Record order for Siemens from the USA
Siemens Mobility landed a record order in the USA.
With 3.4 billion US dollars (2.9 billion euros), it is the largest that the group division has ever received in North America, as Siemens announced.
The order from the US transport company Amtrak includes the design, manufacture and technical maintenance of 73 trains. There is also an option to expand the order by up to 140 additional trains. The first train is due to be delivered in 2024. Both hybrid trains with batteries and two-vehicle trains that can run on both diesel and electricity have been ordered. They are built in Sacramento, California.
