ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, has received orders worth more than $60 million from Swiss train manufacturer, Stadler Rail, to supply traction and onboard power equipment. The orders were booked in the first quarter.

The new business follows earlier orders from rail operators to expand their fleets of Stadler trains in Germany (Hessische Landesbahn), Hungary (MAV and GYSEV), Italy (Südtiroler Transportstrukturen), Norway (NSB), and Switzerland (Thurbo).

The equipment will be installed in more than 70 light electric trains, the so-called “fast light innovative regional train” type (FLIRT) and Gelenktriebwagen type (GTW), for 15 kilovolt alternating current (kVAC) and 25 kVAC line voltage as well as in six multi-system FLIRT electric trains for cross-border services.

“These orders clearly demonstrate the success and competitiveness of Stadler trains in combination with ABB’s high-grade propulsion systems and reflect a continuous demand for refurbishment and expansion of train fleets in Europe,” said Ulrich Spiesshofer, head of ABB’s Discrete Automation and Motion division. “This confirms our leading position as a reliable long-term partner and the supplier of choice for modern and energy-effcient traction solutions.”

The orders are a continuation of a very successful business cooperation between ABB and Stadler Rail that began in 2002. Since then, Stadler Rail has ordered ABB traction equipment for more than 1,200 FLIRT and GTW train types.

ABB’s scope of supply includes traction converters with integrated onboard power supplies as well as roof-mounted traction transformers. ABB traction equipment convert electricity from overhead power lines to the voltage levels needed by the train motors as well as a host of auxiliary power systems, including lighting, heating, ventilation and automatic doors.

ABB (abb.com) has a long history of providing innovative and energy-efficient technologies to the rail sector, manufacturing and servicing all components and sub-systems used in urban, intercity and high-speed networks, both for rail infrastructure and for rolling stock. With a vast global installed base, ABB also provides life cycle service support, including maintenance and retrofits.
