Siemens wins Scotland rail order

Posted on May 21, 2008

  

Siemens, as part of a consortium led by the construction company Bilfinger Berger, has been awarded an order to build an 11.8-mile light rail line in Edinburgh, Scotland, as a turnkey project worth over $1 billion.

 

The contract for the consortium is worth $552 million, and the Siemens share is in the range of $252 million.

 

The first phase of the double-track line is scheduled to be ready for service in 2011. It will connect the city center with the northern suburbs and the airport. The plans call for a total of 22 stops.

 

As a member of the consortium, Siemens will be responsible for system intregration, supply of the communications, control and signaling equipment, the electrification and the substations, as well as parts of the track structure itself. A 10-year maintenance contract and the supply of depot and workshop equipment round off the contract.
