Hamburger Hochbahn awarded Alstom-Bombardier consortium a EUR 186 million contract for the supply of 32 additional DT5 metro trains. Alstom’s share of the contract amounts to over EUR 100 million.
Alstom will supply the mechanical part, the bogies and the mechanical braking system, while Bombardier will supply the electrical equipment, the driving system, the passenger information system and the vehicle control system.
The trains will be assembled at Alstom’s site in Salzgitter, Lower Saxony. The new trains are to be put into service from January 2021 onwards.
The DT5 metro fleet has been in operation in Hamburg since autumn 2012.
The Hochbahn has now ordered a total of 163 metro trains of this generation in order to cope with the increasing number of passengers in the city. In the past, Alstom had already delivered to Hamburg the DT2, DT3 and DT4 fleets, with a total of 462 metro trains.
