Tramino Jena: Vossloh Kiepe supplies complete electric equipment for new low-floor trams

Düsseldorf, (PresseBox) - Vossloh Kiepe has secured a contract with the Polish vehicle manufacturer Solaris Bus & Coach S. A. for five Jenaer Nahverkehr GmbH vehicles.

This is Solaris' first order for railway vehicles in Germany - until now they have been known as bus manufacturers. Opting for streetcar specialists Vossloh Kiepe, they have chosen a partner with long-standing experience in the field of electric systems.

The new Tramino Jena low-floor trams are 29 metres long and designed as three-part two directional vehicles. These new vehicles will undergo a modern design developed in order to suit the one-meter wide railway system in Jena. Delivery by Vossloh Kiepe consists of the complete electric equipment including the following components:

- Traction equipment
- Vehicle power supply
- Air conditioning system
- Control system
- Vehicle control
- Driver's cab equipment
- Passenger information systems, e.g. indicators, video, announcement system

The schedule for construction and delivery of the Traminos is quite demanding: The first of the vehicles are already scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of the year 2013. The Jenaer Nahverkehr will then have a total of 38 trams.
