- 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.
- 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.
- Consortium of Siemens and Škoda Transportation commissioned
- Cars combine efficiency with enhanced passenger experience
- Order volume around half a billion EUR
The national carrier Czech Railways (České dráhy – ČD) continues to modernize its fleet serving long-distance domestic and international lines. The consortium of Siemens Mobility and Škoda Transportation has won the tender for 20 Viaggio Comfort nine-car non-traction units including control cars, designed for a maximum operating speed of 230 km/h. The cars will be delivered from 2024 to 2026 and the order is valued at around half a billion EUR.
As the global population experiences rapid growth, more people around the world are moving from the countryside to the city. In addition to the inner-city challenges posed by the urbanization megatrend, there is also an increase in the average traveling distance. As a result, the challenges for train systems are also increasing. To meet these demands, Siemens Mobility and Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) have jointly developed new auxiliary converters to improve the efficiency of on-board power systems using power semiconductors based on silicon carbide (SiC).
- The two awarded contracts are worth $190M.
- Upgrades will improve the rail capacity, efficiency and enhance passenger experience.
Siemens Mobility has been awarded two contracts worth around AU $190M by the New South Wales (NSW) Government in Australia to significantly upgrade the rail network in metropolitan Sydney, one of the busiest networks in the southern hemisphere. This work will improve the overall efficiency and capacity of the rail network. The total contract consists of two key packages, including the introduction of a new Traffic Management System (TMS) along with the upgrading of the Sydney Trains’ network conventional signalling to a digital ETCS-L2 train control system.
