Siemens Rail Systems has received an order from the Qatar Foundation for the turnkey construction of a tram system in the capital Doha.  The order is worth more than EUR 100 Million.

The contract stipulates the development of a 11.5-km long line, as well as the supply of signalling and communications systems and power supply. Lines will be served by 19 double-articulated trams each with an overall length of 27.7 m.  The trams will be equipped with the Sitras HES energy storage system from Siemens.
