Thameslink route through London: Siemens to deliver trains worth circa 1.8 billion euros

Weltpremiere: Auf der Innotrans pr├Ąsentiert Siemens erstmals drei fertiggestellte Wagen des neuen Desiro City Thameslink. Bereits im Januar 2014 wurde das 1:1-Model der neuen Desiro-Z├╝ge in London vorgestellt. Die neuen elektrischen Triebz├╝ge der Class 700 bieten den Fahrg├Ąsten einen h├Âheren Komfort und gr├Â├čere Flexibilit├Ąt. Kapazit├Ąt und Zuverl├Ąssigkeit auf einem der verkehrsreichsten Streckenabschnitte Europas werden sich verbessern.
Das Department f├╝r Transport in London erteilte im Juni 2013 einen Auftrag zur Lieferung von 1.140 Wagen an Siemens. Siemens wird ab 2016 f├╝r rund 1,6 Mrd. Pfund (rund 1,8 Mrd. Euro) die neu entwickelten Regionalz├╝ge liefern. Zus├Ątzlich ├╝bernimmt Siemens langfristig auch die Instandhaltung der Z├╝ge und baut daf├╝r zwei neue Depots auf. Dies ist der gr├Â├čte Auftrag, den Siemens jemals in Gro├čbritannien gewonnen hat und einer der gr├Â├čten Auftr├Ąge f├╝r die Bahnsparte von Siemens.

World premiere: At this year's Innotrans, Siemens will unveil for the first time three completely assembled cars for the new Desiro City train for the Thameslink project. A mockup of this new Desiro train was already presented to the public in London in January of this year. These new Class 700 electric multiple units offer passengers a higher degree of comfort and the operator much more flexibility. They will improve the capacity and reliability of transport on one of the busiest line sections in Europe.
In June 2013, the Department for Transport in London placed an order with Siemens for the delivery of 1,140 cars. Siemens will start delivering these newly developed regional trains as of 2016 to the tune of approximately 1.6 billion pounds (around 1.8 billion euros). In addition, Siemens will be responsible for the long-term maintenance of the trains and is building two new depots for this purpose. This is the largest order that Siemens has ever won in Great Britain and one of the biggest orders for Siemens' global rolling stock business.
