Siemens delivers an additional ten trams for Bremen

"With this supplementary order, BSAG will now be able to replace the entire fleet of old and defective 77 trams with just as many new and modern Avenios. We're especially pleased that we can offer our customers a far better quality of rapid transit service with the new trams from Siemens," said BSAG board spokesman Hajo Müller.
"The Avenio is a modern, comfortable, reliable and barrier-free tram that perfectly fulfills all the demands of the Hanseatic city. Bremen has placed the biggest order to date for our latest generation of trams, and this further order from BSAG confirms the trust in our future-oriented product," says Sabrina Soussan, CEO of the Mobility Division at Siemens.
The first four-section trams ordered last year will begin service in Bremen starting in spring 2019. The approximately 37-meter-long tram carries up to 259 passengers and has a top speed of 70 km/h. Large windows and energy-efficient LED lighting provide pleasant lighting conditions. Multifunctional areas at the entrances offer generous space for wheelchairs, baby strollers and bicycles. An air conditioning system ensures a pleasant, draft-free interior atmosphere throughout the year. On-board wireless Internet and information systems provide additional passenger comfort. The Avenio also reflects the latest advances in sustainability: the tram is up to 90-percent recyclable. The Avenio uses a large part of its recovered braking energy for heating or feeds it back into the power grid. All wheels are equipped with sound absorbers to ensure smooth and low-noise operation.
The Avenio is already in service in Munich, Germany, and Den Haag, the Netherlands. Ulm, Germany, and Doha, Qatar have also ordered Avenio trams from Siemens. The Avenio family is based on a modular design comprised of proven systems and components drawing on over 135 years of company experience: Siemens premiered the world's first electric railway tram in 1881. Siemens' tram business offers customers around the globe reliable, sustainable and cost-efficient mass transit solutions.
