- Consortium of Siemens Mobility and Stadler win €114.5 million contract for Lisbon Metro
- Siemens Mobility to install CBTC across three lines
- Stadler to supply a new fleet of modern trains
The consortium of Siemens Mobility and Stadler have won a €114.5 million contract to provide the Lisbon Metro with a state of the art signaling system and a new fleet of modern trains. Stadler will supply 14 three-car metro trains, while Siemens Mobility will install its Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) system Trainguard MT on the Blue, Yellow and Green lines, and will upgrade the existing equipment. This will include installing its on-board CBTC technology across 70 trains of the existing fleet, as well as on the 14 new Stadler trains.
We released our second quarter results for fiscal 2021 on May 7, 2021. The conference call for journalists and the analyst was broadcasted live.

With an excellent second quarter, Siemens AG followed on seamlessly from its successful start to the fiscal year. Despite a persistently challenging macroeconomic environment, influenced among other things by the COVID-19 pandemic, and negative currency translation effects, development across all company business areas continued to be positive. In line with these results, Siemens is again raising its guidance for fiscal 2021 and now expects companywide revenue growth of 9 percent to 11 percent on a comparable basis (previous forecast: mid- to high-single-digit growth) and net income of between €5.7 billion and €6.2 billion (previous forecast: €5.0 billion to €5.5 billion).
- CBTC signaling system to be implemented across five-kilometer
extension of Salvador Metro in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil
automated signaling system will provide greater availability, enhanced
operations, and better passenger experience
Siemens Mobility has been awarded a contract by Companhia de
Transportes do Estado da Bahia to install a Communications-Based Train Control system (CBTC), GoA2, on
the extension of Line 1 in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. The CBTC
signaling system will be fully implemented across the approximately
five-kilometer extension that will connect Pirajá to Águas Claras/Cajazeiras,
including two new stations. The full
integration of the extension to the existing Line 1 will provide
for greater availability, enhanced operations, and a better passenger
experience. This contract builds on the already
well-established relationship Siemens Mobility has with the Salvador Metro and
CCR Metrô Bahia.
Transport Association (BVG) and Siemens Mobility have signed a contract for the
construction of a Sicas ECC electronic interlocking at Alexanderplatz subway
station. The new interlocking is to cover the approximately 3.5-kilometer route
between the Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz and Spittelmarkt subway stations. In addition
to the indoor system, the scope of order includes new cables, a cable system
and around 150 K140 signals (main, pre, emergency and protection signals). The
line, which comprises a total of five stations, runs underground on two tracks
in a tunnel with a small clearance gauge. The project, which has a total volume
of around €13 million, will start laying cables in November 2021 and will be
completed in summer 2024.

- Certification up to SIL 3 / PL e for high personal and system safety
- Force-guided operation allows for use in railroad, signaling and elevator applications
- Simple assembly reduces time required for building control panels
The Sirius 3RQ1 series completes Siemens Smart Infrastructure’s portfolio of coupling relays for electrical systems in industry and infrastructure. With wide-range supply voltage from 24 to 240V AC/DC, the new force-guided devices are designed for universal use. They are certified up to Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3 and Performance Level (PL) e and approved for very high safety requirements. Among other things, coupling relays are used to amplify or multiply signals to and from controllers. The Sirius 3RQ1 coupling relays can also switch electrical loads directly. Thanks to their force-guided operation in accordance with IEC 60947-5-1 (IEC 61810-3), the devices offer maximum safety for people and systems. They are particularly well suited for use in railroad and signaling applications as well as in elevators and industrial production facilities, making it possible to safely control brakes and doors, for example, and to switch traffic lights, conveyor belts or packaging machines.
