I treni BOMBARDIER TALENT 2 saranno operativi a breve nella zona di Lipsia
Deutsche Bahn ordina altri 51 treni con configurazione flessibile che opereranno sulla linea ferroviaria "Mitteldeutsche S-Bahn" (rete suburbana della Germania centrale)
BERLINO, GERMANIA--(Marketwire - 19 novembre 2010) - Bombardier Transportation fornirà altri 51 treni BOMBARDIER TALENT 2 a Deutsche Bahn AG (DB AG). Il valore dell'ordine si aggira intorno ai 200 milioni di euro (271 milioni di dollari USA).
36 nuovi treni suburbani TALENT 2 a tre carrozze e 15 treni a quattro carrozze entreranno in servizio all'inizio di dicembre 2013 a Lipsia e nel suo hinterland sulla linea "Mitteldeutsche S-Bahn".
I treni sono dotati di comfort quali l'aria condizionata, una pedana scorrevole a ogni entrata e ampi spazi adatti a più utilizzi, con accesso per sedie a rotelle, carrozzine e biciclette. Seating is generously space d, not just for first class passengers, and therefore meets regional as well as suburban travel needs. For families with children there are specially-designed seating areas. The trains are also equipped with toilets for disabled passengers. The passenger compartments have integrated monitors that display current travel information. Passenger safety is enhanced through video monitoring and implementation of the latest crash requirements.
Paintwork specially designed for the "Mitteldeutsche S-Bahn" network gives these TALENT 2 trains a completely different appearance to others.
The new order brings the total number of TALENT 2 trains ordered by Deutsche Bahn to 287. At the end of August, DB AG ordered twenty-three five-car trains for service on the Warnow network in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, and a total of thirty-seven (34 four-car and three two-car) trains for the Werdenfels railway in Bavaria.
A major feature of the recently developed TALENT 2 Electrical M ultiple Unit platform (the 442 series) is its modular concept which includes a high degree of standardisation. The trains can be configured with almost unlimited flexibility and are both cost effective and cost transparent at the same time. The innovative, modular construction principle allows for countless variants on the same train type. The two- to six-car trains can be equipped with a wide variety of technical modules, depending on whether they are to be used as commuter or regional express trains.
A scalable traction output provided by the BOMBARDIER MITRAC propulsion and control system makes these trains particularly energy efficient and easily adaptable to the frequent acceleration and braking requirements in the commuter sector, as well as to the demands of the regional rail network.
