Around 1.5 million people travel daily on the Berlin light rail network (S-Bahn). Over five million passengers use the MTA New York City Subway to get from A to B. Cleanliness and hygiene on buses, at stations, bus stops and on trains are becoming an increasingly important aspect for users of public transport and rail networks. This is also reflected in the growing size of the cleaning industry segment at InnoTrans 2020.
From 22 to 25 September in Hall 6.2 a variety of leading international companies will be exhibiting their innovative products for optimum cleanliness at InnoTrans. The focus this year is on efficient cleaning systems and those manufactured to customers’ specifications. The displays also include toilet waste disposal systems, washing units as well as cleaning agents, care products and disinfectants.
Companies focus on products to customers’ specifications
Bitimec from Italy is a company which focuses on the specific demands of its customers: "It is about being able to listen and find a solution. Bitimec will have the honour of showing visitors to InnoTrans our highly innovative, custom solutions adapted to individual customers’ needs. Our mobile, diesel or battery-powered SEP1000 train washing unit, our mobile SU500 sand filling system and all our train maintenance products which are installed on our electric vehicles are subject to constant improvement and take the specific demands of our customers into account."
The focus of Otto Christ AG, Wash Systems, an established company from Bavaria, is also on its customers’ individual needs: ”Living the future together! We live and breathe our products and take great pleasure in fulfilling individual customer requests. Why not find out for yourself and visit us at InnoTrans 2020!“
This year Blue & Green from Sweden is presenting an efficient graffiti removal system as well as numerous cleaning products aimed at ensuring passengers can enjoy a pleasant trip. Eco-friendliness is an important aspect too: ”Our products are designed with the environment and business in mind, and with a focus on efficiency and product quality. We have the resources, knowledge and experience to develop and adapt concepts to our customers’ needs. By working closely with our customers we have been able to establish a wide range of uniquely efficient products. At InnoTrans 2020 we are exhibiting our professional surface coating and efficient graffiti removal system and cleaning products.“
The company BHB Waschanlagen is focusing this year on environmentally friendly product variations: "Let's go to InnoTrans 2020, the largest trade fair for rail vehicles, in order to meet our customers and win new customers, present innovative products and demonstrate climate and environmental protection in practice."
Cleanliness – an important mobility sector topic in the future
Last September the second edition of the Mobility Cleaning Circle took place at CMS. The fact that more and more international representatives of the mobility sector are exchanging information with the cleaning industry shows that cleanliness has become an increasingly important aspect in the world of transport. The world’s leading trade fair for transport technology is an expert, future-oriented platform which brings interested parties from all over the globe together with the who’s who of the cleaning industry in the mobility sector. In September 2021, the third edition of the Mobility Cleaning Circle will provide an opportunity to build on the contacts previously established at InnoTrans.
InnoTrans is the world’s leading trade fair for transport technology and takes place every two years in Berlin. At the last event 3,062 exhibitors from 61 countries presented the global rail industry’s innovations to 153,421 trade visitors who came from 149 countries. The five segments at InnoTrans are Railway Technology, Railway Infrastructure, Public Transport, Interiors and Tunnel Construction. InnoTrans is organised by Messe Berlin. The thirteenth edition of InnoTrans will take place on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds from 22 to 25 September 2020. More details are available online at www.innotrans.com.
