Mulheim places order for more Bombardier trams

Mulheim places order for more Bombardier trams :Mulheim transport authority MVG has placed an order with Bombardier for 10 new Flexity trams worth €27 million.

The new batch of three-car, bi-directional trams will complement five vehicles already being built by Bombardier for MVG after it exercised an option on an order for 27 trams placed by the Essen transport authority (EVAG), which alongside MVG and the Duisburg transport authority (DVG) make up the Via Transport Company.

Klaus-Peter Wandelenus, managing director of MVG, said: “With this tram we have achieved a high level of standardization which will result in short servicing and maintenance periods.

“The tram’s operating efficiency over the entire lifecycle is of utmost importance. There is no room for isolated solutions and technical experiments. The new low-floor trams symbolize how we will act in Via in future.”

The trams will be built at Bombardier’s Bautzen facility, however, the electrical equipment will be manufactured in Mannheim and the bogies in Siegen.

The first vehicles are scheduled to be delivered in August 2015.
