ABB announces train equipment orders of USD 90 million

07-stadlerABB has won orders worth around USD 90 million from Swiss train manufacturer Stadler Rail to enable sustainable high-speed, suburban and urban transit in Europe and in the United States.
ABB’s traction converters with integrated power supplies, traction transformers and battery chargers will go on Stadler’s new international EuroCity trains being made for the Swiss Federal Railways to speed passenger service starting in 2017 between cities including Frankfurt, Zurich and Milan.
ABB is also supplying compact traction converters with integrated power supplies for four new diesel-electric railcars for Capital Metro in Austin, Texas. ABB’s compact traction converters and transformers will also power 15 Stadler electric trains slated for Hungarian National Railways’ suburban fleet.
“These continuing orders affirm the strength of our long-standing relationship with Stadler Rail that’s built on deep industry expertise and a mutual passion for innovation,” said Pekka Tiitinen, president of ABB’s Discrete Automation and Motion division.
