The award represents the second consecutive time the company has won the contract.

The three-year contract will see Liebherr provide on-demand repairs and associated spare parts to optimise the availability and performance of the HVAC systems, especially during the summer season.

Liebherr-Transportation Systems noted that this contract supports the company's ability to provide customers all the services they require according to their specific needs.

The contract also increases the possibility for T2C and Liebherr to work closely on dedicated improvement packages.

Additionally, Liebherr has announced it has been selected by Keolis Lyon to provide corrective and preventive maintenance of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.

"The three-year contract will see Liebherr provide on-demand repairs and associated spare parts to optimise the availability and performance of the HVAC systems."

The two-year contract will see the company conduct mandatory yearly refrigerant leak-detection surveys, in addition to offering repairs and associated spare parts for the Citadis trams on demand.

Liebherr-Transportation Systems French Site head Eléonor Borrallo-Gautier said: “We are very proud of the confidence shown by Keolis Lyon, which is one of the largest public transportation operators in France, and we will dedicate the full extent of our wide expertise to ensure a high availability of the HVAC systems.”

The contract includes an option to extend for an additional two years.
