In an interview with Rail Professional, Nick Hughes, sales director at Hitachi Rail Europe discussed the success of the IEP and Abellio ScotRail (ASR) contracts. He went on to detail Hitachi’s aspirations for HS2.

DCA worked with Hitachi to develop the passenger interior and driver’s cab interior designs on both the IEP and ASR.  Our work included the production of full size mock ups for both projects.

Hitachi and DCA’s success at winning the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society’s design award for the IEP Class 800/801 train interiors was highlighted in the article as a reason why “Hitachi’s confidence in its trains will be at a high”.
