Long-distance train order

Following a Europe-wide tender, the Spanish manufacturer Talgo was awarded the order for new long-distance trains. The framework contract includes up to 100 trains, consisting of electric locomotives and passenger cars. We are ordering 23 new vehicles in the first batch (volume of capital expenditures: about € 550 million), the first of which should come into operation in 2023.
