Transdev subsidiary NordWestBahn GmbH awarded Stadler a EUR 100 million contract for the supply of 16 four-car Flirt EMUs which will enter services on the Bremen/Lower Saxony regional S-Bahn network in December 2022.
“We are delighted to be able to continue our constructive and successful cooperation with Transdev by supplying Flirt trains for the Bremen region for the first time,” Jure Mikolčić, CEO of Stadler in Germany, said.
The 86.9-metres long trains will have 260 seats and a total capacity of 527 passengers. The trains are fully equipped with video-monitoring system in the passenger area, with power outlets for charging e-bikes in addition to wheelchair places according to PRM TSI guidelines. The on-board wireless network and the modern passenger information system, which displays data in real time on monitors in each boarding area, make it easier for passengers to update their journey to the minute. The vehicles can travel at a maximum speed of 160 km/h.
