Avenio tram for a desert country withstands extreme heat

Extreme heat and high humidity are typical of the climate in the Emirate of Qatar. And the Avenio tram scheduled to enter service in the capital of Doha in 2016 will have to function flawlessly under these conditions. To ensure it's ready for these extremes, the tram undergoes comprehensive tests in temperatures ranging from zero to more than 40 degrees Celsius in the Climatic Wind Tunnel testing facility of Rail Tec Arsenal (RTA) in Vienna, Austria.
