Stadler wins contract from Stadtwerke Augsburg for eleven trams

Swiss rail manufacturer Stadler has secured a contract from Stadtwerke Augsburg for the delivery of eleven TRAMLINK trams.

Swiss rail manufacturer Stadler has secured a contract from Stadtwerke Augsburg for the delivery of eleven TRAMLINK trams.

The trams are 42m-long and can accommodate up to 86 seated passengers with a total passenger capacity of 231.

The seven-part unidirectional trams will be low-floor-accessible and barrier-free.

The €57m ($62m) contract also includes vehicle maintenance for a period of 16 years.

This is Stadler’s first maintenance contract in the light rail segment in Germany. The contract also includes an option for additional 16 trams.

Stadler Group light rail transit (LRV) and metro sales manager Christoph Klaes said: “We are very pleased to supply the trams to the Bavarian metropolitan region with the order of Stadtwerke Augsburg.

“By this, the TRAMLINK will be in operation for the first time in the Free State of Bavaria from 2022 onwards.”

The move is a part of Stadtwerke’s plan to modernise and expand its tram network in Augsburger.

Once delivered, the new trams will contribute towards the expansion of Line 3.

According to the contract, Stadtwerke Augsburg employees will perform the maintenance works on behalf of Stadler in the company’s in-house workshops.

Stadtwerke Augsburg managing director Dr Walter Casazza said: “We are sure that the TRAMLINK is the ideal vehicle for our needs. With Stadler, we have gained an experienced and proven partner.

“In the Europe-wide invitation to tender, Stadler submitted the offer that best met our previously formulated performance criteria for technology, equipment and cost-effectiveness.”
