(DB) and Siemens Mobility are driving forward the climate-friendly transition
in transport and are testing the use of hydrogen for rail for the first time.
The aim is to test a completely new overall system consisting of a newly
developed train and a newly designed filling station.
Under the motto
digitalization for a sustainable tomorrow", Siemens will be presenting
solutions at AMB Stuttgart on how to accelerate digitalization in the machine
tool industry, optimize the sustainability of CNC manufacturing and improve the
user experience. Thanks to the continuous analysis of manufacturing data, there
is enormous optimization potential for machine tools.

Siemens Mobility to install a 2,000 km state-of-the-art high-speed rail network that will connect 60 cities throughout the country with trains that can operate up to 230 km/h. The integrated system will create the 6ᵗʰ largest high-speed rail network in the world, and will provide 90% of Egyptians access to a modern, safe, and affordable transportation system. The fully electrified network will cut carbon emissions by 70% compared to current car or bus transport, further supporting Egypt’s efforts in transforming its mobility to a more sustainable one. Siemens Mobility will deliver 41 Velaro high-speed trains, 94 Desiro High Capacity regional train sets, and 41 Vectron freight locomotives. This contract also includes the development of eight depots and yards and 15 years of maintenance.
Siemens Mobility's Vectron locomotives are used for both freight and passenger service. During the development of the locomotive, the focus was on providing a future-proof design, investment security, environmental compatibility, fungibility, retrofitting capability and convertibility. The Vectron can be delivered as a purely electrical version for operating with alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC) power systems as well as a multisystem (MS) variant in the power classes 5.2 MW, 5.6 MW and 6.4 MW. Along with the desired national train control system, the locomotives can also be equipped with the latest European Train Control System (ETCS). The locomotives are built in the Siemens Mobility plant in Munich-Allach, Germany. For freight transport in Germany, Siemens Mobility also offers the Smartron standard locomotive and the Vectron Dual Mode, a combination of diesel and electric locomotive.

Under the motto "Intelligent intralogistics - experience the flow", Siemens will present at this year's Logimat in Hall 3, Stand D11, how a holistic digital twin is developed with the Digital Enterprise Portfolio. Simulation using a digital twin makes it possible to design applications and processes in intralogistics in a highly efficient, flexible and intelligent way. Siemens supports machine builders and operators of logistics centers on the path to digital transformation. The Digital Enterprise Portfolio offers an integrated product portfolio of software-based systems and automation technologies at the center of which is the digital twin.You can experience Siemens solutions and experts in person at the Logimat trade show booth in Stuttgart. Or you can visit the Siemens Intralogistics Forum online on May 17 from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm (CEST) with virtual showroom, auditorium and meet the expert sessions.
Siemens Mobility has signed a follow up order to deliver 43 Velaro MS
highspeed trains (ICE 3neo) for Deutsche Bahn. Together with a previous order
from 2020, this will grow their ICE 3neo fleet to a total of 73 trains. The
first trains will already start passenger service at the end of 2022.
Deutsche Bahn (DB) and Siemens Mobility have
developed the world’s first train that operates by itself in rail traffic. Dr.
Richard Lutz, CEO of DB, and Dr. Roland Busch, CEO of Siemens AG, together with
Dr. Peter Tschentscher, Mayor of Hamburg, presented the train on the 11th
October 2021 as it made its premiere run as part of the Digital S-Bahn Hamburg
October 2019, Siemens Mobility and ViP (Verkehrsbetrieb Potsdam GmbH) have been
jointly researching a fully automated tram depot. One year before, the
cooperation partners presented a test vehicle of an autonomous tram at
InnoTrans 2018. On this basis, the consortium started further research together
with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the Institute for Climate
Protection, Energy and Mobility (IKEM) and Codewerk GmbH. The market readiness
of the autonomous tram in the depot is planned for 2026.
The three-year project called “AStriD” (Autonomous Tram in Depot) is funded by the Federal Ministry for Transportation and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) as part of its “Modernity Fund” (mFUND) research initiative.
