Siemens Mobility wins German Mobility Award 2020

“With the RRX project, we have succeeded in implementing a digitally networked, high-performance mobility solution for the roughly ten million people living in the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region,” said Gerhard Greiter, CEO of Region Northeast Europe at Siemens Mobility. “Everything in this project is digitally networked: trains, service centers, logistics centers and employees. The improved punctuality of the trains and their almost 100-percent availability underscore the success of the project.” 
The Rhine-Ruhr Express project is unique due to its sheer dimensions and scale of innovation. Both, the trains and maintenance are provided by the same source. Siemens Mobility is supplying a total of 84 state-of-the-art Desiro HC regional trains and will be responsible for their maintenance and repairs until 2050. The last train in the order will be delivered this year. The RRX is a true regional project: Production, tests and maintenance are all carried out at Siemens locations in the state of North-Rhine Westphalia.
