GTO to IGBT
Strukton Rail offers GTO to IGBT converter upgrades. We engineer modern IGBT-based compatible traction systems to replace GTO systems (i.e. due to ill performing equipment, obsolete spare parts, as part of complete overhauls etc). Our modular design is adaptable to the customer needs and the available space within the unit.
