LPA Lighting Systems significant project award with Siemens Mobility

LPA are pleased to announce a significant project award with Siemens Mobility (subject to contract) for the UK rail market. LPA is supplying the entire interior lighting system for 94 Inspiro trains, totalling 846 cars, for the Piccadilly line.

The LED system will include all ceiling lighting, status lights to indicate when doors are opening and closing, step lights to highlight door thresholds, and the drivers’ cab lighting.

In total, LPA will produce 35,344 separate lights, which would stretch more than 20 kilometres if lined up end to end.

With lighting such a crucial element of passenger experience, Siemens Mobility needed to be able to rely on a trusted supplier and LPA fits the bill perfectly.

LPA has also worked with Transport for London (TfL) for more than 30 years and understands its stringent lighting requirements and technical specifications.

Robin Capel-Dunn, Sales Director at LPA Lighting Systems, said: “Our relationship with Siemens Mobility has gone from strength to strength over the years. There’s a real trust between the two companies.

“We are providing Siemens with a completely bespoke lighting system. Passengers will experience a brighter, cleaner and more relaxed environment through a mixture of direct and indirect lighting.

“This is a fantastically exciting project and we are delighted to be playing our part.”
