Mainline electric multiple unit (MEMU) Market: Introduction

  • Mainline electric multiple unit is run by electric power that covers short and medium distances. These MEMUs run across cities as well as suburban areas.
  • Electrical multiple units are used to transport large number of passengers to and from metropolitan areas. MEMU consists of motor coach and trailer coaches, the motor coach is the driving coach and the trailer coach consist of traction motor and traction electrics. The units such as motor coach and multiple trailer coach form a set of Train.
  • MEMU contains similar configuration coaches, which is 10 feet wide in dimension, So that platform constraint is eliminated. Demand for such trains is considerably high across the globe. According to the traffic and population most of the transport authorities and governments are investing in MEMU.

Key drivers of global mainline electric multiple unit (MEMU) market

  • The Electric multiple unit is used for short distance in sub urban areas (up to 150kms) which is having frequent stops and starts. While mainline electric multiple unit is used for medium distance (300 to 500 km). Each MEMU train consists of one driving coach at each end. One basic unit of MEMU consist of one motor coach and one trailer coach. MEMU trains normally comprise 16 to 20 trailers.
  •  The Mainline electrical multiple unit draws an alternating current from over-head electric lines through catenary wire. The rake is made up of steel body with light sliding doors and interior panels are made up of polymer. The trailers are fitted with surveillance cameras, LED lights, and LED indication for chain-pulling, and GPS-based passenger information system.
