"We are currently
experiencing delivery delays in all areas - which makes us all the more pleased
that Siemens is able to deliver the first vehicle not only on time, but even
earlier than announced," says a delighted Ralf Gummersbach, Managing
Director of SWU Verkehr. The remaining five trams will be delivered to Ulm
successively, probably by April 2023.
"We are very
pleased to be able to deliver the Avenio M to Ulm much earlier than planned.
This gives SWU a head start in expanding local transport in Ulm and making it
more climate-friendly. The Avenio M is an innovative vehicle that impresses
with its reliability and a particularly high level of passenger comfort,"
says Julia Fischer, Head of Light Rail & VAL.
