ordered for Grenoble, Toulon and La Rochelle.
