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.

The products in Siemens Mobility trains meet the
highest cyber security standards. This was recently confirmed by TÜV SÜD, which
approved Siemens Mobility Rolling Stock with the IEC 62443 4-1 certificate.
This award confirms, 18 months after the IEC 62443 2-4 / 3-3 certification, the cyber
security throughout the entire product development process.
Media representatives got a first-hand impression of the new Vienna Metro during a test drive on the 14th April 2021 – in the presence of Public Transport City Councillor Peter Hanke, Wiener-Linien Managing Director Günter Steinbauer and Siemens Mobility CEO Arnulf Wolfram. After the successful approval of operation, the so-called 'X-Wagen' will be in use for all Viennese on the four lines U1 to U4 from 2022. With the completion of the new U5 in 2026, the new vehicles will also be running fully automatically.
Siemens Mobility and DB Systemtechnik have signed a cooperation agreement to modernize a locomotive of the series 101 with an upgraded Siemens ETCS solution Trainguard 200 Onboard Unit system. The locomotive is part of DB Systemtechnik’s fleet and is used for test- and acceptance runs. It will now be upgraded to the European train control system ETCS level 2. At its core, the project aims to develop an interface solution that can be easily implemented for subsequent retrofitting and integration of ETCS and LZB into the vehicle architecture, independent of the train manufacturer. With this technical integration solution, a major step towards the successful retrofitting of entire fleets in the context of the Digital Rail for Germany program is made. Siemens Mobility has demonstrated its retrofit experiences and capabilities already in various retrofit projects throughout Switzerland, Great Britain, Spain and Germany.
In a live broadcast between Berlin and London on Thursday, March 4, 2021, Transport for London and Siemens Mobility unveiled the design of the new London Piccadilly line tube trains. 94 state-of-the-art tube trains will replace the current fleet of the Piccadilly line, which was built in the 1970s. The new generation of trains will offer passengers more spacious, air-conditioned walk-through carriages and improved accessibility. The trains are scheduled to be in service on the Piccadilly line from 2025.
Siemens Mobility is investing twelve million euros in the further modernization of its long-established production site in Vienna-Simmering: Together with Vienna's City Economic Councillor Peter Hanke, the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction project took place on Monday, March 1. The investment will focus on the construction of a new train commissioning hall, the expansion of digitalized production, and the optimization of production workflows. This will further increase the competitiveness of the site and secure local jobs and local value creation. Passenger coaches and metro trains are built at the historic Siemens Mobility plant, for example the new night trains for ÖBB or metro trains for Vienna, Munich, Riyadh or Bangkok. ÖBB's popular Railjets were also manufactured here. At the Vienna plant, Siemens Mobility employs about 1,200 people, manufactures about 450 rail vehicles per year and currently trains a total of 88 apprentices.

To whom it may concern,
First of all, I do want to thank you for the countless
mails, social media engagements and personal meetings over this important matter.
The vast majority has been addressing their concerns clearly and with respect.
For me, this only underscored the importance and the need to diligently look
into the issue at hand. Especially, the messages I’ve received from Australian
people have moved me personally, when they described that their homes and their
country is burning and suffering from these terrible fires.
Even though we do not have clear evidence that the wildfires
and this project are directly connected, I feel empathy for all those, who
spoke up and warned about worsening conditions. Siemens, as one of the first companies
to have pledged carbon neutrality by 2030, fundamentally shares the goal of
making fossil fuels redundant to our economies over time.
