Munich City Utilities (SWM) have placed an order with Siemens Mobility for 21 new C2 type underground trains worth approximately €185 million.
At the same time, SWM have taken out two options on a further 46 underground trains, totalling 276 cars, which can be exercised until 2016 and 2020, respectively. The total volume of the order, including these options, is around €550 million.
Hans-Joerg Grundmann, CEO of the Siemens Mobility Division, said, “We’re proud to be able to continue our longstanding customer relationship with SWM and its subsidiary, Munich Public Transportation Company (MVG). This order represents a milestone project for us in our home market. During the development of the Munich vehicle, we placed particular importance on environmentally clean, low CO2 technology.”
