Hannover orders more TW 3000s as first one delivered

18 Nov 2013

GERMANY: Hannover transport operator Üstra exercised an option to buy 50 light rail vehicles from Vossloh Kiepe on November 15.

The follow-up order is worth €90m and coincides with the delivery of the first TW 3000 high-floor LRV ordered from a Vossloh Kiepe-Alstom consortium in 2011 under a €126m contract for 50 with an option for 96 more.

The first of the new fleet is expected to enter passenger service in March. The two-section bidirectional air-conditioned LRVs are 25 m long.
