Consat Launches Innovation Company

Within the Consat-Group we have, as known,a passion for technology. As a result of this we can’t hold our selves from taking things a few steps further. Occasionally we go so far as starting new product- or specialist subsidiaries. One example is our Consat Telematics that we now proudly can say is a world leading company within ITS for public transport. Another is Consat SES that has brought a whole new way of working with energy into the branch of property management.

“We have realized that we are quite good at the actual process of innovation so we thought; why not take this process a few steps further” says Martin Wahlgren CEO of Consat AB.

Emil Brandt, who will be the head of this new enterprise, comes from a leading position at Consat Engineering and has a long track record of helping Consat customers from idea to commercial viability.

“That sounds complicated; talk to Consat” is a quote that quite well illustrates our position in the market. We have a history of operating in the core of our customers business which says something of how we handle trust. With this said, It feels like a very natural step to give our ability to find new products, methods or new ways to cooperate; it’s own commercial space – says an enthusiastic Emil Brandt.

 

Consat Telematics Wins a Prestigious Business Opportunity in Sydney

This past summer, Transport for New South Wales awarded Consat Telematics AB with the contract for an ITS solution, including a SIRI Broker, which will link together all public transport operators throughout the state of New South Wales, including the city of Sydney. Operators for busses, trains, ferries, subways and tramways will all be connected so they can exchange their real-time information, to the benefit of all public transport passengers!

The project began week.39 – 2018 and will take several years to gradually connect all the operators.

“Putting ourselves out there and being chosen by a world city like Sydney for such a central delivery definitely puts us on the map as one of the ITS leaders. This project gives us a unique opportunity to also assist the involved operators with a complete ITS solution.

I am greatly impressed by the teamwork that went into our success in Australia. More doors are now opening to us in Australia as a result from last year’s successful B-Line project in Sydney and the award of this project in the whole state of New South Wales”

Says a happy and proud Thomas Ottosson, CEO of Consat Telematics AB.
