BERLIN, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/28/13 -- Rail technology
leader Bombardier Transportation has won an order from the S-Bahn
GmbH, a subsidiary of DB Regio AG, to deliver 60 new single and
dual-voltage commuter trains. The Hamburg Parliament has confirmed
that from December 2018, the S-Bahn Hamburg GmbH will serve as the
operator of the S-Bahn network in Hamburg for another 15 years. In a
European tender procedure, the S-Bahn Hamburg GmbH awarded Bombardier
the contract to supply the vehicles. The order value amounts to
approximately 327 million euro ($427 million US). The contract
provides the option to order up to 86 further trains until the end of
This order strengthens the market position of Bombardier electric
multiple units in Germany and is the first time that Bombardier has
delivered trains to S-Bahn Hamburg GmbH without a partner. Bombardier
is committed to providing innovative and sustainable transportation
solutions that improve urban flow and help cities across the world to
breathe again. Today's passengers expect convenient and flexible
travel options that offer sustainability, easy access, comfort and
reliability. Modern trains produced by Bombardier, including the new
S-Bahn trains, combine comfort, speed and environmental performance
and will encourage more people to switch from road to rail. 
The three-car electric multiple units are characterized by their
striking and dynamic exterior design. Each car has three double
swivel-sliding doors per side, generous entry areas and wide aisles
which allow rapid passenger flow. The transparent and passenger
friendly interior is designed with convenient seating and fixed
stopping for standing passengers. A multi-purpose area features two
places for wheelchair users, prams, bikes or large pieces of luggage
at each end of the train. Information on connecting trains or
changing operating schedules are displayed in real-time via a
comprehensive passenger information system. 
Valuable experience from the previous series has been incorporated in
the development of the new S-Bahn trains. The result is a train with
innovative technology combined with low energy consumption as well as
low maintenance and servicing costs. The carbody's optimized design
means that the trains do not require sliding steps for gap bridging.
For the first time the trains for Hamburg will be equipped with a
compact air conditioning system. The heating system operates with an
energy saving heat pump which uses waste heat from the traction
equipment system to heat the passenger compartments. 
The single-voltage trains with a maximum speed of 100 km/h are used
on the urban S-Bahn network with 1200 V DC. The dual-voltage trains
operate at a maximum speed of up to 140 km/h on route extensions to
the suburban regions at an alternating current of 15kV 16,7Hz . This
allows the creation of direct routes to the city of Hamburg, without
the need to change trains. The first eight vehicles will be handed
over to the S-Bahn Hamburg GmbH by the end of 2016 for a 40-week
testing period. Upon successful completion they will be finally
transferred and the delivery of the remaining 52 trains can commence.
The last train will be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2018. 
Design, engineering and final assembly of the trains will take place
at the Bombardier plant in Hennigsdorf, Germany. The bogies are
manufactured at the Bombardier site in Siegen, Germany.
