- An Avenio vehicle equipped with SiC technology spent one year transporting passengers in Munich and covered 65,000 kilometers in the process
- Energy use was cut by 10 percent and motor noise was reduced as well
- Joint research project conducted as part of the European development and research program PINTA
Siemens Mobility and Stadtwerke München (SWM) successfully completed a one-year test of semiconductor technology based on silicon carbide (SiC) in an Avenio streetcar in Munich in August. They have now presented the results of their research. The study found that the motor noise produced by the vehicle fell sharply and that energy use declined as well during the trips that the tram made on Munich’s public-transportation rail network. The semiconductor technology was produced by Infineon Technologies. The tests were conducted as part of the European research and development project PINTA. By taking part in the trial, Siemens Mobility significantly contributed to efforts to integrate SiC power semiconductors into rail vehicles.

State-of-the-art train interiors
DB Regio Bayern and train manufacturer Siemens
Mobility will put a total of 57 new trains in service in Bavaria beginning in
December 2023. Twenty-six Desiro HC trains are currently being built for the
Franconia-South Thuringia network, along with 25 Desiro HC double-decker trains
and six Mireo trains for the Danube-Isar network. The 18 Desiro HC trains will
operate in the Franconia-South Thuringia network as four-car units beginning in
December 2023 and eight Desiro HC trains as six-car units in June 2024. They
travel almost as fast as the ICE, for example between Coburg and Erfurt at 190
kmh. In the Danube-Isar network, the 31 new trains will inaugurate service in
contract conditions are met: Niederbarnimer Eisenbahn (NEB) orders 31 battery-operated
trains from Siemens Mobility
