ITSA is awarded new projects by Siemens Mobility GmbH
We are thrilled to publish that train manufacturer Siemens Mobility GmbH has awarded ITSA with the exciting challenge to manufacture the sidewall paneling of DB Regio Bayern Desiro HC FST and DISA projects.
Twenty-six Desiro HC trains are currently being built for the Franconia-South Thuringia network, along with 25 Desiro HC double-decker trains for the Danube-Isar network.
The 18 Desiro HC trains will operate in the Franconia-South Thuringia network as four-car units beginning in December 2023 and eight Desiro HC trains as six-car units in June 2024. They travel almost as fast as the ICE, for example between Coburg and Erfurt at 190 kmh.
In the Danube-Isar network, the new trains will inaugurate service in December 2024.
A first train set for FST network was unveiled with great success to the public during the 2022 Innotrans Exhibition.
Congrats to the good cooperation with all the project’s teams and thanks to Siemens for this great opportunity!
