Mitsubishi Electric awarded air conditioning contract for Siemens AG trains
Mitsubishi Electric secures air conditioning contract for Siemens Desiro trains in Germany
Japanese firm Mitsubishi Electric Corporation has been awarded a $15 million (£10.6m) contract to supply railcar air conditioning units to the Siemens Mobility Desiro trains which operate on the Rhine-Ruhr express (RRX) network within Germany.
The Desiro High Capacity railcars are used on the Rhine-Ruhr express (RRX) network which runs between cities and provinces within the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. Mitsubishi Electric will supply 328 air conditioning systems for 164 Siemens Mobility railcars, in a deal that is said to be worth 1.7 billion yen (£10.6m) to the Japanese firm.
The contract comes after Mitsubishi Electric invested in a new Transportation Systems business sector at Mitsubishi Electric Europe B.V and established Mitsubishi Electric Klimat Transportation Systems S.p.A. with the purpose of expanding the firm’s European potentialities and increasing production of cooling and heating systems.
Tetsuya Takahashi, head of the Transportation Systems business at Mitsubishi Electric Europe, commented: “This contract will not only enable us to bolster our presence on the continent, but also increase our links with car-builders, railway operators and other local customers.”
Siemens AG said it chose Mitsubishi Electric because of the firm’s reliability and its “extensive track record in delivering railcar air-conditioning systems” and because Mitsubishi Electric were the first Japanese manufacturer of cooling systems to be certified under the International Railway Industry Standard (IRIS).
