Stadler Receives Contract from NSB Gjøvikbanen to Maintain Ten FLIRT Trains for a Period of Three Years
Oct 31 17
Stadler has received a contract from NSB Gjøvikbanen to maintain ten FLIRT trains for a period of three years. The existing 'Lodalen' facility in Oslo will be adapted to facilitate the maintenance of FLIRT Gjøvikbanen's fleet under the deal, which was awarded via a public procurement process. Stadler will begin first line maintenance of the FLIRT trains from January next year and is set to continue providing services until the end of 2020. The deal also includes an option to extend the duration of the contract at a later date. NSB Gjøvikbanen’s parent company Norges Statsbaner (NSB) originally acquired the first 50 FLIRT trains from Stadler in 2008 and intends to expand its fleet to 125 trains by 2020. The new trains have been specially designed to cope with harsh Norwegian winter conditions with temperatures as low as -40°C. Stadler notes that the maintenance package will be modelled after the MTR Express in Sweden, where the company is currently conducting full service maintenance and has delivered an availability of 100% during daily peak times for the last two years. The first line maintenance is expected to include a number of preventive and corrective maintenance procedures. The company is already carrying out full service for bybanen’s light rail fleet in Bergen and possesses several additional service sites such as Stockholm and Tillberga in Sweden, and Aarhus, Denmark, as part of its Service Region Nordic.
Stadler Wins Contract for 16 Double-Decker Trains by Caltrain
Aug 16 16
Stadler has been awarded the contract to design and manufacture 16 six-car KISS double-decker electric multiple-unit trains for Caltrain in the Unites States. The contract, with an option for an additional 96 cars, has a total value of USD 551 million. It is the first time that Stadler sells lightweight double-decker trains to the United States. With this contract Stadler KISS trains will be running in nine different countries. The contract for Caltrain marks the seventh, and by far the biggest success in the United States for Stadler. On August 15, 2016, the contract for 16 double-decker electric multiple-unit trains (EMU) of the KISS type was signed in San Mateo, California, by Jim Hartnett, CEO of the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board (Caltrain) and Peter Spuhler, Owner and Group CEO of Stadler. The contract between Caltrain and Stadler US Inc., includes 16 six-car double-decker EMUs measuring 515 feet and 3 inches (157.1 meters) in length. The contract value amounts to USD 551 million and includes an option for 96 additional cars with a value of USD 385 million. The new trains will connect San Francisco with San Jose in the Silicon Valley. Double-decker EMUs, with their high performance and passenger capacity, will help to provide a better service to the rapidly growing ridership by allowing Caltrain to offer faster and more frequent connections. The replacement of the existing heavy-steel-construction diesel fleet with art lightweight aluminium EMUs will also significantly decrease greenhouse-gas and noise emissions. The trains meet FRA Alternative Compliance requirements for operating in mixed traffic, which results in a high level of passive safety. Specific Stadler-designed trucks have built-in air suspension to allow smooth running with exceptionally low vibration and noise levels. The standard-gauge trains have a maximum operating speed of 110 mph (177 km/h). The six-car trains are extendable to seven-car or eight-car units, providing the same swift performance with significantly increased transport capacity. The first Stadler double-decker train in the United States will be handed over in August 2019 and will go into operation in 2020 after conditional acceptance and type testing.
